I'm having a problem with redirection under bash that I hope the readers
of this list can shed some light on.
I am trying to build Harvest under NT 4.0. The configuration script has a
number of commands to the effect of:
cat > conftest.h <<EOF
What this is suppose to do is put the contents of the intermediate lines
into the file conftest.h. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work. Bash
consistently gives me a file not found error. If I manually enter the
command "cat <<EOF" and then type several lines of text followed by
"EOF", that works find. If I try cat filename > conftest.h, that works
too, but putting the two redirection constructs toget on the same line
seems to consistently fail.
Since I do noit regularly read this list, I would be grateful for
responses via email to email@example.com. Thank you.
