- Subject: tzcode dependency on /bin/ksh
I was wondering who "owned" the tzcode package and if they
could include an install script to check for the existance
of "bash" OR "ksh", and create a link at install time to
the installed substitute or just patch tzselect so the
dependency on pdksh could be removed.
The documentation in "tzcode" lists "bash" as the first
alternative to "ksh". Rather than requiring an install of
an extra package "pdksh", which isn't used for anything else,
it would be better to have it use the existing "bash" which
is installed as the standard shell.
# This script requires several features of the Korn shell.
# If your host lacks the Korn shell,
# you can use either of the following free programs instead:
# <a href=ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/>
# Bourne-Again shell (bash)
# <a href=ftp://ftp.cs.mun.ca/pub/pdksh/pdksh.tar.gz>
# Public domain ksh
Just figure it would be nice not to require unnecessary software
