Incidentally, so far the only problem report with rc-1.6b3 was a thinko in the documentation (now fixed). If anybody's discovered any problems at all, *please* let me know. Thanks! > It appears that the consensus > was not to include [the equals hack] in rc, but I wondered if it > could be a build-time option or even a commented line > in parse.y that the user could enable at build time. I'm not sure if there was anything as grand as consensus! I agree with you that it should be available in some way to those that want it; probably as a configure `--with-eq-hack' option or somesuch (although at the same time I'm reluctant to introduce yet more configure options). At the moment, I really want to get rc-1.7 out the door, as it does contain important bug and portability fixes over rc-1.6. When that's done, we can reconsider more exotic things... Regards, Tim.
