OK, I'll buy both of these.  Thanks!

And looking again at the signal code, I found a major booboo (of my
own making), which pulled in the horrid longjmp() code on systems
where it was needed.

With this, and some other problems I've fixed, there have been a few
changes since rc-1.7.  A summary is appended, and please see my
hacking page for further details.


So, time for a new snapshot.  Here it is:




  Bug: fix globbing of broken symlinks.


  Bug: readline doesn't handle EIO either.


  Bug: variables that are sometimes exported (i.e. $prompt and
  $version) need to be made exportable if they are inherited from the

  Portability: don't call sigaction() for SIGKILL or SIGSTOP; don't
  hand a garbage signal mask to sigaction() (thanks Jeremy
  Fitzhardinge).  Also, remove use of SA_INTERRUPT (SUSv3, BSD,
  etc. have SA_RESTART with the inverted meaning).
