Message-ID: <9306161502.AA24353@oldp.astro.wisc.edu> (raw)

Some people have asked what the following footnotes refer to:

            [i] See 4.13.
            [k] See 4.13.
            [l] See 5.6.
            [m] See 5.5.
            [n] See 1.5.

1.5 recommends that rc should be statically linked on systems including
those running SunOS, Solaris, and OSF/1.  

4.13 mentions the deficient test in SCO Unix and the complete absence
of /bin/test in Unicos (took me a while to figure out why trip.rc
wasn't working...).

5.5 mentions that Apollos require a real binary for the login shell, not
a script (and I though /etc/shells was bad to start with).

5.6 describes the NeXT window manager brain damage.
