Using standard rc-1.4 and "rcp file solaris-machine:" to a recent version
of Solaris, I get "rc" on the solaris machine hanging taking all CPU in an
infinite loop (most, if not all the time).

OS is "SunOS sage 5.5 Generic sun4c sparc SUNW,Sun_4_40" with a variety of

Is this reproducable for you?

I haven't really looked at it, because the Solaris machines here aren't
particularly worth thinking about :)  It just means a hang whenever I use
my 'distribute-rcrc' function to copy my rcrc across 20+ machines of
differing architectures; Solaris is the only place I have a problem.


PS: Does anyone have rc 1..4 compiled for SCO unix, preferably with
readline support? We don't have a compiler on our SCO box and installing a
cross-compiler elsewhere to compile rc would seem a little excessive.
