A new snapshot of rc is available from here.
Nothing too major has changed, although rc has just acquired its first
idiom from C 9x! (With suitable autoconfiscation for older systems.)
Relevant ChangeLog entries are appended.
Thanks to Bengt Kleberg and Jeremy Fitzhardinge for reporting problems
with the previous snapshot.
Tidiness: makenonblock() was a rather poor choice of name for
a function which makes a file descriptor *not* nonblocking :-).
Portability: apparently some systems declare `char *basename(const
char *)' in system header files. Changing our basename() (in
history.c) to match this prototype allows it to be compiled on such
systems, and is harmless. (Harmless, that is, if no system declares
`char *basename(char *)'.)
Bug: system-bsd.c needs to include "wait.h".
Warnings: some versions of gcc warn about "ambiguous" `else' clauses.
Portability: assigning va_list objects doesn't work everywhere (Linux
on the PowerPC, specifically). Use the C 9x invention va_copy()
instead, if it exists, otherwise fall back to assignment.
Documentation: help HP-UX users by mentioning that you need `cc -Ae'.
Also, HP-UX make will build rc in a separate directory.
Tidiness: remove unused functions from print.c. Anybody wanting to
use this library in another project should follow the pointer in the
documentation to an improved version.
