|Subject:||bug#20514: Patch to tie --help and --version behavior to POSIXLY_CORRECT|
|Date:||Wed, 6 May 2015 12:42:39 -0400|
Another argument against the change: This proposal would only affect
/bin/test (or 'env test', or other constructs that force resolution
through PATH). However, most shells have 'test' as a builtin, so it
will NOT impact those instances. Having coreutils needlessly differ
from other implementations is undesirable. If you can first get 'bash'
patched to do this, you might have a stronger argument, but bash is one
of those programs where the mere act of setting POSIXLY_CORRECT in the
environment changes a lot about how bash behaves.
