There is an interesting story about that in another place. Unix and Unix-like systems, and Amiga systems, adopted this convention from Multics. No such restriction exists in the ncurses license. Bash's syntax has many extensions lacking in the Bourne shell. This means that you can port an Open Source tm application to cygwin, and distribute that executable as if it didn't include a copy of libcygwin.

Over time this meaning has been co-opted and has eventually been changed. But it will behave differently in response to your locale settings.

The latter case is interesting. It makes more than one change, but most are cosmetic e. Generated results need not exist as files. It is worth noting that all changes that I have made since the most recent release would be in that event copyright by me. In addition to alternation, brace expansion can be used for sequential ranges between two integers or characters separated by double dots.

The best example of this is the newline problem on various operating systems. Ncurses provides a different version of the terminfo.

Later, I added functions to support simple threaded applications, and Juergen Pfeifer extended that. Copyright and Licensing The terminfo database is a special case. However, Raymond's disclaimer was based on more than one misconception. In the mailing list, I pointed out the reason for my change. Presumably therefore, these people have not actually looked at ncurses.

That would deprive a substantial fraction of the current user base of the use of subsequent versions of the software. Juergen Pfeifer wrote most of the form and menu libraries. The Bash command-line completion system is very flexible and customizable, and is often packaged with functions that complete arguments and filenames for specific programs and tasks. Newer versions of Bash allow a third integer to specify the increment.
