Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-7755) httpfs shell code has hardcoded path to bash
Date Wed, 11 Feb 2015 00:42:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-7755?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14315290#comment-14315290

Colin Patrick McCabe commented on HDFS-7755:

bq. What system is this [that lacked /usr/bin/env]? Just wonder.

It's been a long time!  It was an embedded system I was logged into, and I think the setup
was a little weird.

I wasn't actually seriously suggesting this as a problem :)

>          Components: scripts
>    Affects Versions: 2.4.1
>            Reporter: Dmitry Sivachenko

>         Attachments: bash.patch
> Most of shell scripts use shebang ling in the following format:
> #!/usr/bin/env bash
> But some scripts contain hardcoded "/bin/bash" which is not portable.
> Please use #!/usr/bin/env bash instead for portability.
> PS: it would be much better to switch to standard Bourne Shell /bin/sh, do these scripts
really need bash?
