Subject Re: config/2326: AccessConfig and ResourceConfig redirect to nul fails
Date Mon, 01 Jun 1998 17:23:29 GMT
Note that, technically, /any/path/nul is a "valid" name to use for such
things.  Just like some mad Unix sysadmin had gone and created a "null" in
every directory on the system.

I would, however, sleep quite easily if we only allowed "nul" without any
path to be used.
