#471 closed defect (fixed)

compressdoc error with relative path

Reported by: miller_lee_p@… Owned by: blfs-book@…
Priority: lowest Milestone:
Component: BOOK Version: ~CVS
Severity: trivial Keywords:


if compressdoc is invoked from /usr/bin with current directory syntax (i.e. (cd /usr/bin; ./compressdoc) the following error results

./compressdoc: line 328: ./compressdoc: No such file or directory

the script works fine if called with either absolute path or no path given and relying on $PATH to find the script.

Has this been fixed? There is some mention about starting with ./ in the script.

comment #3 may be unrelated I discovered a typo in the development version where the line: "$MY_NAME" ${COMP_METHOD} ${COMP_LVL} ${LN_OPT} ${VERBOSE_OPT}

exit 1

is missing a '\' at the end of the first line, should be: "$MY_NAME" ${COMP_METHOD} ${COMP_LVL} ${LN_OPT} ${VERBOSE_OPT} \

exit 1

the typo causes an "infinite" recursion loop.

Added a backslash to the command reported in comment #5 in R3471

This is really two bugs. The backslash was fixed in R3471 and the script now demands an absolute path.
