Bashism (Was: Locale testing)



2008/12/6 Tzafrir Cohen <tzafrir@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>:
This is bashism.


That is why we call it "bash"!

#!/bin/sh
LC_ALL="" LC_TIME="en_DK.utf8" /usr/bin/thunderbird "$@"

Or even better:

#!/bin/sh
LC_ALL="" LC_TIME="en_DK.utf8" exec /usr/bin/thunderbird "$@"


I could probably google and find out why the semicolons are not
necessary, nor the export command, but why is the "exec" preferable?
