=~ no longer working in bash. just try this little line:
if [[ "abc" =~ "abc.*" ]]; then echo inside; else echo outside; fi
this give "inside" up to fedora-12, but it gives
"outside" in fedora-13.
imho it's a serious changes since all shell script will fail which use
=~ :-(
is there any reason for this? or any quick fixes?
thanks in advance.
