https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=257510 Bug ID: 257510 Summary: unstr does not produce a valid fortune file Product: Base System Version: 13.0-RELEASE Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Some People Priority: --- Component: bin Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org Reporter: firstname.lastname@example.org Created attachment 226804 --> https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=226804&action=edit Patch file to correct the issue Overview: While reimplementing the unstr command, I noticed that the original command, when displaying a fortune file in the order specified in its datafile, does not print the final '%' delimiter, which should end any fortune and any fortune file. Steps to Reproduce: # cd /usr/share/games/fortune # tail -1 freebsd-tips % # strfile -Co freebsd-tips "freebsd-tips.dat" created There were 134 strings Longest string: 746 bytes Shortest string: 39 bytes # unstr freebsd-tips | tail -4 % sh (the default Bourne shell in FreeBSD) supports command-line editing. Just ``set -o emacs'' or ``set -o vi'' to enable it. Use "<TAB>" key to complete paths. Build Date & Hardware: Additional Builds and Platforms: Any BSD version since 4.4. This is a 28 years old bug! Correction: Here's a patchfile to correct this in /usr/src/usr.bin/fortune/unstr/unstr.c -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
