https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=271817 --- Comment #9 from Andrew "RhodiumToad" Gierth <firstname.lastname@example.org> --- (In reply to Mohamed Akram from comment #8) NetBSD reference: https://gnats.netbsd.org/cgi-bin/query-pr-single.pl?number=45981 That claims that the v7 manual said: Delete the pattern space. With 0 or 1 address or at the end of a 2-address range, place text on the output. Start the next cycle. ... which disagrees with what the spec now says. (As far as I can tell from a quick look, given that it's not the most readable code in the world, the v7 sed does in fact behave as documented in this case.) So, I think this can definitely be argued to be a defect in the spec; you should certainly take it up with them if you care about it. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
