Bash version in haiku is 2.05 while the current is 3.2.

It'd be nice an upgrade, since the 2.05 contains a few bugs like #2113.

I managed to build bash-3.2 within Haiku and it seems to work fine, beside the termcap warning similar to the ftp one when running the binary.

Anyway, anyone aware of any test I can do before going further with the Jamfile?

As bash-4.0 has been released, I would make that version the target.

IIRC the show stopper for this one was lack of wchar support, which should be in place now? Sorry but I've been very busy to follow everything.

Last night I wanted to test BFS with a few scripts, but ran into a few problems, like I ran out of memory and couldn't launch any other program from the shell. And I had to end it (the bash) and restart it. I didn't even bother to investigate as I'm sure its related to the version of bash.

Resolution: fixed

the upgrade is done. NLS isn't activated. I expect a few bugs due to this upgrade, though not blocking.
