Sort and Exit Codes Inconsistency
"$ sort < a ; echo $?
bash: a: No such file or directory
but the manpage says sort returns error >1 if an error occur... any idea or is it just inconsistancy?"
and in man -s2 intro, it says:
" 2 ENOENT
No such file or directory
A file name is specified and the file should exist but
doesn't, or one of the directories in a path name does
which is the same as my program:
$ ./a.out sort L10Q1.ca
bad open: No such file or directory
Any ideas? My program does a sort < L10Q1.ca redirection. a mixture of pipe, fork, execlp, wait, etc.
I am using:
$ uname -a
SunOS hostname 5.8 Generic_108528-16 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire
man -s1 sort
