GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 726908
head -n -1 is not portable
Last modified: 2014-03-23 22:19:00 UTC
head -n -1 is used in function sourceend in tests/testrunner.sh, but POSIX says the number should be a positive decimal integer. Using -1 cause the following error on FreeBSD:
head: illegal line count -- -1
Does sed '$d' work?
Yes, it works.
