Autoconf is supposed to work on every Unix system out there, including FreeBSD, which uses ash, as well as others with their own POSIX compatible shells like SunOS 4, AIX, Solaris and Unixware. I've never had trouble using ash with autoconf, etc. before. In my (limited) experience, you'll find bash used as /bin/sh on most Linux systems, but not much else. Admittedly, pdksh and zsh both manage the `... <<EOF` properly; but I don't see it used in any of the other autoconf macros installed on my system. -- Carey Evans http://home.clear.net.nz/pages/c.evans/ "Reality must take precedence over public relations, for Mother Nature cannot be fooled." -- Richard .P.
