Subject: Line continuation and variables
Date: Tue, 26 Aug 2014 16:15:04 +0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1554581409055304@web13g.yandex.ru> (raw)


While playing with sh generators I found that dash and bash have different
interpretations for <slash><newline> sequence.

$ dash -c 'EDIT=xxx; echo $EDIT\
> OR'
$ bash -c 'EDIT=xxx; echo $EDIT\

$ dash -c 'echo "$\

Is it undefined behaviour in POSIX?

WBR, Oleg Bulatov
