Subject: Tests [ 0 -eq $UID ] don't work as in bash
Date: Wed, 7 Sep 2016 16:44:03 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CAFOXTdceLsR_xBcs=B2QajQHW_UJyBKTr6R8fQvUNCxikYn77w@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

Hello!

I'm sorry if this is FAQ question, but googling didn't report it, so
I'm asking here.

In our scripts we often use constructs like

##############
if [ 0 -eq $UID ]
then
        echo "This script must not be run by root user!"
        exit 1
fi
#################

This works fine in bash, but dash fails with warning " [: -ne:
argument expected". Is this intended feature? How to work around it in
dash then?

Best regards
Andrei Voropaev
