bash-1.14.7-23.6x RPM for i386

From Updates for Red Hat Linux 6.2 for i386

Name: bash Distribution: Red Hat Linux
Version: 1.14.7 Vendor: Red Hat, Inc.
Release: 23.6x Build date: Fri Nov 24 20:56:58 2000
Group: System Environment/Shells Build host:
Size: 399760 Source RPM: bash-1.14.7-23.6x.src.rpm
Packager: Red Hat, Inc. <>
Summary: The GNU Bourne Again shell (bash) version 1.14.
The GNU project Bourne Again shell (bash) is a shell or command
language interpreter that is compatible with the Bourne shell
(sh). Bash incorporates useful features from the Korn shell (ksh) and
the C shell (csh) and most sh scripts can be run by bash without
modification. Bash is the default shell for Red Hat Linux. It is a
popular and powerful shell, and you'll probably end up using it.

This package contains bash version 1.14, and it is included for people
who have old shell scripts (legacy install scripts, makefiles,
sysadmin-authored shell scripts, etc.) that depend on bash 1.14's
behavior and won't play nicely with bash 2.03.  Bash 2.03 is included
in the bash2 package.

If you have old shell scripts on your system that need bash 1.14 or
you just prefer this version of bash, install this package.
