Okay, there are 4 superfluous new line characters on it (hmm, I get only two here). Otherwise, it appears to be fine. Most likely, these are the result of the "echo" lines in your gpgtar script. I'd suggest to redirect output to stderr for them as well, and they should vanish. It's possible that the "read" calls write to stdout as well, resulting in more newline characters. I'm not sure if shell (even zsh) is the right programming language for this kind of task. :-/ -- Florian Weimer Florian.Weimer@RUS.Uni-Stuttgart.DE University of Stuttgart RUS-CERT +49-711-685-5973/fax +49-711-685-5898 -- Archive is at - Unsubscribe by sending mail with a subject of "unsubscribe" to
