POSIX compliant options?
This article refers to the bash internal implementation of test, from what I can see. It's nice to include non-standard options but it would be even better to point out which ones are POSIXLY_CORRECT (and therefore work across many versions and operating systems) and which ones are specific to particular implementations.
For starters, there's no test for seguid in POSIX as far as I know. I don't think it's available on HPUX unless you load a GNU shell or similar. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 18:11, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
Not sure I agree with the poster who said: at 07:16, 27 June 2008 (this article requires an total rewrite) (AzaToth). However, I have made some edits for style and consistency. I'll remove the cleanup tag on the main page. I welcome any other feedback. I'd really like to replace the dashes with something else, but I'm not sure what would be better.
Maybe replace this:
-z String1 - the length of the String1 variable is 0 (zero).
-z String1 = the length of the String1 variable is 0 (zero).
