Globbing Issue after Upgrading tcsh RPM Package on EL5 (Doc ID 973142.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version: 5.0 - Release: OEL5
x86_64

Symptoms

After upgrading tcsh to tcsh-6.14-14.el5_4.2 on RHEL5/EL5, globbing in tcsh shell messed up, e.g. :
#tcsh
#echo '123' > foo
#echo 'foo' f*

\o\o foo
#egrep '1' f*
egrep: Invalid back reference

Expected results should be:
#tcsh
#echo '123' > foo
#echo 'foo' f*
foo foo
#egrep '1' f*
123

Changes

Upgraded the tcsh to tcsh-6.14-14.el5_4.2.
