you raise a valid point. Some systems may not have tac, so it's surely
better not to depend on that utility. At the same time, the patch that

with that? Does m4 have something we can use instead of depending on
Hi Peter,

IIUC, 'tac' was introduced to reverse the order of the output from 'ls', and I'm thinking that just replacing 'ls' with 'ls -r' would suffice, or am I missing something?
