Description:
        internal commandline functions not reenterant??
        To the best of my understanding, I'm not sure if I broke some kind
        of coding suggestion etc, or what.  So this may be more of a question
        or a feature request then anything else.  I've read the bash
        documentation in the past, and as I recall, internal commands have
        their quirks. (esp wait, which it a address@hidden( to work around!)    

Repeat-by:
        In its simplest form:

        echo bar | read foo ; echo $foo
        
        bar is not echoed.

        In my real world script:
        echo "$val3" | urlencode | read val3
fix:
        I'm not conserned about a fix, I have a handfull of otherways to
        solve this... :)

Please reply to address@hidden with any inquiries.


Keep on GNU'n!
