Hello, My name is Eric.
Could You please tell me why I can not change the value of IFS variable,
and how can I do it right?
I'm using bash 2.04.21(1)-release (i386-redhat-linux-gnu)
When I type:
export IFS=: or export IFS=":"
echo $IFS - gives me standard IFS value (space,tab,new line)
Value of IFS never changes!
Please help me.

Thank You very much in advance.
