Bash Version: 3.0
Patch Level: 14
Release Status: release

Description:
I am trying to get the values of BASH_ARGC and BASH_ARGV, but they
seem to be empty? Is it a bug, feature, my misunderstanding, or a 
configuration issue.

Repeat-By:
Run the following script:

---------------CUT HERE----------------
function a
{
    echo "a args: $@"
    b calling function b
}
function b
{
    echo "b args: $@"
    set|grep ARG;
#    for ((i=0 ; $i < address@hidden ; i++))
#    do
#        printf "%s[%s](" "${FUNCNAME[$i]}" "${BASH_ARGC[$i]}";
#        printf "%s)\n" "${BASH_ARGV[*]}";
#    done
}

a calling function a
---------------CUT HERE----------------

And the output I get is

BASH_ARGC=()
BASH_ARGV=()
    set | grep ARG


Shouldn't BASH_ARGC be something like ([0]=>3, [1]=>3)
and BASH_ARGV contain words "calling function b calling function a"?
FUNCNAME correctly returns "b a"

Thanks
