test -e cannot distinguish between foo and foo.exe
Mon Dec 19 15:11:00 GMT 2005
I noticed the following behaviour: (found by my favorite testcase ;) )
$ rm -rf foo* ; touch foo.exe
$ test -e foo && echo found foo
$ test -e foo.exe && echo found foo.exe
Hmm, how can I test if foo exists without also looking at foo.exe?
Does this count as a bug in test?
My current workaround is
$ find . -maxdepth 1 -name foo -exec echo _XfoundX_ \; | grep _XfoundX_ >
/dev/null && echo found foo
but that is a bit ugly.
