Description edwin 2002-07-12 15:10:01 UTC
The old PERL-RE made it possible to use \t to indicate tabs.
The new REINPLACE_CMD doesn't provide such a feature.


This is more a sed_inplace problem which I can't solve.
A patch would be to check all REINPLACE_CMD's for unsupported \-commands.
Try to build ports/devel/jam (the one dated July 11th)

Unfortunately, this is the way POSIX regexp work, so that there is little 
that can be done about that (see re_format(7) for details). Use USE_PERL if 
you can't workaround the problem.
