sin b553349251 env: Check unsetenv() return value
./env -u "" foo and ./env -u "A=123" foo should both fail.

sin 1b32732887 env: environ can never be NULL so don't check for it 2015-11-06 10:52:49 +00:00
sin 2366164de7 No need for semicolon after ARGEND
This is also the style used in Plan 9.

FRIGN 11e2d472bf Add *fshut() functions to properly flush file streams
This has been a known issue for a long time. Example:

printf "word" > /dev/full

wouldn't report there's not enough space on the device.
This is due to the fact that every libc has internal buffers
for stdout which store fragments of written data until they reach
a certain size or on some callback to flush them all at once to the
You can force the libc to flush them with fflush(). In case flushing
fails, you can check the return value of fflush() and report an error.

However, previously, sbase didn't have such checks and without fflush(),
the libc silently flushes the buffers on exit without checking the errors.
No offense, but there's no way for the libc to report errors in the exit-

GNU coreutils solve this by having onexit-callbacks to handle the flushing
and report issues, but they have obvious deficiencies.
After long discussions on IRC, we came to the conclusion that checking the
return value of every io-function would be a bit too much, and having a
general-purpose fclose-wrapper would be the best way to go.

It turned out that fclose() alone is not enough to detect errors. The right
way to do it is to fflush() + check ferror on the fp and then to a fclose().
This is what fshut does and that's how it's done before each return.
The return value is obviously affected, reporting an error in case a flush
or close failed, but also when reading failed for some reason, the error-
state is caught.

the !!( ... + ...) construction is used to call all functions inside the
brackets and not "terminating" on the first.
We want errors to be reported, but there's no reason to stop flushing buffers
when one other file buffer has issues.
Obviously, functionales come before the flush and ret-logic comes after to
prevent early exits as well without reporting warnings if there are any.

One more advantage of fshut() is that it is even able to report errors
on obscure NFS-setups which the other coreutils are unable to detect,
because they only check the return-value of fflush() and fclose(),
not ferror() as well.

FRIGN 6f207dac5f Don't return but _exit after failed exec*() and fork()
Quoting POSIX[0]:
"Care should be taken, also, to call _exit() rather than exit() if exec cannot be used, since
exit() flushes and closes standard I/O channels, thereby damaging the parent process' standard
I/O data structures. (Even with fork(), it is wrong to call exit(), since buffered data would
then be flushed twice.)"

FRIGN 27656a0cbc Audit env(1)
1) Shorten synopsis and reflect this in the manual
2) Use argv0 in usage()
3) Decrement argc in argv-loop for consistency
4) Make it clearer which error-code results from which errno in enprintf
5) Use idiomatic for-loop also for environ. Don't increment these pointers
   in the loop itself!
