Subject: prefer lowercase commands in /usr/bin
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 564b
It appears that the binary is installed as: /usr/bin/SOAPsh While technically correct name "SOAP", however it is tedious to have to remember to capitalize the correct letters. It would be more typical to request "show if you have anything related to soap" and type: soap[TAB] on command line. SUGGESTION If possible, please rename the command to more descriptive: soap-shell as this is not really a "/bin/<shell>", there is no need to abbreviate the extension to "sh". A word "shell" is better noticed if $PATH is listed or searched with find(1).

Hi Jari, even though you are technically right, I'm not going to change the spelling of the SOAPsh command due to a very simple reason: It would break existing scripts using SOAPsh. If you need the command frequently, I'd suggest adding an alias. Martin

A suggestion. The transition could be handled with: #!/bin/sh echo " The SOAPsh has been renamed. Please migrate to use program <NAME>. Please see release NEWS <possible URL link> " exit 1 This would help people to upgrade to a new release as changes happen in software.
