Does anyone know (remember) which Unices had
.../bin/[ be a link
to .../bin/test. I remember this being the case, but it is not so on
any recent Solaris. It is the case on my Mac, so in at least one BSD
derivative. I looked through a 7th edition tarball from the archive
and it's not the case there. So my guess is that it is a BSDism, and
it probably was the case in SunOS 4 and before, and I guess on at
least 4.2BSD & later.
I remember using /bin/[ in SCO Xenix and SCO Unix, and AT&T SYS III &
FreeBSD and NetBSD still have this link:
$ ls -li /bin/[ /bin/test
683091 -r-xr-xr-x 2 root wheel 7460 Aug 19 2006 /bin/[
683091 -r-xr-xr-x 2 root wheel 7460 Aug 19 2006 /bin/test
I suppose OpenBSD does too, but I don't have a machine to check.
