Same as inside [, but no need of quotes inside [[.

I'm not sure. OT: When I was going through recruitment process, dberkholz pointed to me that I use things bash4-only. And again: why we need to stick to ancient 3 version? I would understand pseudo POSIX compatibility, but what is the benefit of bash3 compatibility while bash4 is stable already? -- Amadeusz Żołnowski PGP key fpr: C700 CEDE 0C18 212E 49DA 4653 F013 4531 E1DB FAB5
