#922 Lines returning 0 when it should not

I have encountered an odd error with the Lines BIF in ooRexx 4.0.1 both the 32/64 bit versions at least on Ubuntu Linux.

I am running the official .deb packages. Host OS's are Ubuntu 9.04 x32 and Ubuntu 8.04 x64.

Lines in 4.0.1 returns 0 even if there is a line to read. On 3.2 it correctly returns 1 when there is data to read.

Trace of the problem in 4.0.1:

193 - somelines = Lines( input ) ;
194 - say somelines
0
196 - DZ = LineIn( input ) ;
197 - say DZ
dada-backup.sh complete! RC=0

Working example with 3.2:

193 - say somelines
>V> SOMELINES => "1"
>>> "1"
1
194 - DZ = LineIn( input ) ;
>V> INPUT => "STDIN:"
>A> "STDIN:"
>F> LINEIN => "dada-backup.sh complete! RC=0"
>>> "dada-backup.sh complete! RC=0"
195 - say DZ
>V> DZ => "dada-backup.sh complete! RC=0"
>>> "dada-backup.sh complete! RC=0"
dada-backup.sh complete! RC=0

    Oh, I should have mentioned, this is when reading from STDIN.

    If this is fixed, we should close it as a duplicate.

    Michael, if you would provide a simple test program with your bugs, it makes them a lot easier to deal with. For instance, I could quickly test if your problem is indeed fixed in trunk.

    We believe this is fixed in trunk by the 5744 comit, so I'm closing it as out of date.

    Michael, if you send a test program to my g mail account, I'll double check that it is indeed fixed.
