#4016 closed defect (worksforme)

syntax highlighting works with #!/bin/sh but not with #!/bin/bash

trac 0.10
GNU enscript 1.6.3

As near as I can figure, syntax highlighting in either strict sh or bash forms should work with enscript, since /usr/share/enscript/hl/enscript.st contains:

  /^#![ \t]*(\/usr)?\/bin\/sh/                          sh;
  /^#![ \t]*(\/usr)?(\/local)?\/bin\/bash/              bash;

and everthing else regarding it seems ship-shape, but trac may possibly be clobbering that, as /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/trac/mimeview/enscript.py contains only

types = {
    'application/x-csh':        ('csh', 2),
    'text/x-csh':               ('csh', 2),
    'text/x-ksh':               ('ksh', 2),
    'text/x-sh':                ('sh', 2),
    'application/x-sh':         ('sh', 2),
    'text/x-zsh':               ('zsh', 2),

Not sure if that's it or not, since I'm only guessing at unravelling what controls the highlighting, but something's not right, regardless. I changed a particular example from #/bin/sh in rev86 to #/bin/bash in rev90 and can flip through the revs and watch the syntax highlighting disappear.

I can confirm this behaviour, and would love the day when my bash scripts are hightlighted with pretty colours.

Trac is a great tool, thanks.

Have tried setting the MIME type in Subversion?

 $ svn ps 'svn:mime-type' 'text/x-sh' <your file>

Check also TracIni#mimeviewer-section (Ok, I know, the documentation doesn't show in 0.10, fixed in 0.10.1dev), you can configure the mimeviewer to handle #!/bin/bash like this:

mime_map = application/x-sh:bash

Thanks to all - especially Christian Boos - tried that and it worksforme, too. ;) But, true, just couldn't find that in 0.10.

Um. This message is not spam. I tell you three times. *Resubmit*

Okay, this filter is really lame. Down from 62% to 54%. Maybe I should open a new bug about spam bugs? And why should I have to have cookies enabled when 'm just going to delete and redisable them in a minute?

Anyway, thanks again for the mime tip.
