I have seen the general case statement in
bash that an asterisk
* to denotes the default pattern. If an expression isn’t matched with any of the other patterns in the case statement the default clause is executed.
case $1 in ("-u2") printf "%s\n" "TODO" ;; ("-u3") printf "%s\n" "TODO" ;; ("-u1"|"-u"|*) printf "%s\n" "$KCFRONT_A" ;; esac
I have modified it such that the default also gets called for case of
-u. This strategy seems to work. Is this a valid and understandable thing to do?
It works, but it’s not necessary.
* matches any string, so naming them doesn’t do anything.
