Check this out , 1st up a typical LINUX DEBIAN HOST
Okay that's simple; " we touch 5 files name jim with different character case."
Using the unix find and "-iname" ( ignore case name ) and we found the 5 files. Okay this is good and correct behavior what I was expecting to find ( once again excuse the pun )
Okay next up , a MACOSX 10.10.1 aka Yosemite b14B25
So I'm like scratching my head as to why I can't touch 5 files name Jim & with various character letter case. Okay maybe this is a BSD thing since MACOSX is grown from the BSD family.
So let's see if a OpenBSD hosts has the same issue ( btw OpenBSD is my favorite OS just to let you know )
( openbsd )
So what I learned today; " is macosx is really screwed up and when testing scripts, it best to test them on the actual host you planning to run these on ". I collaborate with some other mac users to see if they can shed some light on this and why and we came up with this.
It pertains to the filesystem type of "HFS" and the limitations within the filesystem type, naming construction, etc..... So even a restrictive filesystem like MSdosFAT would not allow you to do the same.
So after 20+ years using various OSes you still will find your self learning new things or refreshing things you should already have known. Maybe I should buy one of these books
