Subject: [PATCH] hush: fix conditional statements exit code
Date: Tue, 10 Aug 2021 07:47:12 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210810054712.1547433-1-andrej.picej@norik.com> (raw)

Fix conditional statements ("if" , "elif", "while" and "until") exit
code when used in scripts. Before the change, when conditional statement
evaluated false just before the end of the script, script's exit code
would have been 1 (instead of 0), which implies error condition. This is
not expected nor desired behavior, so correct it by handling such cases
and passing exit code 0 (SUCCESS) instead in such situations.

This problem/bug was previously discussed on barebox mailing list.
Although a simple workaround was found (explicit exit 0 at the end of
scripts), a decision for fixing Hush was encouraged.
