bash hates twisted (me too, sometimes)
I have a strange bug with bash shebang: when I try to give twistd as interpreter, bash tries to execute the script as a shell script !
Here is a simple, not working, twisted script with a shebang:
#! /usr/bin/twistd -y from twisted.application import internet, service
$ bash -c ./test.tac from: can't read /var/mail/twisted.application
Bash is trying to execute the script as a shell script ! (
from is a
$ zsh -c ./test.tac Failed to load application: 'application'
The error is correct (there is no application defined in the twisted script). It really looks like a bug in bash ..
