I'm guessing your default shell is NOT bash. This option is set on line 28 of boiler.in. You can try to comment line 28 out or set line 1 to !#/bin/bash. Let me know what shell you are using with boiler. Also, the distro, Ubuntu, Fedora, etc...
ok. not to be a complete dunce, but this is what happens after I change line 1.
/usr/local/bin/boiler: line 1: !#/bin/bash: No such file or directory
/usr/local/bin/boiler: line 210: unexpected EOF while looking for matching `)'
/usr/local/bin/boiler: line 589: syntax error: unexpected end of file
I'm using Ubuntu 10.10
using sh, this is the result.
/usr/local/bin/boiler: 1: !#/bin/bash: not found
set: 28: Illegal option -o posix
I must have had sh or dash as the shell previously.
I fixed a FATAL syntax error and pushed a new V42 release. There was something wrong with how Bash 4 parses here-documents. Please give me some feedback as to whether this release works for you. It may not address your errors.
