set: 28: Illegal option -o posix

when typing "steam" or "boiler" at the terminal. Any ideas where I went wrong?

    I'm guessing your default shell is NOT bash. This option is set on line 28 of 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. in bash....

    /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.

    $ boiler /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.
