[File-rc-users] Bug#649407: file-rc: Mistakes in rc script

Package: file-rc
Version: 0.8.12
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

In order to understand the order of treatment of runlevel.conf, I open the rc
script and found some errors:
 - sorting as brought by #327085 creates some errors, due to conflict on the
   "x" variable, also used in is_elem() function.
 - debug and verbose options are inverted between code and explanation

I corrected that, and use some time to improve the cosmetic:
 - complete reindentation
 - homogeneous use of "[]" and "test"
 - simplify execution conditions at the end of the file
 - remove "set centerline" which is useless

I hope this will be useful.

This also resolves #601985.

Please consider clarifying that to switch between one level and another one, rc
runs all kill commands and then all start commands, both in the "sort column"
