overlay command doesn't work as documented

  1. Change foundin to "5.45"
  2. Change icomment to:

    According to the man page, overlay -# arguments should accept a spawn-id, but it only allows an integer (line 3254 in exp_command.c) and spawn ids are strings in the form "exp#", not simple integers.

    If I try to use just the number after "exp", the overlay command doesn't work either. Probably, a call to Tcl_GetChannelHandle on the "exp#" channel type is missing. Also the overlay command should only accept "exp#" type handles.

  3. Change login to "anonymous"
  4. Change mimetype to "text/x-fossil-wiki"
  5. Change private_contact to "c3a0e28af55ebac7f129145bad36e988467ce1b6"
  6. Change severity to "Critical"
  7. Change status to "Open"
  8. Change title to "overlay command doesn't work as documented"
  9. Change type to "Code_Defect"
