'head' utility

April 28, 2009 — BarryK
I have upgraded this from the Busybox applet to the full version, from the 'coreutils' package.

I was compiling the latest 'xine-lib' and it failed, reporting that an operation involving 'head -n -1' had failed. I checked and the Busybox applet will not accept a negative value for the '-n' parameter.
