i've ben trying to make something work but still havent figured something out.
I do the following:
[[email protected] ~]$ IFS=/
[[email protected] ~]$ export IFS
[[email protected] ~]$ PATH=.:$PATH
[[email protected] ~]$ echo "/bin/sh" > bin
[[email protected] ~]$ chmod 755 bin

Now the problem is:
if I execute 'sh -c "/bin/ls"' it just does a simple ls
But if i do 'sh -c "sh -c \"/bin/ls\""' it does what i expected (it executes the file 'bin')

Why doesn't it does the same in the first example??

thank's for your spent time.

Yes i know that gives me the list of files in the directory, but what i was expecting is to execute with that very same command line the program bin,due to my configuration of my IFS in sh.
