It was intended to be used as a way to format the PIDs according to printf-style formatters, but accepting unsanitised input from the user is quite dangerous, as shown in #924792. The proposed solution to #924792 was to let pidof -f interpret only '%d' and '\n'. This is at least an unnecessary complication. pidof is already printing the PIDs as integers (!), and any formatting can (but I would say should/must) be done downstream by sed/awk/whatever. We can't add a formatter to any single CLI command :\ Please remove the unneded '-f' flag. Unix is much much better than that. KatolaZ [signature.asc (application/pgp-signature, inline)]
