           Summary: hush: 'eval' built-in fails on multiline strings
           Product: Busybox
           Version: 1.13.x
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P5
         Component: Standard Compliance
        AssignedTo: unassigned at busybox.net
        ReportedBy: kpet at free.fr
                CC: busybox-cvs at busybox.net
   Estimated Hours: 0.0

Platform : Lantronix Xport Pro (m68knommu, Coldfire)
Distrib  : uClinux

I'm using a program that outputs lines like this: 


Willing to use these as variables in a script without using a temporary file, I
do (simple example): 
eval "`./myprog`"

echo $VAR1
echo $VAR2

This works with bash but not with hush (which is the only shell provided with
busybox that works on my platform): only first var is ok. I tried playing a
little with the IFS variable, without any satisfying result. I had to modify my
program to output all variable assignations on a single line.

Is this behavior expected ?
