It doesn't seem to work.

$ ls -lh /usr/lib/udpcast/tmpl/bin/
total 2,5M
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 952K 2008-01-06 18:50 busybox
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  43K 2008-01-04 15:32 date
-r-xr-xr-x 1 root root  310 2003-05-17 09:23 dhcp.script
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1,5M 2008-01-06 18:50 fullbox
-r-xr-xr-x 1 root root  266 2003-06-11 21:50 probecards
$


I still get:

# date > date.txt
# cat date.txt
#


Regards.
