In the Ubuntu 18.04 LT .bashrc file there is the following:
# set a fancy prompt (non-color, unless we know we "want" color) case "$TERM" in xterm-color) color_prompt=yes;; esac
Isn't xterm-color) an instance of unbalanced parentheses? And why does the line end with two semicolons?
To be clear, this is not something I wrote. It's in the virgin file, not edited by me.
If there are syntax errors, to whom should I report this?
