Hi Derek, trying to get this to work in bash but running into a problem with csd

lionel:~/Projects/slackbuilds$ bash --version
GNU bash, version 4.1.10(2)-release (x86_64-slackware-linux-gnu)
lionel:~/Desktop$ ss
1) /home/lionel
2) /home/lionel/Projects
lionel:~/Desktop$ csd 1
usage: csd <number greater than 0 | regular expression>
lionel:~/Desktop$ csd 2
usage: csd <number greater than 0 | regular expression>
lionel:~/Desktop$ csd Projects
lionel:~/Projects$

Hmm... I use 4.1.5(1) at work and 3.x at home and both work well. Can you put a set -x in the csd() function and post the output?

@lionelyoung

lionel:~/Projects$ ss
1) /home/lionel
lionel:~/Projects$ cd slackbuilds/
lionel:~/Projects/slackbuilds$ ss
1) /home/lionel/Projects
2) /home/lionel
lionel:~/Projects/slackbuilds$ set -x
lionel:~/Projects/slackbuilds$ csd 1

  • csd 1
  • typeset num=1
  • typeset removedDirectory
  • '[' 1 '!=' '' ']'
  • c=0
  • re=1
  • num=0
  • '[' 0 -lt 2 ']'
  • grep -q 1
  • echo /home/lionel/Projects
  • (( c=c+1 ))
  • '[' 1 -lt 2 ']'
  • grep -q 1
  • echo /home/lionel
  • (( c=c+1 ))
  • '[' 2 -lt 2 ']'
  • '[' 0 == 0 ']'
  • echo 'usage: csd <number greater than 0 | regular expression>' usage: csd <number greater than 0 | regular expression>
  • return 1

Try that... maybe your version of BASH has screwed up the variable regex stuff.

@lionelyoung

Hi Derek, your latest gist with the following line works -- thanks!
if [ "$(echo $num | sed 's/^[0-9]*$//')" != "" ]; then

@derekwyatt

No problem... your bash sucks :) (Either that or my 10 year old KSH / BASH / Mishmash isn't quite clean and beautiful :D)

@OliverJAsh

Hi Derek. Have you got an updated revision now that you're working in Zsh?
