General :: Use Regexp In Diff / Exclude Lines That Contain The String "[skipthisline]"?

Feb 10, 2011

I need to compare 2 files using diff. The problem I've encountered is that I need to exclude certain lines that contain certain phrases. I know that diff supports the -I switch but no matter how I try to form the regexp it doesn't seem to work the way I expect it to. If anyone has used the -I switch before could you please post some examples of how it is used.

diff -I "[skipthisline]" file1 file2 > output.diff

I need to exclude lines that contain the string "[skipthisline]" but I have no idea what syntax is used after the -I switch. Is is supposed to be included in quotes or slashes /[skipthisline]/ or entered without either? I need to include a backslash before each bracket so that it's not interpreted as a set of characters like [a-z] but is instead interpreted as a string. Do I need to use 2 backslashes? "\[skipthisline\]"

Is it sufficient to simply type the string I want to match or do I need to match the entire line in order to exclude it from the output?

Programming :: Bash: Regexp In 'if' Doesn't Evaluate Correctly

Mar 1, 2011

I'm using an 'if' statement to check whether one of positional arguments is a word or a construction like "x-y", but something doesn't seem right.

Here is the relevant part of the code:

if [[ "$3" =~ [a-Z]-[a-Z] || "$3" =~ [a-Z] ]]; then
grepRange=$3; else grepRange=$4
And for the input like this:


but shouldn't the $grepRange variable be blank in this case?

Bash version is 4.1.7(1)

Programming :: Bash Regexp String Compare Stopped Working?

Oct 20, 2010

Have a bash script which contains a line like this:

if [[ ${array[${last}]} =~ "screenpc.PRODUCTION.*" ]]

which WORKED as expected in bash 4.0.33 and now fails in 4.1.2

Instrumented the script to print the value of the left-hand side and it is exactly what is expected.

As noted above, this has been working fine until we installed Fedora 13 (kernel 2.6.33), and now it fails.

Tried setting shell 'extglob' to On with same results.

Did something change? Are there other shell/bash options that need to be set?this has the whole installation stopped!

Slackware :: Can't Install From DVD With AHCI Enabled?

May 12, 2011

I'm doing a clean install on a new machine, and when I tried to boot the install DVD, ISOLinux gave me the following error:

Could not find kernel image: linux After some experimentation, I found that switching the SATA mode in the BIOS from AHCI to Native IDE solved the problem and installation is proceeding normally.

However, I want AHCI enabled. (I think, unless someone has a compelling reason why I shouldn't.) My web-searching suggests that if the system is installed in IDE mode, it won't boot if I switch to AHCI afterwards. Is this a common problem? Is there a workaround? Is it a motherboard issue?
