Character following -R?


What is and how do you type the character following -R in grep 1? I've tried 1 (one) & l (lower case letter L) but neither work?


It's a pipe. On my keyboard, it's Shift + \.


hello am having the same problem and I tried a pipe symbol and is still giving me error


I tried also an L and l also 1 and nothing, in the capture above I wrote workspace bad and corrected and still is giving me error


The whole command is:

grep -Rl Arctic /home/ccuser/workspace/geography

So, it is not a pipe, it is a lower L character. Try it again, with the correct path.


grep -Rl Arctic /home/ccuser/workspace/geography

I am having the same issue. I have tried, L, lowercase L, , pipe, letter i capitalized, and the number 1. None of them work for me. There is a bug.


Please post the screenshot of the terminal after using the correct command.


it is lowercase "L". I tried the lower case L and it worked for me
