I am stuck on section 10/13 on Grep l. There are two tasks the first one asks you to enter "grep -R Arctic /home/ccuser/workspace/geogrpahy". I can get that one ok. But the second one won't go through for me. It says to enter "grep -R1 Arctic /home/ccuser/workspace/geogrpahy". When I put that in it won't work. Then I get the "Keep Trying/Get Code" box and click get code, but it won't give me the code! What am I doing wrong? The only thing I notice is that the "1" in "-R1" that I type in looks different from the one "1" given in the task box. I can't copy and paste either, so I need to know how to type it in.
grep -R Arctic /home/ccuser/workspace/geography
[ ENTER ]
grep -Rl Arctic /home/ccuser/workspace/geography
[ ENTER ]
That's what I have been doing. How do you get your "1" to look like that in "grep -R1 Arctic". It's different from the "1" on my keyboard. I'm thinking that's where the problem is coming from.
Just realized that's the letter "L" and not number "1". Thank God for YouTube lol.
Yeah, you're right. That's where the problem is coming from.It is the small letter L that might look like a 1 in this font.
When you type
man grep and scroll through it, you will see that the option -l is just a short version and you could also use
--files-with-matches. Also you will see there are no numbers being used as a first argument.
Edit: Ah, you saw it already
