            Ag / Grep Exact Match Only Search
            Asked 2021-Dec-16 at 22:32

            I am having an issue with using Ag (The Silver Searcher)...

            In the docs it says to use -Q for exact match, but I don't understand why it does not work for my purposes. If I type something like ag -Q actions or ag -Q 'actions' into my terminal, it returns all instances of actions, including things like transactions and any other strings that actions is part of.

            I have tried a couple other combinations of flags from the docs, including -s and -S, among others, but still I cannot get strictly strings matching just actions to return for me.

            I can't get this to work with grep either. Does anyone know how I can get what I need with ag? (or even with grep)...?

            Thank you in advance!

            Because ag (and grep), find files that contain something. ag -Q means to interpret the search as an exact literal string, not a fuzzy string or a regex. Okay. But a file that has the word "transactions" in it contains exactly, literally the character sequence actions. Sure, it contains more than that too, but that's not surprising.

            Probably you're looking for a word-boundary search, grep '\bactions\b' or ag -w -Q actions (maybe ag -w -Q -s actions). But that is not at all the same thing as "just actions", it's a specific requirement on the things surrounding "actions" (namely that they be the beginning or end of a line, or non-letter characters). You have to tell the computer what you actually mean.



            Unable to cross compile iOS programs on linux
            Asked 2020-Dec-06 at 00:10

            I know that someone already asked this question but it isn`t up to date anymore. Most of the links are dead and the commands are not relevant anymore.

            I have read these

            Compile IOS program from linux commandline

            How to cross-compile clang/llvm for iOS?

            For example, I have been trying to compile silversearcher-ag for my iPhone 6 (jailbroken). This is the project link

            I am targeting iOS 12.4.

            These are the commands that I`ve tried

            ./configure CC=/home/growtopiajaw/Desktop/cctools-port-master/usage_examples/ios_toolchain/target/bin/arm-apple-darwin11-clang CXX=/home/growtopiajaw/Desktop/cctools-port-master/usage_examples/ios_toolchain/target/bin/arm-apple-darwin11-clang++ --host=arm-apple-darwin11


            I am using cctools-port to cross compile the project. My compiled cctools toolchain is located under /home/growtopiajaw/Desktop/cctools-port-master/usage_examples/ios_toolchain/target and below is how the toolchain`s directory structure looks like

            This is my configure log:

            This is my make log:

            Apple does not ship PCRE. You need to get the headers and dylib/tbd files manually.

            If you're using checkra1n or unc0ver, then the deb on the APT repo contains headers as well, so you could just use that.

            If you plan to package this into an APT/dpkg file, make sure to add pcre as a dependency.



            Efficient search pattern in large CSV file
            Asked 2020-Oct-22 at 18:52

            I recently asked how to use awk to filter and output based on a searched pattern. I received some very useful answers being the one by user @anubhava the one that I found more straightforward and elegant. For the sake of clarity I am going to repeat some information of the original question.

            I have a large CSV file (around 5GB) I need to identify 30 categories (in the action_type column) and create a separate file with only the rows matching each category.

            My input file dataset.csv is something like this:

            Docker SSH-Key looking for a simple solution
            Asked 2020-Oct-21 at 18:08

            I'm trying to copy my ssh-keys into my docker, it's a very simple docker including some LinuxTools via Package Manager. A asking because, I can't come up with a simple solution ADD/COPY seem not to work, using docker-volume or compose seem to be over the top. Please advice.



            Answered 2020-Oct-21 at 18:08

            You can't copy files into a docker container that live outside of the build directory. This is for security reasons. What you'll need to do is first copy your id_rsa file into the same directory as your Dockerfile, and then change the ADD to use the copy you just made, instead of trying to copy it from the absolute path that it is currently using.

            I would also suggest changing the ADD to COPY, as it is easier to work with and has less unexpected behavior to trip over.

            so at your command line:
