            How can I create and use a backup copy of all input args ("$@") in bash?
            Asked 2022-Jan-04 at 19:17

            I need the ability to back up and then later use (both to read and print and to pass to another command as arguments) all input args to a bash program, but can't figure it out. Here is my attempt:




            Answered 2022-Jan-04 at 03:28

            Add parentheses and store them in an array. This will preserve each of the arguments as separate words and avoids all the backslash escaping complexities.



            Download Only Pre-Compiled Binaries of Rust Crates
            Asked 2021-Dec-15 at 10:51

            I use multiple rust packages in my desktop. To install those packages i use



            Answered 2021-Dec-15 at 10:51

            Since crates can be compiled with or without certain features which result in different code, there isn't any mechanism to up- or download pre-compiled crates. On top of that, the list of supported targets is very long which would make it very likely that the platform you're on doesn't have pre-compiled binaries.

            Finally, there'd need to be additional mechanisms to sign the code and verify that the pre-compiled code matches the source code.

            So all in all there are several obstacles that render implementing this impractical.



            Exclude match if string is prefaced with another string
            Asked 2021-Nov-25 at 01:21

            I have a feeling this will get closed as a duplicate as it seems like this would be a common ask...but in my defense, I have searched SO as well as Google and could not find anything.

            I'm trying to search SQL files using ripgrep, but I want to exclude matches that are part of a single line SQL comment.

            • I do not need to worry about multi-line /* foobar */ comments. Only single line -- foobar
            • I do not need to capture anything
            • I don't need to worry about the possiblity of the string being part of text, like SELECT '-- foobar' or SELECT '--', foobar. I'm okay with those false exclusions.

            Match examples:

            • Match: SELECT foobar
            • Match: , foobar
            • Exclude: SELECT baz -- foobar
            • Exclude: -- foobar
            • Exclude: ---foobar
            • Exclude: -- blah foobar blah

            AKA, search for foobar but ignore the match if -- occurs at any point before it on that line.

            I have tried things like negative lookbehinds and other methods, but I can't seem to get them to work.

            This answer seemed like it would get me there:

            That answer says to use (? to find matches of vec that are not prefaced with grad(. So if I translate that to my use case, I would get (?

            Match a list of words preceded and followed by some special character
            Asked 2021-Nov-24 at 08:34

            I am trying to write a regex that matches a very long list of words (4000 words) if the word is at the start of the string or at the end of the string or preceded and followed by a special character, the current regex I am using is this:



            Answered 2021-Sep-17 at 19:25

            First of all, the (?:[^a-zA-Z0-9]|^) and (?:[^a-zA-Z0-9]|$) patterns are used here as word boundaries with _ excluded. It makes sense to streamline them and use (? and (?![^\W_]) respectively.

            Next, the words you have can be processed to create a regex trie out of them for efficient search.

            Here is an example code:



            How to properly setup Fish and version the configuration?
            Asked 2021-Nov-19 at 15:22

            I'm switching to fish from zsh and I'm struggling to find the correct way to it setup for my taste. Also adding that I want to add it to my dotfiles repository. Should I version the whole ~/.config/fish folder?

            Where should I put my environment variables? Should I just add them to the fish_variables config file? I was thinking on sourcing a file ~/ for the ones I don't want to version. Is this a good idea?

            I use exa and ripgrep and I like to override grep and ls with them. Can I just set aliases for them overriding like I would with zsh/bash?

            I want to use it inside neovim as well and I'm using the vi keybindings. Will this conflict with neovim? If so is there a way to make the vi keybindings active only outside of neovim?

            It seems most of the stuff I use is provided by vanilla fish without plugins (which I'm quite happy about). Is there any tips or must have plugins I should install?



            Answered 2021-Nov-19 at 15:22

            I have my ~/.config/fish in git, works well. I share my config over several machines, and to have host-specific settings and functions, I do this:



            Search text inside all files in all directories (and subdirectories) in project with SpaceVim
            Asked 2021-Nov-17 at 15:23

            So I just started using Neovim/Spacevim, and it's so awesome!

            I am still getting used to everything, since I have never used Vim or anything like that before.

            My question revolves around searching for particular text in all the files of the currently open project.

            I am using the nerdtree file manager, and I was wondering how I might search through all the files in the project for a specific string. Like if I wanted to search function thisExactFunction() throughout the currently open folder/directory, how would I go about doing that? The main goal is to have a list of all the files that contain this search string.

            I have fzf installed (as well as ripgrep), but seem to be having trouble in searching for specific text inside of all files. I can only search for files themselves, or some other search that does not yield what I need.

            Can anyone point me in the right direction...? Thanks!



            Answered 2021-Nov-16 at 22:58

            Check out the Ggrep command that Fzf supplies - see this series of vim screencasts to see how to use vim's in built features (quickfix list populated by :vimgrep) to achieve the same using other grepping tools.

            Custom functions

            I have a function in my .vimrc that uses ag silver searcher to search within all the files in a directory (and any subdirectories). So if you install ag, this should work:



            Grep summary with file name only once
            Asked 2021-Jul-30 at 19:51

            I am trying to figure out a way to summarize the grep results and show results with filename once instead of every line. I know that ripgrep has this feature. I went through grep man page but couldnt find anything similar.

            I have a python script that process results of ripgrep. Looking to reuse the same script for grep if i can get the similar results

            Any suggestions on how we can implement that.

            Answered 2021-Jul-30 at 19:51

            grep doesn't have an option to do this, so you'll need to print the filenames yourself in a loop.

            Filter out single instance of string from a single line containing multiple similar matches with grep or sed?
            Asked 2021-May-22 at 19:13

            I have been making a shell script to be able to download a certain experimental branch of Blender from their website. When curling the site all versions appear in a really (and I mean really long) string of all the html together. I can grep (ripgrep spcecifically) only the Linux versions, but when wanting to grep or even sed again, all the filenames start with "https://" and end with ".tar.xz".

            And they are all on the same line, so matching the beginning of the first also matches the end of the very last match.
