Just putting it out there: if anyone ever wants help - debugging, problem-solving, tutoring, whatever - with the Linux CLI (bash/ksh93, GNU coreutils..., vi, emacs, sed, awk) and/or git, I'll help.
I won't make you feel bad for anything you don't already know. I promise. (Nobody ever should.)
I'll reiterate every once in a while. Boosts appreciated!
I have a problem with a bash script containing some sed (or awk, I don' t know how they differ)
Would you please take a look at this thread ?
It' s locked, my bad. But now it' s done. You should follow me in order to see it.
@AbbieNormal bit busy at $JOB today but I'll take a peek over lunch!!
anyway, just a few words to introduce you to the problem
There' s a bash script distributed with a package called "Autofs"
I would like to understand exactly what it does and possibly substitute it with another script written in Guile
because sometimes I run into troubles with Autofs and I already dedicated some effort to Guile (and Clojure) and I hate bash
I hope that' s clear !
Thank you so much for your help ! 🙏
@AbbieNormal I'm afraid the second link didn't work for me either, but I read back in your timeline and I think I found the script you mean?
