Hi, I'd like to talk in [[Talk:Bash#Colors for "command not found"]] about [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Bash&diff=285981&oldid=285980]. -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 03:00, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

pacman tips

1. Why do you think you need to change newlines to spaces?

2. I think that Archers are capable of creating trivial aliases and functions themselves.

-- Karol (talk) 19:24, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

@Karol
1. Because it doesn't work with newlines in an "alias" context. Try yourself!
2. I'm an "Archer" and know Bash, but I spent ten minutes to write that line. Do you think that a Wiki should tell everyone: «Ok, guy, find yourself the solution»?

1. Works here:
$ pacman -Qqdt
firefox
flashplugin
$ pacro

Your solution with newlines doesn't work on my computer :-( It works fine only with spaces.
I think that, since in a bash context a separator is a space and not a newline, an "universal" solution is to use spaces instead of newlines. But this is my opinion.--Grufo [ contribs | talk ] 20:30, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
Do you get any errors when running sudo pacman -Rs $(pacman -Qqdt) in the terminal? What's the output of echo "$IFS" | cat -te? If you substitute the sed part with tr '\n' ' ', does it still work for you? -- Karol (talk) 21:09, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
@Karol
> Do you get any errors when running sudo pacman -Rs $(pacman -Qqdt) in the terminal?
No, out of alias context sudo pacman -Rs $(pacman -Qqdt) works
> What's the output of echo "$IFS" | cat -te?
What is $IFS?? However the output is:
^I$
$
> If you substitute the sed part with tr '\n' ' ', does it still work for you?
Substituting the sed part with tr '\n' ' ' it works fine!

IFS is the internal field separator, the default is a space, tab or newline. Not sure if you copied it verbatim, but the space seems to be missing:
$ IFS=$' \t\n'
$ echo "$IFS" | cat -te
 ^I$
$
That shouldn't matter though, as the problem is with the newlines and they're included in your IFS (it's the single '$' on the second line), as expected.
I'd like to sort this out, so please open a thread on the forums. Please provide sample output when using the alias.
Using either single quotes or double quotes and escaping the '$' in the alias both work fine here. -- Karol (talk) 22:31, 22 November 2012 (UTC)
