Hi all,I've been trying for a few weeks to try to get this to work, and the /bin/sh keeps snagging the command line before passing it to pkg_info I'll use a different shell if I need to, but since I got everything except this one thing working, i'd rather keep it in sh In the shell script, i have a pkg_info -qLx "^$PKG-[0-9,._]+$" also tried (-X)tended regex instead of the standard rege(-x). sh keeps erroring out saying various $" isn't a valid variable name, or pkg_info doesn't find the anything there. And it does exist. This all came around with me trying to automatically update a bunch of ports. xorg-fonts is outdated, but xorg-fonts-100dpi or xorg-fonts-75dpi isn't. So the regex returns multiple values (as above). I just want the first, hence the anchors.
I tried following on my 8.0-CURRENT box: ----8<----8<---- abbe [~] monte-cristo% exec sh $ echo "^$PKG-[0-9,._]+$" ^-[0-9,._]+$ $ uname -a FreeBSD monte-cristo.france 8.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 8.0-CURRENT #21: Mon Nov 10 21:19:13 IST 2008 [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/ULE amd64 ---->8---->8----And as you can see in above paste, 'sh' doesn't evaluate $" as variable as it has evaluated $PKG as variable. this works with 'sh' shipped with 8.0-CURRENT. Maybe some issue with your 'sh'.
