:(icase) often won't (unless you combine with :(glob)). If we turn grep's --max-depth feature into pathspec magic (feasible, just not sure if it's actually useful), it won't need quoting either. Even with :(glob), because of the complexity of the pathspec, it's less likely to match anything and be expanded by bash, so no quoting required. >> How about making ":q/xxx/" an equivalence of ":(xxx)"? > > A moderately strong no from here. -- Duy -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
