Re: MISTAKE in /etc/mc/ file!!

Hello, Zeus!
. . .

Both in lines 203 & 211 of the above mentioned file, the regular expression fed to egrep command needs putting a backslash before the "|" symbols (vertical slash?) in order for them to not lose their special meaning in the expression. I've obtained this information from the egrep manual.

There are no needs to put '\' before .z
Anyway these rules were rewritten without egrep and commited to CVS.

If not so, the command never finds no ".gz", ".z" or ".Z" extension in the input files and don't pass the "-d" option. So, when trying to decompress them with the "y" option in the User Menu, makes nothing and returns error.

Well, but as far as I remember this worked fine for me. What OS/shell do you use?

Best regards,
