Issue #55 resolved

Error on startup (egrep)

Jason Baker
created an issue

Whenever I start my shell, I get the following error:

egrep: Unmatched [ or [^

I'm not really sure how to track down the source of this. I //believe// it's a virtualenvwrapper problem, but I'm not sure. Is there any extra info I can give you to help track it down?

    What shell & what version of virtualenvwrapper?

    You can verify that it's coming from the wrapper by sourcing it from the command line directly:

    source /usr/local/bin/virtualenvwrapper.sh
    

    (changing the path, as needed).

    This is with zsh and version 2.2 of virtualenvwrapper.

    Here's what happens if I source virtualenvwrapper.sh directly:

     . /usr/local/bin/virtualenvwrapper.sh
    egrep: Unmatched [ or [^

    OK, I think I see where the problem is. I'll try to reproduce it here and get a fix out as soon as possible.

    If you want to try patching locally, open virtualenvwrapper.sh and look for the first egrep call (there are two, you want the one that has a $ in the regex). I *think* if you replace the double quotes in that command with single quotes the issue should go away.
