Re: Problem with grep in Emacs 23.2

Hi Peter,

Do you mean the grep-command I set should be runnable in shell? I just use grep-command to store the grep template, so it cannot be run in shell.

Why we need probe-grep? To test whether grep exists and whether its function works correctly? Can I skip it?

Thanks

Does this work from the command line? (I'd use ' instead of \" to prevent the shell from expanding the meta-characters ``*´´ or ``.´´, which could cause the failure you observe.)
