Hi, when I write a bash script using regular
expressions something goes wrong with the single
quotes that I do understand should surround the
regular expression. The code I show below works okay
when the single quotes are removed, but it does not as
shown. For this example the single quotes are not
really needed but is useful for showing my problem, my
real script does need the single quotes because I'm
trying to match several sub-expressions.
any help is appreciated,
if [[ hola =~ '(.*)' ]]
