Execute the Sed command
When I run the command
sed -e "s/$1/@[email protected]/" -i gen_certs.sh
I get the following error. I’m trying to replace the text $1 with another one below in the same file, instead of creating a new one, just modifying the current one.
sed: -e expression #1, char 0: no previous regular expression
Any ideas that could lead to errors and how to fix it?
Operating system: Ubuntu 10.10 32-bit
$1 If it is a double-quoted string, it will be expanded to an empty string (‘
You can use single quotes to keep the literal
value of $1:
sed -e 's/$1/@[email protected]/' -i gen_certs.sh
