bash shell command line expansion


It is difficult to edit /etc/exports by looking at man 5 exports command out put

how can I pass the required line in man 5 exports command
out put to the /etc/exports file

eg:- I think it is something similar to this

man 5 exports | grep '^/projects' >> /etc/exports

Hi,

I'm not entirely sure what it is you want to accomplis, but this:

man 5 exports | col -b | grep '^ [ ]*/'

greps the example lines from the exports manpage. Placing >> /etc/exports will append the output to the /etc/exports file.

But these lines from man exports are examples and need to be changed for your particular setup.

BTW: It would be easier to have 2 terminals open, one for editing the /etc/exports file and one with the man page. You can copy/paste the parts you need.

Hope this helps.
