I have been learning linux commands and got this error. My text is here:
Fred apples 20 Susy oranges 12 Mark watermellons 12 Robert pears 4 Terry oranges 9 Lisa peaches 7 Egemen aaaa 12 Susy oranges 12 Mark grapes 39 Anne mangoes 7 Greg pineapples 3 Oliver rockmellons 2 Betty limes 14
I searched for the lines not ending with
2. My command:
egrep '2.+' mysampledata.txt
But interestingly I got these two lines:
Fred apples 20 Susy oranges 12
I tried some other arguments for these command and changed the sequence of the lines. I did not got any false result.
What's wrong with this construction?
