In bash, I have a directory that holds some file names that start with underscore
_ and others that don't.
I want my script to check if a folder has any files that don't start with
_. I write
if [[ -f $dir/[!_]* ]] then echo "There are unmarked files." else echo "All files marked." fi
But when I run using a folder with files that do and do not start with
if statement has the opposite effect of what I intended. I list the entries in the folder that clearly display files without
_, but the output keeps saying,
All files marked.
What am I missing?
