I am trying to build a grep search that searches for a term but exludes lines which have a second term. I wanted to use multiple
-e "pattern" options but that has not worked.
Here is an example of a command I tried and the error message it generated.
grep -i -E "search term" -ev "exclude term" grep: exclude term: No such file or directory
It seams to me that the
-v applies to all search terms / patterns. As this runs but then does not include
search term in results.
grep -i -E "search term" -ve "exclude term"
