comment ls: cannot access /directory/path/*.rar: No such file or directory
apologies--I was thinking the OPs issue was that ls was set to a function or an alias that was munging the quotes; but in fact it is my function that was causing "*" to expand! I cannot remove the downvote unless you edit your answer.

A * inside single quotes is treated literally. A * inside double quotes is expanded as a glob.

comment What is the unix command to find out what executable file corresponds to a given command?
Be careful: if ls is a function or is aliased, you want 'type ls' rather than 'which ls'

Rather than using grep, you can specify "-e write=1" to limit the output to data written to fd 1.

comment SED: Search a alphanumeric string and replace it
Also, the -r is not strictly necessary, but it changes the syntax somewhat if it is omitted: sed 's/Test:r[0-9]\{5\}/...'
