: It's my impression that the csh/tcsh ^old^new history operator
: does not allow the "old" string to contain spaces:
: % echo a b
: a b
: % ^a b^ab
: Modifier failed.
: Is that a correct assumption, or is there a way to do it? I've
: made various escaping and quoting attempts, all of which failed.
I've done this:
% echo a b
% ^a\ b^a\ c
echo a c
So try escaping the spaces and see if yours works.
