i used this command
tar -cz -f "'basename \'pwd\''.tgz" !&
its not working unfortunately. only create a tar file as 'basename \'pwd\''.tgz
There are backticks
`, not single quotes
$(basename "$PWD")is indeed equivalent.
i need to know how to do the popup command below to convert as above
tar -cz -f "!?&Archive Name:?archive .tgz!" !&
i just need to replace "archive .tgz" to "$(basename "$PWD").tgz" but its not working like that at the moment
any help ?
That's not possible using such a simple custom command. You would have to implement much more complicated separate script that does the parsing and prompting and then opens its own session to call the
