Issue with grep

few days ago maybe 2, so i did my system update, i got grep update too, after after whatever i type in terminal i got this kind of error- same thing all the time,

egrep: warning: egrep is obsolescent; using grep -E


not only cd or sudo , that error all the time pop out
i tried downgrade my grep but still not worked,

Both egrep and fgrep have been deprecated since 2007. GNU Grep 3.8 makes that deprecation visible with the hope that it will induce people to use the standard methods.

My guess is that there is something executing egrep inside your zhs configuration, maybe in ~/.zprofile or ~/.zshrc files.


Haha I think everybody should have ripgrep installed :wink:

I’m glad you solved your problem.


i think sometimes leave post as not solved, WHY? = because others can write their opinion or questions, but not all the time, sorry btw for leaving this post as not solved !
