I’m converting a bash script to an F# script to fix a problem with regex in the bash script. But after the regex runs, I need to run more code.

I’m trying to run code like shown below, but it’s not doing anything, and it doesn’t output anything. I have confirmed that pwd returns the expected current directory. When I run the same command in a bash script, it works as expected.

// 3. Fetch all the new/modified files into the delivery folder.
|> Seq.iter (fun filePath -> 
    cli {
        Shell BASH
        Command $"git show HEAD:{filePath} | install -D /dev/stdin {delivery_folder}/{repo_name}/{branch_name}/{filePath}"
    |> Command.execute
    |> ignore

    Console.WriteLine $"Downloaded {filePath}"

The original bash script looked like this:

for filename in $list_of_files; do
    trimmed_filename=$(echo ${filename} | xargs)
    git show HEAD:${trimmed_filename} | install -D /dev/stdin ${delivery_folder}/${repo_name}/${branch_name}/${trimmed_filename}
    echo \'${trimmed_filename}\'

You could also try that one: Command $"\"git show HEAD:{filePath}\" | \"install -D /dev/stdin {delivery_folder}/{repo_name}/{branch_name}/{filePath}\""

I tried that, but it did not create any files. I’ll see if I can get Powershell to work. Thanks for your help.

But thank you for using Fli and don’t hesitate to open further issues when you have any.
