[Solved] grep fails

Trying a simple grep piping like:

$ glxinfo | grep Rendering

Yields:

ls: cannot access 'Rendering': No such file or directory

Or:

$ps aux | grep vlc

Which yields:

ls: cannot access 'vlc': No such file or directory

Same for finding in file like:

grep Rank /mnt/data/personal/configs/pacman

Yields:

ls: cannot access 'Rank': No such file or directory

-------------

$ uname -a
Linux darkBit 4.15.7-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Feb 28 19:01:57 UTC 2018 x86_64 GNU/Linux

$ ls -lh /usr/bin/grep
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 156K Jul  3  2017 /usr/bin/grep

What's going on with grep?

Re: [Solved] grep fails

What does `type grep` give you?

Re: [Solved] grep fails

Good catch, Scimmia! Some how it was aliased as "ls". I've changed the alias in the .bashrc file and that solved the problem.

Thanks! smile
