@nicoty:matrix.orgnicoty I think so. At least that's what the second and first calls to printf seems to indicate 18:23:02
@nicoty:matrix.orgnicotyI even copy and pasted the outputs from my terminal to a text editor to see if there were any leading spaces or anything, but that doesn't seems to be the case, so I'm genuinely befuddled as to why it doesn't work 😐️18:24:36
@gate32:matrix.orggate32I checked it again, but it looks like it should be working18:31:27
In reply to@bullshark_:matrix.org

How can I get the user for uid 1000 in a script? This is outputting more than just the user.

$id 1000
uid=1000(bullshark) gid=1000(bullshark) groups=1000(bullshark),998(wheel),991(lp),3(sys),90(network),98(power)
Hmm I think you can probably use parameter expansion for that https://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/009695399/utilities/xcu_chap02.html#tag_02_06_02. You'd need to use it twice, once to remove the first ( and everrthing before it, and then again to remove the first ) and everything after it which should leeve you with just the username.
@nicoty:matrix.orgnicoty Or apparently this would work as well: getent passwd "$uid" | cut -d: -f1 23:00:33
@nicoty:matrix.orgnicotyOh never mind. Looks like you already figured out a solution lol23:00:39

@bullshark_:matrix.orgbullsharkI have $1 and $3 in single quotes, but they are still being interpreted as function arguments instead of part of awk. http://vpaste.net/kV7VI20:45:01
