New Doom install (macOS Ventura, emacs-mac port), ripgrep installed through homebrew.
doom doctor, got:
> :completion vertico ! The installed grep binary was not built with support for PCRE lookaheads
Initially I was confused - my homebrew-provided
rg has PCRE lookahead support. However, looking at
modules/completion/vertico/doctor.el, there are doctor checks for both
rg, and only the
grep check fails (because macOS’s system
grep is now very old).
So, my questions is: if
rg is present, does it matter that
grep doesn’t support lookahead?
If it doesn’t matter, then either the
doctor tests could be slightly refactored to reflect this, or a note could be made in the docs to reassure OCD folks like me who are determined to get a clean bill of health from
If it does matter then I’ll have to install a newer/better
