Just solved this. Was the red herring intentional or a typo?

Had no trouble getting through the first few basic levels and figuring out what I had to do to solve this one. I did, however, get hung up on "manipulating" my command to be exactly what the mission was looking for. For anyone else that's stuck at that point - I found it helpful to pay special attention to where the files created are saved and where that is relative to the target directory. Also, like others have said, take a short break and you'll probably see it next time you look at it.

Hey guys, new user so far. enjoying the site so far, it's nice to see immediate results of trial and error. I figured out challenge 8 but I don't understand fully why it worked. Would someone be able to pm me to chat?

This was really frustrating! One of my first ideas was absolutely correct, but I had been using a flag that is not supported by the solution regex, which made me wonder about the solution for quite some wasted minutes... :-/

So, hint:

Do not use flags.
