Figured I'd post this to public. Maybe get some help.
 
Hi All -
I'm having an issue with brace expansion in bash on Mac osx.

This works correctly -
> echo {1..4}
1 2 3 4

If I do the same with strings I get two values -
> echo {one, two}

Gives me
"{one" and "two}"

So if I were to try and create two directories using -
> mkdir ./{testOne, testTwo}

I'll get these two directories -
./{testOne
./testTwo}

Any ideas? Thanks.

I could be off base but are you trying to work it like a sequence/int or a string/array?

As with debian/Ubuntu have sh symlinked to dash, are you certain your Mac is using bash?
