"Without knowing what 'doesn't work' is supposed to mean..."
sounds denigrating to mean. 

If you had only read the post to which you were responding, I agree the
meaning would be unclear. But taken with my original post, it seemed
pretty clear to me that I was simply saying that the spacing with the
"-e" option is not correct, which is what I originally meant to write.

OK ok - I accede your point - if I had simply cut and pasted it, I
could have avoided this error.

I did that before I posted, but I guess I missed it. The keyword is
"EXPANSION" and I didn't know to look under that keyword, and reading
through the entire bash man page is quite tedious. 

I've never cared for the bash man page - it's too big and covers too
many topics in one page. Organizing things a little more hierarchically
would greatly aid digestion.
