    If you use bash, your clive command is operating as expected. But if you use zsh, i noticed that you have to escape the question mark (\?). This behavior might be a result of my zshrc but others may come upon the same problem. % clive\?v=goTaNrLsny8
    BTW thanks for this nice advent calendar.
