Hi all, I have this code:
declare -A CONSOLES=(
                     ["/home/pi"]="local"
                     ["pi@192.168.178.170:/home/pi"]="pitendo"
                     ["ftp://192.168.178.171/sd/retroarch"]="nintendowii"
                     ["ftp://192.168.178.172:1337/ux0:/data/retroarch"]="psvita"
                    )




unset $CONSOLES[local]
unset ${CONSOLES[/home/pi]}


echo "${!CONSOLES[@]}"

Open in new window

But I am not able to remove from CONSOLES the key / value pair 
["/home/pi"]="local"

Open in new window


Can you help?

Thanks.
