7 thoughts on “Command Line Tricks

  1. With all due respect, I have been using those command line “tricks” since 1987. Some might be a slightly new, but any UNIX (or UNIX alike) daily user knows them quite well. Ahhh… newbies! 😛

  2. If you liked that you might also like Jerry Peek’s book “Unix Power Tools”. Sort of a tome of command line tricks/hacks. It’s an O’Reilly book. If it had been written later, it might be in one of their “* Cookbook” or maybe more like “* Hacks” series.

    Also, you mentioned in August that you were looking at zsh, any progress? Zsh has a lot to offer. Though one of the most useful is the command line completion, which you can easily enable by adding these commands to your .zshrc:
    autoload -U compinit; compinit

    Zsh has quite a few CL tricks…
