Open a text file in CLI

If you are working on the command line and you want an application to open a text file, do it
running a command.
However, this requires you to know the name of the application, which can be difficult to remember,(bad memory!) Especially if you don't know what application it was written in! But Linux has a solution for people like us. Its called gnome-open.

Gnome-open actually makes use of the gnome file handlers to decide what kind...

If you want an excuse and can't think up a witty one, try this:

Type the following or copy and paste, into a terminal:

echo `telnet 666 2>/dev/null` |grep --color -o "Your excuse is:.*$"

Linux Gimux Vol 1.

This is a 28 page PDF e-book of collected "tips, tricks, scripts and bits "

I have found these to be extremely helpful and so have collected them into one document, so that whenever I forget how to do something......there it is!
