For shell scripts specifically, this'll find most of them - add paths where appropriate, I guess:
file /bin/* /sbin/* /usr/bin/* /usr/sbin/* | grep shell | less
To preserve aliases, store them in a shell config file. If you're going to be executing them 'through' things, so to speak, you might want to write little scriptlets that do the job, as not everything will pay attention to your aliases, being internal to the shell, sort of.
Originally posted by david_ross To see a list of commands that are in your path hit the tab key twice.
To create an alias you can use alias:
Tab twice is great but that gives 3291 commands! Is there a short list of popular commands, such as netconfig, comes to mind ? Possibly 20 to 30 popular commands. I am not referring to normal commands like ls, pwd, rm, etc.
Also adding an alias does not keep it after I end a session. Where in Slackware can I store aliases possibly along with the system aliases?
