making life a little easier
Hi.. I have been using linux exlusively for about a month and I completely love it!
My newbie question is the following:
I would like to know how I can make a "shortcut" for long things. Here is an example of what I'm after. To connect to my computer upstairs I type "ssh -l username 192.168.x.x" everytime I want to connect. Coundn't I do something so that when I typed "upstairs" it would connect me. I know there is a way, but I have no clue on how to find this information.
Do I need to write a simple shell script for this? can you show me an example of how I might do this? Will making an alias work? How?
Google and man pages have gotten me this far, but now I am lost. I am sure your answer will open a whole new world of linux computing for me!
