Writ sh*t that I felt interesting enough to warrant keyboard smashing.

Fun in learning...

Posted 08-10-2020 at 03:10 PM by KGIII

This is gonna be brief.

These may seem simple to you, but lately I've discovered some neat stuff. It's probably stuff you can use or already know.

First, you can have multiple alias profiles.

source ~/.bash_aliases also works as source ~/.bash_aliases2, source ~/.bash_aliases3, etc...

Second, you can pipe 'man' to a text file.

man grep > grep.txt

This makes me curious about writing a script to export all installed man pages to a text file. It seems like it'd be fairly easy to do. I'll maybe take a peak at doing so.

Anyhow, both of these are pretty basic things, but things I'd not tried previously - and discovered they worked. It's kinda neat finding stuff like that. LQ should have a weekly thread that's something like, "This is something new that I learned about Linux this week!"
