(Useful) Stupid Unix Tricks?

chreekat sed for backups (2362 comments)

Well I just came up with this this very moment:

sed -i.bak file1 file2 ...

Backed up a bunch of files that I was going to do some experiments on.

Fun with itsalltext

chreekat chreekat writes  |  more than 7 years ago

I am just testing out the Firefox extension 'itsalltext'. I don't use GUIs
if I can help it, so I had to make a script that calls vim from an xterm,
and gave that to itsalltext. (Since it won't let me specify a command line,
and instead asks for an executable.)

Whee, and now I'm editing a text window that already had text in it!
