Stay in the loop…

Follow the Tweets.

Every new command is wrapped in a tweet and posted to Twitter. Following the stream is a great way of staying abreast of the latest commands. For the more discerning, there are Twitter accounts for commands that get a minimum of 3 and 10 votes - that way only the great commands get tweeted.

What others think

Lots of info, but a very useful trick!

I've read the manual of bash but I can't understand the point of "\C-m".

Great trick by the way, thanks a lot...

Comment by Josay 318 weeks and 2 days ago

yeah, what's the "-a\C-m" for?

Comment by linuxrawkstar 318 weeks and 1 day ago

heckuva lot more info that fits on one screen. hardly a dashboard, but i guess some could see that as useful. If you're going to throw out that much information then you might as well add lsof in!

Comment by linuxrawkstar 318 weeks and 1 day ago

That last piece is for a return. If you omit the \C-m piece the command will print to the screen and you'll still need to hit enter.

NICE STUFF
