  • Enhancement for the 'busy' command originally posted by busybee : less chars, no escape issue, and most important it exclude small files ( opening a 5 lines file isn't that persuasive I think ;) ) This makes an alias for a command named 'busy'. The 'busy' command opens a random file in /usr/include to a random line with vim.

    alias busy='rnd_file=$(find /usr/include -type f -size +5k | sort -R | head -n 1) && vim +$((RANDOM%$(wc -l $rnd_file | cut -f1 -d" "))) $rnd_file'
