Commands tagged exit (7)

  • this exits bash without saving the history. unlike explicitly disabling the history in some way, this works anywhere, and it works if you decide *after* issuing the command you don't want logged, that you don't want it logged ... $$ ( or ${$} ) is the pid of the current bash instance this also works perfectly in shells that don't have $$ if you do something like kill -9 `readlink /proc/self`

  • this command will add the following two lines into the ~/.bash_aliases: alias exit='pwd > ~/.lastdir;exit' [ -n "$(cat .lastdir 2>/dev/null)" ] && cd "$(cat .lastdir)" or redirect it to the ~/.bashrc if you like Donno, I find it usefull. You may also define an alias for 'cd ~' like - alias cdh='cd ~'


    -1
    echo -e 'alias exit='\''pwd > ~/.lastdir;exit'\''\n[ -n "$(cat .lastdir 2>/dev/null)" ] && cd "$(cat .lastdir)"' >> ~/.bash_aliases

  • When you use the "exit" command in a Linux terminal window, it not only closes the terminal window itself but also the terminal emulator app, such as GNOME Terminal or Konsole, that it belongs to. If you use the "exit" command on macOS, however, Terminal.app still shows a dot below its Dock icon and is still running in the background. This alias, when entered into ~/.zshrc, overrides this behavior.

    alias exit="killall Terminal"

Random quote from Borat -- no html parsing
Turns out smacie.com has a text file containing every single one of the borat quotes, each one on a newline. This makes it very convenient, as this can be done without any sed-parsing, and uses less bandwitdth! Note that borate quotes are quite offensive, much more so than "fortunes-off"!

Using parcellite, indents the content of the clipboard manager
This command takes the content of a Parcellite-managed clipboard manager and add one level of indentation to it. It may be useful to indent a block of code which will enter inside another, already indented one but I use it mostly to indent code I will post in Stack Overflow questions and answers.
