  • It's useful mostly for your custom scripts, which running on specific host and tired on ssh'ing every time when you need one simple command (i use it for update remote apt repository, when new package have to be downloaded from another host). Don't forget to set up authorization by keys, for maximum comfort. Show Sample Output

    echo -e '#!/bin/bash\nssh remote-user@remote-host $0 "$@"' >> /usr/local/bin/ssh-rpc; chmod +x /usr/local/bin/ssh-rpc; ln -s hostname /usr/local/bin/ssh-rpc; hostname

  • ulimit [-SHacdflmnpstuv [limit]] Provides control over the resources available to the shell and to processes started by it, on systems that allow such control. The -H and -S options specify that the hard or soft limit is set for the given resource. A hard limit cannot be increased once it is set; a soft limit may be increased up to the value of the hard limit. If neither -H nor -S is specified, both the soft and hard limits are set. # jumps straight to the definition of ulimit in the bash man page. Show Sample Output

    man () { if [[ $(type ${1}) =~ "is a shell builtin" ]]; then; /usr/bin/man -P "/usr/bin/less -iRs --pattern=\"^ *${1}\"" bash; else; /usr/bin/man ${1}; return; fi; }

  • Shows all linked file and destinations. The 'ls -l' command lists the files in long (1 file per line) format, and the grep command displays only those lines that starts with an l (lower case L) -- a linked file. Updated: Remove reference to hard links because this command does not apply to hard link as others kindly pointed out. Show Sample Output

    ls -l | grep ^l
