  • Most distributions alias cp to 'cp -i', which means when you attempt to copy into a directory that already contains the file, cp will prompt to overwrite. A great default to have, but when you mean to overwrite thousands of files, you don't want to sit there hitting [y] then [enter] thousands of times. Enter the backslash. It runs the command unaliased, so as in the example, cp will happily overwrite existing files much in the way mv works. Show Sample Output

  • If you are a regular user of Google Chrome and Gmail Offline, you'll find that Gmail Offline stops working after a while due to corruption of its local storage in your browser. Worse, trying to use Google Chrome's "Clear Browsing Data" menu command to remove all the local storage is (1) overkill, because it deletes non-Google page local storage, and (2) ineffective, because once the storage is corrupt, Google Chrome doesn't know how to delete it either. Fortunately, it's all stored in obviously named files in your home directory; this command deletes the files directly, after which restarting Google Chrome will let you reinstall Gmail Offline correctly.

  • If you set noclobber to on, bash won't allow redirection to overwrite existing files . set -o noclobber command turn the option on (default it s off ) . You can still append information but not overwrite the file .to turn it back off use : $ set +o noclobber . I use it because i overwrite a file by accident , after thought , content of the file was very important , creating a one more file mean nothing for my hard disk (we are not anymore on the 64 k memory time) , but content of file is far much important . What we call exeprience :( Show Sample Output
