    One of my fav's Command-line Fu < The best UNIX commands on the web

    Notice to the novice, seems that some of the commands are a little dangerous but the author is trying to cleaup and keep an eye out.

    All in all a nice little site, and script.

    I always think it's funny that the linux command for delete is "RM". I chuckle every time I use it...

    I tried typing "RM" into the RM website once but nothing happened... it's still there.

    It was a quip about RM (Research Machines) and rm the linux command for remove implying the latter should remove the former.

    I suppose in the same breath it's the playing of a windows installation cd backwards plays satanic ritual music but playing it forward installs windows....

    I'll get my coat.

    Anything like that for OS X Leopards terminal ?

    I know there are man pages - maybe a link to apples man pages on the web instead of using the man pages in terminal.

    OS X uses the same bash shell as most linux distro's. In fact I think the majority of *nix's out there default to bash these days.

    Heres a list of bash commands that'll work on all these Unices...

    bash commands - Linux MAN Pages

    beyond that it depends what extra programs have bin installed into the /bin, /sbin, /usr/bin or /usr/sbin directories as to what will work. Never really been bothered to check it out but I'd have thought 99% of the more comon/most important commands/programs you'll find on a Linux terminal session will work in an OS X terminal session. If not there is alway the Fink project so you can install whatever you need that is missing.

    Nah, I want XKCD's cheat t-shirt.

    (I'd have the regular expression reference skirt, too, but it wouldn't suit me )

    The problem is that Unix is case sensitive; you needed to type "rm" on the RM web site :-)

    Makes sense... although I just tried it and it still doesn't work.

    Shall I log a call with them?
