Command lines for the weirdest things

Just a collection of command line tweaks. These work on Linux, probably mostly on MacOS too (and who knows, with things for Windows probably). (content irrelevant, just adding an image) Basics General command-line tips Todo: find some other sources Pipe tricks: | more - show output paginated (use space to get to next page) | less - similar to more, but with scroll up/down | sort - sort the output lines alphabetically | uniq - only unique lines (needs β€œsort” first) | uniq -c - only unique lines + include the number of times each line was found (needs sort first) | sort -nr - sort numerically (β€œn”) and reverse order (β€œr”, highest number first) | wc -l - count number of lines Searching for things (more grep options)
