  • · The Terminal – I’ve been using the Unix command line since 1983 and like most software developers, the Terminal app is a permanent fixture in my Dock. Over the years I’ve learned a lot of things that make working in this environment more productive, but even old dogs like me are constantly learning new tricks.

    As much as I love them, these long “trick lists” on Stack Overflow have a problem: they’re poorly organized with little narrative describing why you’d want to use a technique. This long homage to the command line is my attempt to remedy that situation.

    Note: I originally learned the shell using the newfangled csh (which was a huge improvement over the original sh.) When I first started using Mac OS X, I tweaked it to use tcsh because that’s what I knew and loved. Over time, I gave up using these tweaks and started using the default shell: bash. The following examples assume that you’re doing the same.
