Unix tricks you should be using

February 17, 2014 — Carlos Fenollosa

Some time ago I started a compilation of unix tricks regarding bash completion, obscure tools and some ssh magic.

The list grew bit by bit until it was posted to Hacker News and quickly exploded. It got about 200k visits the first day and has been accessed and linked frequently since then.

I still maintain it, and I'd like to share it again, as the first post of this blog's new era. I have been tempted to re-write it as a longer blog post many times, but I believe that many people were attracted to the simplicity of the original text file.
