The Basic Terminal
« le: 25 mars 2013 à 04:16:03 »
You old school Linux users will hate me for asking this but has anyone made or heard of a terminal app that uses basic word commands like copy, paste, move and back? I know that this would take longer to do things but it would be a great terminal for nebies. Just because the old ways is how it has always been done does not make it the correct way for everyone. 8)

............FLAME ON!............

Many of the commands in terminal are in fact abbreviations of commonly used terms.  Examples are "ls" for "list", "cp" for "copy", "mv" for "move" and "cd" for "change directory".  With those basic commands you can navigate through the system, look at folder (directory) contents and move them around.  To save a lot of typing you also have autocomplete by hitting the "tab" key - just like a lot of word processors have.  Just think of it as the Readers Digest version of doing things - the shortened and abridged version! 
What can go wrong !!

In your terminal, have a look at "man alias", and on the web, at this page:

O' I agree with you, it was the same way in DOS back in my day. I just remember thinking, "why can't  I just put in words" to do this.

(Sigh) I am just getting old I think......

Hi,

As I mentioned above, by adding aliases in your ~/.bashrc, you can. You can even choose your own words.
(why when I write something I sometimes feel it as if I didn't talk at all?  :? )

Isn't the terminal for running short bash scripts, core utilities,
and initiating program commands where a little useful feedback
would be produced ?

Try this, save as dff in /usr/bin


df -T -BM

Save as dff, make executable.

df -T -BM

Run in terminal.

You could set that as an alias. Add this as the last line in ~/.bashrc.

alias df="df -T -BM"
You can try it out first by entering the same line in a terminal emulator, then entering just df.

Midnight Commander is a very useful tool. I use it before remastering.
