Linux Tutorial Series – 60 – Recap

Here is the video version, if you prefer it:

A flashback – we talked about:

Redirecting input and output:

  • ls > output.txt is an example
  • Use >> to append
  • Use &> to redirect both standard output and standard error

Other stuff we talked about:

  • Pipelines are used to redirect standard output of one command to the standard input of the other command; usage: command1 | command2
  • Shell globbing (wildcards) is used to match filenames before the command is executed
  • Brace expansions – something{else,else2,else3} (no spaces between the commas)
  • Regular expressions are used to match patterns in text; for example, a* means match the character a zero or more times

Hope you refreshed your memory!
