I may add new things in the future, as they come for me, if I find new
features useful.
### How to repeat a command n time ###
repeat 5 curl http://localhost/counter_add.php
### How to expand recursively ###
If you want to find every file ending by .lisp in the folder and
subfolder you can use the following syntax. Using ****** inside a
pattern while do a recursive globbing.
ls **/*.lisp
### Work with temp files ###
If you want to work on some command outputs without having to manage
temporary files, zsh can do it for you with the following syntax:
**=(command that produces stdout)**.
In the example we will use emacs to open the list of the files in our
personal folder.
emacs =(find ~ -type f)
This syntax will produce a temp file that will be removed when emacs
exits.
### My ~/.zshrc ###
here is my ~/.zshrc, very simple (I didn't pasted the aliases I have),
I have a 1000 lines history that skips duplicates.
HISTFILE=~/.histfile
HISTSIZE=1000
SAVEHIST=1000
setopt hist_ignore_all_dups
setopt appendhistory
bindkey -e
zstyle :compinstall filename '/home/solene/.zshrc'
autoload -Uz compinit
compinit
