OK aragon, it does work. What I copied must have had the keycodes wrong or something.

This doesn't work though:
set completion-ignore-case on

but i will do 2 things:
1. try to optimize (maybe landscape would help)
2. post the base wp-file as flash suggested


I converted the pdf to a 2 page document for OO .... it's so much easier to read now.

Subject description: Confusing for new users
 

I really hate to nitpick as I know how much work is involved in producing and proof-reading technical documentation.

However, wildcards added to "dangerous" commands isn't the best idea!

Could you perhaps write "Note 1" in tiny letters or something?

I have printed this off and will be laminating it this evening.

Thanks.

A doubling is definitely in order; the world awaits the 2 paged version. Plus, that way we can sandwich the two pages back to back and laminate to make a nice 2 page computer-side Pupster reference.

It is a super idea....and if it were two-sided, the font size might be increased to allow folks with senior eye sight to enjoy it.

Thom


I just had an idea on the subject:

If I convert it to bare bones HTML and you open it with your browser, the default font size will control the size of the text and the browser will reformat it to make it fit. Paragraphs will word wrap etc. You can then print it with the font size that works best for you.

I'll come back sometime next week and see if anyone thinks I should bother.

Using Opera it's 2 pages with a spill-over onto a third page.

The HTML version seems to do it right. It is nice and compact and the web browsers I checked it on liked it just fine. Changing the font size up and down scaled everything as it should.

I tried several browsers that are known to comply with the standards and they all did the same basic stuff.

There are, however, have a few errors.

Right near line 10 and near 401 there should be a <P> and </P> you have text outside of a paragraph.

The "bgcolor" thing is going away. Styles will be the standard soon. For now, I wouldn't bother with that though.

There`s no way to jump to a command that I know of...


The old Unix command was "!" followed by a letter or 2 of the command you wanted to recall.

So you've entered a bunch of commands, and want to recall a command:

#!ru

goes back in your history and finds:

#runthisverylongcommandsoIdon'thavetorecallthedamnthing

And the command:

#history

will show you a list of your command history

This can then recall a command by (say #285 was "#runthisverylongcommandsoIdon'thavetorecallthedamnthing")

#!285

Which will recall the command (#285):

#runthisverylongcommandsoIdon'thavetorecallthedamnthing

Most people set up an alias file, and alias "h" to history. Keep in mind that these numbers will roll off (change)...

I don't recall what the recall history length is (it might be the last 1000 commands), but the file where the history is stored is in /root/.history

One could also "#grep -i damnthing .history" to display the command above, that is stored inside the .history file.
