Can anyone explain searching through the command history with Ctrl-R? I tried in in cygwin rxvt last night, and it seems you type in the first part of a command, press Ctrl-R, and then press space to search backwards through the history... but now that I try it in Puppy it only seems to find the most recent command, and won't search any further back...

am using it the other way round, first Ctrl+R then type part of the command. the limitation with the most recent command is here also.

I later found out:
- press Ctrl-R with an empty command line
- type part of the command
- press Ctrl-R again to go to the previous match.
This is very useful; I use it constantly.

This is great! I'm trying to learn to use the command line more, but so many of the things I find online or in books work in other distros, but not Puppy. If I see "Bad command or file name" one more time, I'll go postal, LOL!

Thank you for this--the HTML version is especially helpful, as it's the easiest to read, IMHO at least.

This is a fantastic idea, aragon. I just wanted to add my thanks.

Ah, and thanks to https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Bash I finally know how to make Ctrl-S work to go forwards: run `stty -ixon`, which disables "job control". You can add it in your .bashrc or whatever.

Try the tab key. It shows/expands matching commands or filenames (if not unique).

PostPosted: Mon 30 Jan 2012, 08:39    Post_subject: find multiple copies of a program in different paths
Sub_title: e.g. /usr/bin and /usr/local/bin
 

Tip:
`which` only tells you about the copy of a program that will actually run if you call it by name (without the full path).
If you need to check whether you have multiple copies of a program in different paths (e.g. /usr/bin and /usr/local/bin), run this
Code:
 type -a program-name

It will also tell you about shell built-ins and aliases, which can otherwise cause confusion.

I've only looked at the HTML version:

Compact, useful - there were a couple of things in there that I'd forgotten; and easy to resize/reflow for those who need it.

You might want to check 'touch' btw.

It would be fairly east to semi-automate this with a db app so that appropriate versions could be created for different distro's.

I understand this is still a WIP but a few class declarations and stylesheets would greatly simplify the production of formatted-to-purpose variants.

Keep up the good work.

Cheerio,

Sub_title: un professeur ne pourrait-il pas nous faire une synthèse ?
 

un professeur ne pourrait-il pas nous faire une synthèse ?
Je suis en train de me faire mon manuel d'aide, aujourd'hui j'ai appris à targizer.
Les informations sont parfois disparates, noyées dans des jugements, en anglais, ou autre chose encore.
Les tutos de Toutou pourraient être amendés (?) des nouveautés ou découvertes.
Is there a teacher speaking french to do that ?

I have this file in my user book. very useful to remember syntax.
awful syntax. and furthermore english awful computing syntax !
Last user manual done was for puppy 4.3.1, wasn't it ? Things have changed a lot. Or better news things have appeared.
Could even somebody translate in Puppy user's manuals from other distros, with correct syntax, obviously ? Great Job !
