Have It Your Way
Customize your account on Sandbox so that
- Have the system print a personal greeting when you log in.
- Also print the current date and time using the date command. (You may
combine this with the above to create a welcome message that includes the date.)
- Create an alias so that the history command always pipes its
result through less.
- Create an alias findcmd which lists the files in
/bin and /usr/bin and sends the
result through grep. The argument to
findcmd becomes the argument to grep.
Demonstrate it in class on the 2nd. Log in to Sandbox and run your
aliases for me.
