My notes

Lesser known but extremely useful unix commands.

View files / display files

If you want to display a big, structured dataset (like a .csv), but cat is wrapping the text, use less instead.

less -S filename

If you want to scroll right or left, use ESC+) and ESC+(.

Download file from URL

If you want to download a file from a URL (typically to install from zip/tar):
wget -P examples/ www.example.com/image.png

curl -o examples/image.png www.example.com/image.png

Unix dev environment setup on a Windows machine using WSL

You need to install Ubuntu or Debian using wsl. Then configure. All steps saved in this repo. Vinod Krishnan Rocks !
