in reply to The problem with one-liners...

$ perl -e'print "Just Another Perl One-Liner\n"' Just Another Perl One-Liner $ history -n -1 | head -1 >> ~/oneliners.txt
Or something like that ;^) ...I even
alias keep='history -n -1 | head -1 >> ~/oneliners.txt'
In my .kshrc...that makes it pretty slick

    I was just about to suggest the above solution and then decieded to read all the posts... and there it was. My 'keep' is very similar: Once I get a perl one-liner that works how I wanted it to, I add it to my oneliners file. The only difference being that my 'keep' lets me type things like:
    machine> perl -le 'print map{(a..z)[rand 26]} 0..rand 10' kjfgsdkjg machine> keep Generate a random word
    which adds the following to my oneliners file:
    # Generate a random word perl -le 'print map{(a..z)[rand 26]} 0..rand 10'
    I'm on a different machine here so when I get to the right machine, I'll stick the keep command on my scratchpad.

    Thanks to jmcnamara for the one-liner. I don't have my list with me. His is at Re: The problem with one-liners...

      I like that idea. I'll adapt that, and add a time stamp as well.

[Corion]: marto: Yeah - their mother picked all three of them up at the kindergarden to then go to the hospital, and all three of them were well behaved, and all also were quite obedient when they came home, so they recognized the situation
[Corion]: Nice to see that the kids have some understanding of important things that happen and the appropriate behaviour :)
[marto]: at times mine surprise me with this behavior :)
[Corion]: I mean, in a way it would be nicer+easier if they always where that obedient, but it's comforting to see that they are when it matters, at least for now ;)
