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.
