( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I did something similar to this, but with a shell script. I created a directory 'ssh' in my home dir, with a script, which I symlink to the short names of the servers I wish to attach to. I didn't care about shortname->longname expansion because tab completion was fast enough (for boxes that didn't end in one of the local domains anyhow).

#!/bin/bash if [ "$1" == "" ]; then ssh $1@$0 else ssh $0 fi

So, when I want to connect to with the username 'radmat', I can just:

$ ~/ssh/ radmat

When I can't remember usernames, I make an entry in ~/.ssh/config to remember it for me. Hostnames are expanded by tab completion, and this saves me a ton of time.

Perl equivalent, if you want:

#!/usr/bin/perl if (!defined $ARGV[0] || $ARGV[0] eq '') { exec('ssh',$0) } else { exec('ssh',"$ARGV[0]\@$0") }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
