re: What Are Your Favorite Command Line Hidden Gems? VIEW POST


curl -vvv is helpful for learning and experimenting with all things http related.

Not exactly a command, but favorite bad habit is running processes in the background with slow_cmd &.


The more I learn about curl, the more it blows my mind how powerful it really is.

With regards to backgrounding commands, I know about the ability, but I've never had an instance where I've thought to do it. What kind of commands do you find yourself backgrounding?


Mostly I background update commands when I first login. Definitely not a good habit but I always read the stdout.

flatpak update $
yay &
brew update &
