On the Exam Verify your understanding of the tilde (~) shortcut for the home directory. mv Syntax mv [options] source target Description Move or rename files and directories. For targets on the same filesystem (partition), moving a file doesn’t relocate the contents of the file itself. Rather, the directory entry for the target is updated with the new location. For targets on different filesystems, such a change can’t be made, so files are copied to the target location and the original sources are deleted.
The grep command would be last to execute, resulting in a complete data loss from the original file1 file because the file that replaced it was empty. To avoid this problem, simply use an intermediate file and then rename it: $ grep "stuff" file1 > file2 $ mv file2 file1 Standard input can also be redirected. The input redirection operator is <. Using a source other than the keyboard for a program’s input may seem odd at first, but since text programs don’t care about where their standard input streams originate, you can easily redirect input.
In unusual circumstances, such as on a terminal, using the meta key means pressing the Escape (Esc) key, releasing it, and then pressing the defined key. The Esc key is not a modifier, but serves to modify meta keys when an Alt-style key is unavailable. Work Effectively on the Unix Command Line 17 Study Guide 101 1.
