Programming :: Bash-shell-like Less Functionality In The Python Shell?

Jun 25, 2010

Is there some type of functional way to read things in the Python shell interpreter similar to less or more in the bash (and other) command line shells?



>>> import subprocess
>>> help(subprocess)
[pages of stuff to read]

I'm hoping so as I hate scrolling and love how less works with simple keystrokes for page-up/page-down/searching etc.

OpenSUSE :: Gnome Terminal: How To Get The Bash Shell

Mar 17, 2010

i've finally got a NIX environment...yipee! Installed opensuse 11.2 in a dual boot with windoze with no problem whatsoever. unfortunately, my NIX skills are sadly dated or maybe things have changed or both. in any case, i have a rather trivial problem that i have not been able to figure out.

i go to gnome terminal to get to the bash shell, no problem except when i do things like cat, less and so on. the commands do what they do then when done the last line output is "some text" and "(END)" - at the completion of the command it does not return to the bash shell. i've tried ctrl-everything, enter, escape, actually all keystrokes i can think of to get back to the bash luck. man and docs have not been helpful or i simply missed the answer (i'm a little saturated at this point).the only thing i've been able to do to solve my dilema is close the terminal an start a new instance, not elegant but works.

OpenSUSE :: Customizing A Bash Shell Prompt (PS1)?

Jul 28, 2010

I changed the default SUSE prompt setting by modifying the shell variable PS1 to display the following information:

u : the username of the current user
h : the hostname up to the first '.'
w : the current working directory, with $HOME abbreviated with a tilde

I used export command to setup a new shell prompt:

export PS1="[u@h: w]$ " To add colors to the shell prompt and make a regular user prompt blue I used the following command syntax:export PS1="e[0;34m[u@h: w]$ e[m "

General :: How To Get Bash Shell History Range

Oct 4, 2010

How can I get/filter history entries in a specific range?I have a large history file and frequently usehistory | grep somecommandNow, my memory is pretty bad and I also want to see what else I did around the time I entered the command.For now I do this:get match, say 4992 somecommand, then I do history | grep 49[0-9][0-9]this is usually good enough, but I would much rather do it more precisely, that is see commands from 4972 to 5012, that is 20 commands before and 20 after. I am wondering if there is an easier way? I suspect, a custom script is in order, but perhaps someone else has done something similar before.

Right now when they select option 3, to show the date.It loops over and over again.I have to close the terminal window to stop it because it's an infinite loop. How would I prevent this? Also quit doesn't seem to be working either.

Ubuntu :: Create Some Aliases For Bash Shell?

Jun 14, 2010

I would like to create some aliases for bash shell. On other Unix/Linux machines I have done this using the alias command like this: alias rm rm -i

When I type that into a terminal on Ubuntu, it looks like alias is not installed. I get this:

bash: alias: rm: not found
bash: alias: rm: not found
bash: alias: -i: not found

I tried adding the alias to .bashrc instead, but then I get the same error message every time I start terminal. Just for fun I tried apt-get install alias, just to see what would happen, and it installed something called libperl-alias instead, and alias still doesn't work.

General :: Bash Shell Scripting Request?

Feb 27, 2011

I am working on a simple script that should take two command line arguments, a [number] and a [name]. The first thing the script should do is check to make sure that no more and no less than two command line arguments have been entered when calling the script - an error message should be delivered if the condition is not true.

If two args have been entered, then the message 'processing "scriptname"' should appear, where scriptname is the name of the script being called. The script should then write to the screen "Hi [name]!", and should write this phrase [number] of times. For example, the command $ myscript 2 joe would produce the output: I have read the manual many times looking for examples, and I am very close by virtue of my own efforts. Further, I have searched these forums and others for good examples, which have also gotten me very close. Still my script is not completing the objective, and I am wondering if someone could point me in the right direction. Script:
