Tip of the Week

apropos -s 1 “” | shuf -n 1

Full Message:

“Hello everyone! love the show. Been a Linux user for a little bit now and I get lots of tips and tricks from you guys. I wanted to share a trick I recently started using to learn commands/tools/stuff. There are so many commands and functions that I would feel overwhelmed learning about them. I came across the apropos command using the -s 1 “” when using that options you will see tons of output and their definitions. This is where your anxiety starts. BUT if you pipe that into the shuf command followed by -n 1 it will output one random command with the brief definition. The full command would be apropos -s 1 “” | shuf -n 1 I then put this in my bashrc start up so when I log into the system it will output one of those random commands. I will then take that one output and make it my mission to know everything I can about it by the end of the day. (if its something I already know, I will run the command until I see something new) Hope someone finds this helpful. Keep marching!”

  1. Confused about the apropos parameters. The one’s given in the program notes don’t work. But this seems to: apropos -s 1 ‘’ | shuf -n 1

    OK, so you need the double quotes when adding the command to your .bashrc. But as a command line alone, you have to use single quotes.
