  • rumcho rumcho @Kevin Rowe
    This will simply give the last line
    And yes I know I can do:
    shell$ cat `locate .blah blah |tail blah`
    But that just is too much typing
    What I'm talking about is zsh loading the output lines in variable that I can just call with a few keystrokes

    BTW, this is not zsh specific. It should work anywhere.

  • rumcho rumcho Question for all the zshell gurus:
    Let's say I do:
    --
    shell$ locate file.abc
    /a/b/c/file.abc
    /xyz/file.abc
    /x/y/z/cde/file.abc
    shell$
    --
    Now that I got the prompt back, I'd like to 'cat' the last found file '/x/y/z/cde/file.abc' but I don't want to lift my hand off the keyboard, reach for the mouse, highlight the desired file and copy/paste it at the prompt. I just want to do something like:
    shell$ cat ${???magic???}
    where ${???magic???} would store the last output line of the last command I executed (i.e. the last line of the 'locate file.abc' command)
    Is there such a thing in zshell?

  • mainphrame Jeffrey Sloan, Chief Technology Officer at Mirai Consulting @martinknesl94 Well, for one, Z shell runs on unix/linux while powershell limits you to the pee cee platform. 11 months ago

  • martinknesl94 Martin Knesl @liamclarke12720 Powershell stores your history into the buffer by default. If you want to store it to a file automatically, you have to add the 'start-transcript' command to your profile. What you get with Powershell, unlike Bash/Zsh, is an object pipeline, dynamic strong type support, ability to make native extensions and to natively use libraries both written in languages like C# or F#, and finally editors like Powershell ISE or PowerGUI that both have a debugger and rich autocompletion on any object or function that is in the memory. 11 months ago
