Command-Line Recipes

You’ve learned about the raw ingredients and the tools you need to put them together. Now it’s time for some tasty recipes that put your knowledge to good use! In this chapter, I present a selection of short, easy-to-use commands and customizations you can perform in the bash shell. Many use features, functions, and programs I haven’t yet mentioned, and although I describe essentially how they work, I don’t go into detail about every new item included in the recipes. Just add these herbs and spices as directed, and enjoy the results!
