Linux The Linux desktop has come a long, long way, but there are still times when I have to use the command line. (I am a hardcore user, after all.) But even though I'm used to typing, spending hours upon hours with my fingers at the keyboard, I still grow tired of typing the same commands over and over. To reduce that tedium, I always add aliases to my .bashrc file.

RE: rm alias

Member since:

i've aliased rm to essentially "what ???"
so I have to type the full path /bin/rm
and habitually use -iv "always"
the time it takes to type "/bin/rm -iv"
seems to prevent the hurriedly-typing
errors (rm oops I meant cp) which
otherwise could occur.
HAS WORKED for over 3 years great here
