Unix Tips & Recipes

This page is a collection of tips and tricks that I've learned over the years.  I put them here mostly for my own purposes.  I tend to learn something, figure out something, or read about something, and think "That's pretty nifty" but then not use it for six months.  By that point I've forgotten the particulars, and then have to waste hours looking through web pages, as most of these things don't seem to exist in a condensed form in any books or web pages (or maybe it's just me).
