List Your Favourite CLI Programs & Utilities

List your favourite CLI programs. :)

Even though I'm in GNOME most of the time, I still use irssi, and MOC, nano. I've started to use grep a lot more than I have been. For the longest time, I could never use the darn thing, but, I guess as time serves you get accustomed to what is used. I also use Find, and Locate.

That's pretty much it, or at least all I can think of right now.

  • masinickmasinick Posts: 20
    Looking at my recent command history, I use cd, ls, df, ceni, clear, ps, top, htop, rm, sux, sudo, mv, apt-get, and more frequently, and lately, since I've been doing some simple editing, often of the clipboard or just a few minor changes variety, I've been using the small, fast GUI editor Leafpad. I use both Vim and GNU Emacs when I am doing involved work, depending on the nature of that work.

    I guess my favorite would have to be

    kill

    hehe

    im big on using everything on the command line. one thing I hate is when you come into a shop that's say, running webservers and the webservers have X installed and running on them without having a monitor or keyboard there too. idiotic waste of resources.

    grep
    svn
    ping
    dig
    ****sudo****
    dmesg
    tail
    cat
    etc, etc etc etc
