Comment terminal commands to find them later more easily
Published on in Miscellaneous
If you append a comment (like
# foo) to a terminal command,
you can search by the comment text when using Ctrl+R.
curl http://220.127.116.11/linux.iso # Fred's distribution of Linux
Later you can press Ctrl+R and search for e.g. "Fred" to find the command.
The example is from climagic's YouTube video Using comments in the interactive shell (3:32).
