comment Is there a way to tell sudo to set my username as owner for the files created instead of root?
@BelminFernandez: In order to accommodate your second preference: sudo install -o "$USER" /etc/foo.txt ~/foo.txt

comment Is there a word which means whatever you want it to mean? Or has no meaning?
Do you mean "baz" instead of "faz"? I've never seen the latter. By the way, continuing the list: "qux", "quux", etc.

comment Bash command that prints a message on stderr
This won't work for echoerr foo 2> test-err.txt since the alias is expanded then both redirections are set up at the same time and the second one doesn't know the first one has been set up yet. Aliases should be avoided in scripts - use functions instead.

comment Bash command that prints a message on stderr
@DavidC.Rankin: I think that's a good idea. However, as it stands, it outputs a newline when no arguments are present in the same way that echo does.

comment Linux - How do I create a crontab thru a script
@MarkBerry: Sorry about that. In a pipe, a hyphen must be used to indicate that input is from stdin. I'll correct my answer.

comment How can I search within the output buffer of a tmux shell?
@DanielQue: Take a look at the tmux man page and search for "mode-keys" and "status-keys". Those are sub-commands that allow you to set the binding style. Alternately, it might be simpler to set an environment variable (EDITOR or VISUAL) to the style you want before starting tmux.
