comment Tips for putting ~ under source control
You probably should not reference other answers like you have in your first line. Just give your answer as a stand-alone answer. It adds nothing to your answer and if that other answer gets deleted, your answer makes less sense.

comment Tips for putting ~ under source control
I'd give you my points if I could. If should be noted that this method can only be used to track files, not directories. If you want to have git track all files in a directory, you'll still need to un-ignore that directory in .gitignore. Otherwise new files in that directory will not appear as new files.

comment What does DISPLAY=:0.0 actually mean?
@Raza: The TCP port numbers to open are 6000 + display_number. For display host:0.0 that is port 6000. For display host:10.0 that is port 6010. Note that SSH X11 forwarding is done over port 22 and not X11 ports.

comment What's the appropriate way to do “mv ./* ./subdirdir/”?
If you're happy to use bash, you can turn on extglob (shopt -s extglob) and use mv ./!(subdir) subdir/

comment How can I delete a file named “>”?
Why do you suggest find(1)? The only problem here is that a shell metacharacter needs to be quoted. There are a million-and-one different programs that can remove a file, but using anything other than rm(1) is just obfuscating the answer.

This will break on files containing whitespace.
