Another option is to symlink the contents of the subdirs, and place the link in the top-level dir.

comment store and execute redirection/piped command in script
Of course 'it works' with backticks. But that evaluates the expression immediately, which apparently is not what you want (although that is not at all clear from your example). The eval solution provided is the correct way to defer execution until a later date.

You don't need the third line if you use backticks.

@Andrew - Ok, so do file /etc/alternatives/vi. I expect that will tell you you are actually running vim.

I am using vi, not vim. Are you sure? vi is often aliased to vim (check with which vi and then file on that location).

comment Removing disk quotas in Scientific Linux
The problem is your root partition is too small to hold your DB. If I were you, I'd just put the DB somewhere different, like in your home area: changing mogodb data storing directory.

comment Accidental `nano SomeFile | uniq` renders the shell unresponsive
@Michael Mrozek - Well, clearly your mileage varies. On my box, with nano 2.2.2, Ctrl-Z gives me 'Use "fg" to return to nano.' and then stops the job as expected.

@MichaelMrozek - Have you tried it? The Ctrl-Z solution is effective. It works exactly as Nikos describes.

Not really sure what your question is. You could have suspended the job with Ctrl+Z, then kill %1 to get rid of it...
