comment pgrep and pkill alternatives on mac os x?
+1. This should be the accepted answer, really.

comment Would it be possible to jump between prev/next command prompts?
Thanks for the tip, will try this if I start using Emacs. (I'm more into Vim these days. If there's a ditto technique for Vim like the one you described above, I'd be happy to hear it.)

comment Motd doesn't show up
An empty .hushlogin file in your ~ dir will hide any motd and the message I mentioned in my prev. comment above.

For perfection, moving my answer to its proper place in the thread (to its own post instead of question edit).

comment Motd doesn't show up
Yes, that may be the case with my distro as well (Darwin/BSD). At there is this "Last login: Tue Dec 7 16:10:04 on ttys000" message each time I fire up a new Terminal frame.

I'd vote you up if I could, albeit my current reputation doesn't allow me to. Thanks for you interesting info. Dumb question probably, but how do you perform such navigation in Emacs' shell? This also makes me curious if it holds true in Vim as well (which is the editor I'm settled for learning), using :shell (in which case my previous dumb question also applies to Vim; how do you perform the "jump between prompts" in Vim's shell).

@xenoterracide Ah, I see. Just to confirm it's the right technique, would you redirect stderr like so: sudo make 2> make_errors.log

I think your prompt is really interesting (care to share its code in a comment field below?). Although it wasn't entirely what I was shooting for, which is to press a keyboard shortcut to jump between submitted commands (i.e. positions of former prompts in the current window).
