comment Using find and aspell together
That works, but for pedagogic purposes is it possible to do it with find without spawning a new xterm?

comment A command that gives username@hostname:pwd
@Rob Thanks, I understand now, but why use $PWD over $(pwd), shouldn't the output always be the same? Is one better than the other or is this just personal preference?

comment A command that gives username@hostname:pwd
That works, thank you. Can you explain why the command PWD is in caps but hostname and whoami are not? I'm not sure I understand the distinction and I think it might be important.

comment How do I let bash autocomplete wildcards?
That's it! Thank you very much. Now that I know where to look (man page ref is extremely useful) I've found a similar answer on SuperUser superuser.com/questions/215950/…

comment How do I let bash autocomplete wildcards?
That's strange, why would such a simple thing change from version to version? Any ideas on how to enable it or is it built-in at compile time?
