comment What are the steps of this command using ; || and &&
@R0tten && and || are left-associative binary operators with equal precedence. The ; is not an operator at all but merely a simple separator, like a newline, and as such has the lowest "precedence". That should be enough to clear up any confusions you have.

@ColeJohnson It's not the best tool for the job. grep matches lines of text, but not all filenames are guaranteed to be single lines of text.

comment Need to Split the output in Row & Column
@user43791 You are right. I discovered the same and deleted my prior erroneous comment but it turns out you saw it anyways. After reviewing the awk grammar, I learned that the print statements do accept parentheses after all so carry on as you were.

comment How can I delete a file named “>”?
It's probably worth pointing out that find is not like rm because it is recursive and will delete every file named rm under your current directory tree no matter how deep.

.profile is only read for login shells. You should define aliases in .bashrc not .profile.

It should, but why don't you just try it and see?
