This question already has an answer here:
I used to believe that the appropriate way of breaking the lines in a list is
command1 && \ command2
It turned out that it isn't so , one doesn't need
$ [ $(id -u) -eq 1000 ] && > echo yes yes
The same works with pipes
| the same way.
The bash man page sections on pipelining and lists didn't shed any light on this. Thus , my question is : what is the proper usage of
\ to break long lines ?
