I've been having trouble expressing linux commands aloud. For example:
curl -L example.com/file.txt -o "path/to/something with spaces.txt"
I could say "curl dash big L example dot com slash file dot txt dash small o path slash to slash something with spaces dot txt in quotes", but that's understandably ambiguous. Did I mean
curl -Lexample.com/file.txt -opath/to/"something with spaces.txt"
curl -L example.com/file.txt -o path/to/somethingwithspaces."txt"
...or even this:
Obviously, the last one isn't particuarly likely, but my question remains:
If I'm, e.g., speaking to someone on the phone, what can I do to make sure the person I'm talking to types the command correctly? Are there approaches to reduce mistakes and confusion?
