I like to get an output on the screen of the who command, buth with the current date on the first line (without the use of a script)

Following does the job, buth I prefer one command.

$ who > who
$ date > date
$ cat date who



Try using this combination:

date; who

You can also use && to combine commands. However, anything before the && will need to return no error code before the command after && can run.

date && who

In the latter example, date failed for some reason, who would never run.
