How to create custom commands in Unix/Linux?
Can anyone guide me to create custom commands in Unix/Linux.
Create a bash script in your /usr/bin folder, it should look something like this
#!/bin/bash Whatever combination of commands you want to run when you type this thing.
Its really that easy.
Just name the bash script what you want to type in to the terminal, and make it excecutable:
chmod +x filenameand you're good to go!
Could you modify this to be a step-by-step guide, including every necessary step? I am still unsure how to make my own custom command.
@AndersMB, you need to **read a book**. There are many good ones, even available for free. Start with "The Linux Command Line".
/usr/bin folder is intended for the Linux distributor. ~/bin is the right place to put personal stuff and /usr/local/bin is for custom software intended for everyone on the system to use. One would like to keep a degree of logical separation / easy navigation over their own files.
