Sounds like a useful book :-)

I do really like to have a reference available at times though, apropos is less useful if you can't remember what the hell your looking for !


I've never had a lot of problems alternating between BSDs or Linux Distros aside from a few -switches that differ.


Which is probably why my ~/.zshrc has non-portable aliases adopted to the current operating system, defines common (fairly portable) aliases, handles multiple Bourne-Compatible shells, and sources a ~/.shrc.local for site specifics.
