Bash Tricks I Like #1

Make the terminal work for you!

This is a bash alias I find very useful and convenient. When you want to simple move up a directory, it's a pain to type cd ../...

It's much nicer to simply type ... Just put the following line in your .bashrc file: alias ..="cd ../..". I also like to create aliases for moving up multiple directories. For example, alias ...="cd ../../.." allows me to move up two directory levels by just typing .... And so on.
