  • How to go back to a previous directory in Bash

    Would there be a way to actually go back to a previous directory that we were using in Bash, without using pushd/popd? We're hoping for something like "back" so it returns us back to the directory that we were previously in.

  • Linux: Redirecting output to a file

    I understand in Linux that to redirect the output from a screen to one of my files, I can use either the > or tee. But I can't figure out why the output is actually still the output to the screen (and now written to the file). Would there be a way to redirect the output just to the file?

  • Determine the script file name in a Bash script

    Would there be a way to determine name of a Bash script that's actually inside the script itself. Here's an example: If my script is in the file "runme.sh", then how would I make it display as "You are running runme.sh" message (without any hardcoding)?

  • Obtaining an elapsed-time sorted list of Unix processes from a shell

    I would like to obtain a sorted list of processes, sorted by elapsed time. I am aware of ps -o etime etc, but how exactly do i sort by a field with format [[dd]:[hh]]mm:ss ? Or is there a different way altogether to ask the OS to return a sorted list of processes, sorted by elapsed time? Thanks.
