bash – cheatsheet to choose between ; or && or || or & via Ask Ubuntu

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/02/26

Cheatsheet:

A; B    Run A and then B, regardless of success of A
A && B  Run B if A succeeded
A || B  Run B if A failed
A &     Run A in background.

Source: bash – Which one is better: using ; or && to execute multiple commands in one line? – Ask Ubuntu [WayBack]

Thanks Jack [WayBack] for the initial answer ubfan1 [WayBack] for getting the formulation right and Hatshepsut [WayBack] for making it a readable cheat-sheet.
