I always forget how simple it is to show the definition of bash function or alias (via: Stack Overflow)

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/02/17

I always facepalm myself after looking up this: [Wayback] Can bash show a function’s definition? – Stack Overflow (thanks [Wayback] Benjamin Bannier!):

Use type. If foobar is e.g. defined in your ~/.profile:

$ type foobar
foobar is a function
foobar {
    echo "I'm foobar"
}

type will also expand aliases, which is a nice bonus :) – [Wayback] Esdras Lopez

File, extensions and directories to ignore in version control

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/02/17

I will try to keep this table up-to-date.

Note that in some tooling, names are case sensitive.

*.identcache Extension Delphi
*.local Extension Delphi
*bin Extension
*obj Extension
RECYCLER Directory Windows
Bin Directory
*.user Extension Visual Studio/Delphi
*.suo Extension Visual Studio
*.dcu Extension Delphi
__history Directory Delphi
ModelSupport_* File Delphi
*.rsm Extension Delphi
thumbs.db File Windows stored in each directory that contains thumbnails on Windows systems
thumbcache_256.db File Windows stored in each directory that contains thumbnails on Windows systems
*.bak Extension
*.~* Extension pattern Delphi
__recovery Directory Delphi
*.tvsconfig Extension Delphi
*.o Extension
*.lo Extension
*.la Extension
*.al Extension
.libs
*.so Extension
*.so.[0-9]* Extension pattern
*.a Extension
*.pyc Extension Python
*.pyo Extension Python
*.rej Extension Mercurial [WayBack] Rejected patches
*~
#*#
.#* Extension pattern
.*.swp Extension
.DS_Store File MacOS stores custom attributes of its containing folder
desktop.ini File Windows determines how a directory is displayed by Windows, such as the icon used by that directory
*.chw Extension HTML Help Compiled HTML Help general index

Based on at least these earlier blog posts, and a lot of fiddling around:

 

Hopefully, some day, I will find time to compare these against gitignore templates, for instance via:

and against [WayBack] svn – How do I configure the TortoiseSVN ‘Global ignore pattern’ properly? – Stack Overflow.
