Useful stuff for Dotfiles

More-up-to-date stuff is on >>github.


Quickly grab:

.bash_profile (and friends)

# A standard-sh prompt
export PS1="[u@h W]# "
# Use bash_completion if installed.
if [ -f /etc/bash_completion ]; then
    . /etc/bash_completion
# set 'ls' colors
if [ -f /etc/DIR_COLORS ]; then
    eval `dircolors --sh /etc/DIR_COLORS`
    alias ls="/bin/ls -F --color=auto"
# Display alias
disp () {
        if [ $# == 1 ]; then
                export DISPLAY
        /bin/echo $DISPLAY
alias nodisp="export DISPLAY="
# Terminal
alias vt100='export TERM=vt100'
# Dig
alias digs='dig +short'
# Today, in ISO format
alias today='export TODAY=`date +%Y-%m-%d` ; echo $TODAY'
# For Suns: some suns don't like "linux" or the screen terminal types
if [ "$TERM" == "linux" ] ; then
        export TERM=vt100
if [ "$TERM" == "screen-w" ] ; then
        export TERM=vt100
if [ "$TERM" == "screen" ] ; then
        export TERM=vt100

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
