Every Monday, we'll show you how to do something new and simple with Apple's built-in command line application. You don't need any fancy software, or a knowledge of coding to do any of these. All you need is a keyboard to type 'em out!
Over the past few weeks, we’ve covered more than a few Terminal commands that generate a lot of on-screen text output, but as the text is "printed" to the screen, it can be difficult to read in a Terminal window, especially when multiple lines of text are involved. We’ll show you how to get around that problem by "piping" the output of Terminal commands into a text file that can be stored on your Desktop and opened in a text editor to read at a later time.
