little linux helpers (2)

May 23, 2012 — Leave a comment

as I frequently use the oracle documentation I looked for a quick way to search without clicking around too much. as I am on linux it was quite easy:

echo "tahiti() {
  firefox http://www.oracle.com/pls/db112/search?remark=quick_search\&word=$1 &
}
alias th='tahiti'" >> ~/.bashrc

that’s it ( remember to source the file or to logout/login before this works ). now I am able to search from the command line:

th dbms_stats

of course you can do the same if you use cygwin on windows. happy searching…

ps: thanks to chinmaykamat’s post, which gave me the hint …
