Now that we’ve covered some basic shell commands, let’s shift focus a little and talk about some of the features that bind those commands together into a useful working environment. In this guide, we’ll cover:
standard input and output
combining commands with pipes
redirecting output to and from files
standard error and exit codes
While these may sound like dry topics, it’s here that the command line begins to come into its own as a tool and environment for solving problems. Pull up a terminal and read on!
As ever, feedback on these would be much appreciated.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
