manydots-magic for zsh
- manydots-magic - zle tweak for emulating
This tweek helps input ancestor directories beyond the parent (
in a handy way. You can just type triple dots to input
quadruple dots to
% .. [Hit <.>] % ../.. [Hit <.>] % ../../.. [Hit <^H>] % ../.. [Hit <^H>] % ..
As you see above, each of the
/.. parts complemented by this tweak
can be deleted by a single invocation of the
command, only if invoked right after the magic happens.
% .. [Hit </><.><.>] % ../.. [Hit <^H>] % ../.
Triple-dot is not a rarely used character sequence, and this tweak kind of "knows" when it should be expanded.
% ruby -e '(1.. [Hit <.>] % ruby -e '(1... % git log branch.. [Hit <.>] % git log branch... % git diff .. [Hit <.>] % git diff ../.. [Hit <b>] <- This may be a path... % git diff ...b [Hit <ranch>] <- Or not. % git diff ...branch
