optic

Refresh yourself on what those elusive options do, hassle free!

Example

View the descriptions of -xcf and --update in the given order:

optic tar xcf update

Output:

-x, --extract, --get
-extract files from an archive

-c, --create
create a new archive

-f, --file ARCHIVE
use archive file or device ARCHIVE

-u, --update
only append files newer than copy in archive

Installing

optic is installed using pip for Python 3. By default your local pip tool may be linked to Python 2. To be safe run the following command:

sudo pip3 install optic

If the pip3 command is not found install the package with:

sudo apt-get install python3-pip

Note that the above command will only work on Debian-based systems.

Contributing

Contributions are very welcome! Right now the project needs more definitions pages. And I mean a lot more. Follow the format of the existing definitions pages for your favorite command(s), submit a pull request, and your hard work will be added to the project. Cheers!
