no sooner did you post "Cannot wait for the next stones on the road of your next adventure" than I have to take you at your word. So sorry about that.
I don´t know whether I might have done something stupid (at least I hope not) out of sheer clumsiness.
What I did was the following:
I wanted to look for the search word “pass” in a dedicated
trans.profile I set up for the use of translate-shell (GitHub - soimort/translate-shell: Command-line translator using Google Translate, Bing Translator, Yandex.Translate, etc.
and Translate Shell ) with
The command I wanted to use was:
cat /home/rosika/.config/firejail/trans.profile | grep pass .
However I was typing too quickly and forgot to enter “grep”. So the command I actually entered was:
cat /home/rosika/.config/firejail/trans.profile | pass .
In reaction to that I got a new line in the terminal but apparently no prompt.
I didn´t enter anything and wanted to close the terminal with “CTRL+C” which didn´t have any effect.
So I tried it with “CTRL+D”. That didn´t shutdown whatever process was triggered either.
Yet I doubt that any process was triggered at all …
… because this stupidity of mine didn´t result in an entry in fish_history.
I finally managed to close the window by hitting the “X” in the upper right corner of the terminal window.
Hmm, having become a little scared of what I did I looked up what the command “pass” was all about and found out:
whatis pass pass (1) - stores, retrieves, generates, and synchronizes passwords securely
So sorry to bother you again @Akito (really, I am ) but might I be bold enough to ask you what you think about the whole matter
I hope I haven´t done anything too dumb.
At least I couldn´t find anything with respect to “pass” with
Many thanks in advance and many greetings.
