I noticed the use of different editors in the courses, ie, vim, gedit, nano. Are there advantages of one over another? Personally I prefer gedit as it is more intuitive to use.
Also, I noticed the use of different methods to edit bashrc, eg …
sudo echo “export courseRoot=/home/$USER/cousreRoot” >> ~/.bashrc
or edit directly:
export PATH="(paste path here)":$PATH
export apm=(paste path here without quotes)
Why with quotes or without? It seems like the “sudo echo” method is the easiest, so why not always use that?
Just trying to gain a little insight into using linux. Again thanks for the great content and feedback !
