iTerm 2 kicks it's ass (not from the same developer)

@Studer - iTerm2 is about the most excellent Terminal I've ever used. (except perhaps GLTerminal ;) )

@Doug - I agree, Cocoa Emacs is a much better way to go. Even if you're a Emacs noob, you shouldn't really get a non-emacs Emacs, it defeats the purpose of learning a cross platform editor.

comment OS X Terminal equivalent of Ctrl+Left / Ctrl+Right
Esc is never a modifier, it's just going into "Escape" mode when you press it, consider it a modal way of doing things, unlike shift/ctrl/meta etc. (in the Readline scheme of things anyway.)

FYI - iTerm2 has an instant replay function, very useful for making screencasts.

Well, if it respected line-breaks it might even be useful ;) -- Try cupsfilter instead to convert to PDF, it also skips the unnecessary PS-PDF conversion.

if you tire of long pathnames like this, try locate airport - you could run it with $(locate airport | grep 'Priv')

Imgur is a much better choice than DropBox. Try this script. figbug.com/?page_id=29

I'd recommend zsh + .oh-my-zsh (find it on github) has great git completion (and for many other commands too.) - Also has a bunch of prompt themes specifically tailored to show git status in a git folder.

+1 - Didn't know about automator good to know ... I suppose ;) - (Generally I use it to run scripts from Finder, so I'm not sure if I'd ever use it the other way around.)

If you use Zsh the TAB completion enhancements will rock your world. Try zsh and .oh-my-zsh.

comment How do I get vim to work at 256 colors in iTerm?
I just installed iTerm2 this afternoon, and it's excellent, Much closer to Terminal.app in it's cleanness, but with the extra functionality of iTerm, plus a few extra features of it's own. GLTerminal is also a lot of fun, but thin on extra features ;)
