One of the most common mistake is typing sl instead of ls command. I actually set an alias i.e. alias sl=ls; but then you may miss out the steam train with whistle.
sl is a joke software or classic UNIX game. It is a steam locomotive runs across your screen if you type “sl” (Steam Locomotive) instead of “ls” by mistake. sl is a highly advanced animation program for curing your bad habit of mistyping.
Type the following apt-get command/apt command on a Debian / Ubuntu Linux:
$ sudo apt-get install sl
Type the following yum command on a CentOS/RHEL (first enable EPEL repo on a RHEL/CentOS version 6 or version 7 of CentOS/RHEL):
$ sudo yum install sl
Type the following dnf command on a Fedora Linux:
$ sudo dnf install sl
Type the following brew command on a macOS Unix desktop:
$ brew install sl
Type the following pkg_add command on a OpenBSD:
# pkg_add -v sl
Type the following pkg command on a FreeBSD:
# pkg_add -v sl
Okay, just mistyped ls command as sl:
It also supports the following options:
- -a : An accident seems to happen. You’ll feel pity for people who cry for help.
- -l : shows little one.
- -F : It flies.
- -e : Allow interrupt by Ctrl+C.
