From the Novell Cool Solution page:
Many times I prefer to just work from the shell. I wrote some functions for my .bashrc file that I thought I would share.

The .bashrc file is a great place to put functions if your using them regularly. Alternatively, you could alias the programs but since they are small, I don’t mind putting them in the .bashrc file just to keep it simple.

Here are a few of the functions I wrote.
weather ()
stock ()
translate ()
define ()

    I use fish – not bash. I am going to rewrite the ‘define’ function for fish. That is the only function i will use in this list.
