scare_mouse(3alleg4) Allegro manual scare_mouse(3alleg4)NAME
scare_mouse - Helper for hiding the mouse pointer before drawing. Allegro game programming library.
Helper for hiding the mouse pointer prior to a drawing operation. This will temporarily get rid of the pointer, but only if that is really
required (ie. the mouse is visible, and is displayed on the physical screen rather than some other memory surface, and it is not a hardware
or OS cursor). The previous mouse state is stored for subsequent calls to unscare_mouse().

show_mouse - Tells Allegro to display a mouse pointer on the screen.
void show_mouse(BITMAP *bmp);
Tells Allegro to display a mouse pointer on the screen. This will only work if the timer module has been installed. The mouse pointer will
be drawn onto the specified bitmap, which should normally be `screen' (see later for information about bitmaps). To hide the mouse pointer,
Warning: if you draw anything onto the screen while the pointer is visible, a mouse movement interrupt could occur in the middle of your
drawing operation. If this happens the mouse buffering and graphics drawing code will get confused and will leave 'mouse droppings' all
over the screen. To prevent this, you must make sure you turn off the mouse pointer whenever you draw onto the screen. This is not needed
if you are using a hardware cursor.
Note: you must not be showing a mouse pointer on a bitmap at the time that the bitmap is destroyed with destroy_bitmap(), e.g. call
show_mouse(NULL); before destroying the bitmap. This does not apply to `screen' since you never destroy `screen' with destroy_bitmap().

What is the point of this? Whenever I close my shell it appends to the history file without adding this. I have never seen it overwrite my history file.
# When the shell exits, append to the history file instead of overwriting it

I'm trying to delete a file with a weird name from within Terminal on a Mac.
It's a very old file (1992) with null characters in the name: ââWord FinderÂŽ Plusâ˘.
Here are some examples of what I've tried:
