-v make output verbose.
-vv make output much more verbose.
-n don't generate headers.
-q make output more quiet.
-c check pkgs with gpg and md5 checksums - cannot be used with -n.

yum - Yellowdog Updater Modified shell
yum shell [filename]
yum includes an interactive shell for conducting multiple commands or sets of commands during a single execution of yum. These commands can
be issued manually or passed to yum from a file. The commands are much the same as the normal yum command line options. See here yum(8) for
that information. There are a few additional commands documented below.
args: debuglevel, errorlevel, obsoletes, gpgcheck, assumeyes, exclude
If no value is given it prints the current value.
If value is given it sets that value.
list: lists repositories and their status
enable: enable repositories. option = repository id
disable: disable repositories. option = repository id
list: lists the contents of the transaction
reset: reset (zero-out) the transaction
solve: run the dependency solver on the transaction
run: run the transaction
The following are examples of using the yum shell.
list available packagename*
groupinfo 'Some Group'
That will list available packages matching the glob 'packagename*'. It will return information on the group 'Some Group' It will
then queue the following commands into the transaction: install foo, remove bar, update baz. Then the 'run' command will resolve
dependencies for the transaction commands and run the transaction.
See the Authors file included with this program.
There of course aren't any bugs, but if you find any, they should be sent to the mailing list: email@example.com or filed in bugzilla.
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:
