you can use a semicolon ";" to separate commands. this allows you to run multiple commands in a single string. remember if you need the output of one command to be the input of another to use a pipe "|".

$ uncompress file; wc -l path/file; etc

ls -l | awk '{ if( substr($0, 2, 1) == "r" ) { print } }'
