comment Bash - is there a way to search for a string (or pattern) in your current directory?
To match files its usually better to use -type f to, possibly in combination with -name if you want to make deeper selection based on the filename itself. But usually -type f is enough for these needs.

-r and -R are the same thing to grep though.

comment using John the Ripper to recover RAR password
I tried this with a dummy password protected rar file, it matched the 25th password and it worked just fine. Use rar and not unrar to be sure, and type =exactly= as above, don't change rar for unrar, etc. Don't change variable names or anything.

comment What are the common Control combinations in a terminal setting
Your terminals stop and start features are usually controlled by C-s and C-q, but its not very common (correct me if I am wrong) that people use this at all since its way easier to pipe into less, more or other processing tools. I'd safely say that you can rebind C-q without much hazzle. In my shells I always change the stty settings for start and stop to avoid pausing output unintentionally, I do this with: stty start '' stop '' in my bash startup scripts.
