comment How can I rename/move a file by simply “editing” its path in a shell?
See my comment to @baochan's answer. This is all good as long as it does not take a lot of TAB's to complete the name (non-uniqueness or subdirectories). My question was how to avoid repeating the name at all.

Some very good ideas indeed.

Yes, that is what I was doing so far as well. My main problem with this is that it is really inconvenient if you have to access a file in TAB some TAB subdirectory twice. I sometimes solved it by highlighting the first name and using the middle-mouse-button-paste for the second. I simply don't like doing things twice :).

Doesn't seem to work with zsh (not a bash user), but still nice to have a bash solution!

comment In bash, how can I rename a file without repeating the path?
Significant drawback: You cannot use tab-completion for old_filename.txt.

+1 for a good solution on Windows/Mac (?); -1 for not briefing the Unix/Linux community that there isn't a native version.

comment Iperf tests in reverse direction
I just made a similar observation: In a similar setup, iperf -c ... is much faster for me compared to iperf -r -c .... I have no explanation for this behavior either.

...but as soon as there are multiple mex in the search path, the problem is not that trivial (nice example)

comment How can I visualize the file system usage on Windows?
It's a bit unfortunate that this answer mentions a stand-alone version and provides a link that leads to a website that apparently does not contain any stand-alone version. To prevent others searching for the stand-alone version as long as I did: simply google WinDirStats portable. Update: Just realized that this "portable" version also requires installation. I give up: I can't find a stand-alone version...
