Raniere Silva has written a short post about a trick he found (via Kate Hertweck) for splitting the terminal window when teaching the shell so that recent commands stay visible at the top. It's a clever idea; we would welcome feedback from other instructors who have tried it or similar things. And if you have tricks of your own that you'd like to share, please let us know—we'd be happy to feature them here.
