KSH bookmark utility

Posted on 2021-01-05 21:38:00 by Vincent in OpenBSD

Following my last post I had an interesting conversation about [Qterminal](https://github.com/lxqt/qterminal): "a lightweight Qt terminal emulator based on QTermWidget". The discussion was about the "lightweight" of a terminal and the comparison against xterm. But this is not the most interesting part of the discussion.

This is a very common problem between python package you have installed via pkg_add and the one you have installed via "pip install".

Why [df](https://man.opensd.org/df) shows a full filesystem ? and why no big files identified by [ls](https://man.openbsd.org/ls), neither by [du](https://man.openbsd.org/du) ?
