marks is a set of ksh or bash utilities that provides a mechanism for remembering long pathnames as shorter "mark" names. Marks are persistent across multiple shell invocations, and may be shared from user to user.

There has been no new development on this tool for a long time because, well, it's done. I can't think of anything else that I want it to do, and it just keeps working. But I will entertain suggestions if anyone else can think of some reasonable new functionality for it.

Installation:

mv marks /usr/local/lib
mv *.1 /usr/local/man/man1
makewhatis

Additional installation on some older UNIXes. Probably, you only need to do this if your system has a /usr/local/catman directory:

cd /usr/local/catman/man
cp -p /usr/local/man/man1/mark.1 .
mantocatman mark.1
rm mark.1

What's New in This Release:

This version copes with an alternate location of "sort" on some distributions, like Debian.
