systemctl is nice, but has some tedious aspects if you run your shells in emacs, as i do. you can do export PAGER= this is nice, since emacs is a much better pager than more or less. also, by default systemctl elipsifies output, which i prefer emacs to handle. -l helps, but how do i avoid always typing it?
ive been using a sctl alias in eshell, and its nice:
1alias sctl sudo systemctl --no-pager $*
so, I get sudo and no pager.
