Carets via Lifehacker…

Jul 16, 2007

Use the caret (^) to manage file versions<br/> What is wrong with this picture?<br/> Here is what it looks like on my system:

foo^1
foo^10
foo^11
...
foo^2
foo^20
foo^21
...
foo^3
...

YUCK!<br/> Instead, try pre-pending zeros after the carets… but stay consistent.<br/> foo^001, foo^002, …, foo^010, …, foo^020, …<br/> -m
