Normal pipes in bash/zsh only redirect stdout to the target process. If you, for example want to grep the output of strace you need to also redirect stderr to the target. You can do this by strace ls |& grep open. On older versions of bash you need the less handy strace ls 2>&1 | grep open.

If a diff is hard to read because the changes are small, try `git diff --word-diff`. While the default diffing algorithm works line wise, this will show you changes within a line.

To get the hosts ip address, I used to use 'ip addr' – but the output is noisy and the address hard to spot. Use 'hostname -i' instead, to get exactly what you need.
