To run multiple commands in the Linux terminal, you can use the following methods:

  1. Use a semicolon (;): Separate the commands with a semicolon (;) to run them sequentially. For example: command1 ; command2 ; command3
  2. Use double ampersands (&&): This will run the commands sequentially, but only if the previous command succeeds. For example: command1 && command2 && command3
  3. Use double vertical bars (||): This will run the commands sequentially, but only if the previous command fails. For example: command1 || command2 || command3
  4. Use parentheses (): You can enclose multiple commands within parentheses to create a subshell in which the commands will run. For example: (command1 ; command2) && command3 In this example, command1 and command2 will run first, and if they both succeed, command3 will run.


Note: You can also use line breaks to separate commands for readability, but the commands will be considered separate without any specific command chaining.

To run multiple commands in the Linux terminal, you can use these methods:

  1. Using Semicolon (;): You can separate multiple commands with semicolons to run them sequentially. For example:
1
command1 ; command2 ; command3


  1. Using Double Ampersands (&&): This method runs the commands sequentially, but only if the previous command succeeds. For example:
1
command1 && command2 && command3


  1. Using Double Vertical Bars (||): This method runs the commands sequentially, but only if the previous command fails. For example:
1
command1 || command2 || command3


  1. Using Parentheses (): You can enclose multiple commands within parentheses to create a subshell where the commands will run. For example:
1
(command1 ; command2) && command3


In this case, command1 and command2 will run first, and only if they both succeed, command3 will run.


Remember that you can also use line breaks to separate commands for readability, but the terminal will treat them as separate commands unless you use a specific command chaining method as mentioned.
