Those are not tricks. They are just proper use of knowing the correct syntax and parameters or properties of functions and keywords.

Well thats what I mean. I just call them tricks because I have never seen a command that does it all but these are small enugh to be implanted in a real program. I save these program bits in a small file. When I need to use the command I can just copy the example I put in the file and put them into my script. Basically it helps me remember how to do stuff I haven't done in a long time.
They are called subroutines/functions or chunks of code or fragments you can reuse commonly stored in a library. There is a saying "Don't synthesize. Plagiarize!"

Well thank you for telling me the real term. :) Do you have any code chunks that are interesting?
