Start all of your commands with a comma  ↦

Brandon Rhodes’s solution to conflicts between his ~/bin scripts and system binaries: the humble comma

I heartily recommend this technique to anyone with their own ~/bin/ directory who wants their command names kept clean, tidy, and completely orthogonal to any commands that the future might bring to your system. The approach has worked for me for something like a decade, so you should find it immensely robust. And, finally, it’s just plain fun.
