&& and ; in terminal

March 6, 2012

With this line:

command1 && command2

command2 will be executed if (and only if) command1 returns exit status zero, whereas in this line:

command1 ; command2

both command1 and command2 will be executed regardless. The semicolon allows you to type many commands on one line.
