Shortcut to run current command with sudo in bash

For me, I mostly forget to add “sudo” to the command until the time I am actually supposed to run it. Also sometimes, on some systems, bash completion does not work as expected with “sudo”. With these in mind, I wanted something such that when I have completed the command, I could insert sudo in the begining of the command without much ado. So, finally this is what I came up with in my “~/.inputrc” file. Note: If you don’t have this file, then simply create this file.

Introducing /run – what is this directory doing in my root directory?

There is a suggestion to add /run directory that will be mounted as tmpfs. This directory will be mounted early in the boot process and can be used in various scenario’s. I hope this will improve few things in the linux world.
