fzf: Start fzf with a specified query.
$ fzf --query "${query}"
try on your machine

The command fzf --query "${query}" is used for running the fzf (Fuzzy Finder) utility with a specific query as an input.

Here is the breakdown of the command:

  • fzf is the command to execute the fzf utility.
  • --query "${query}" is an option argument that assigns the value of the query variable to the --query flag. The --query flag specifies the initial input query to be used when fzf starts.

Overall, this command launches the fzf utility and sets the initial input query (search) to the value stored in the query variable.
