tldr-lint: Format all pages in place.
$ tldr-lint --format --in-place ${pages_directory}
try on your machine

The command you provided is using the "tldr-lint" tool with specific options and arguments. Here's the breakdown of each component:

  • "tldr-lint": It refers to the tldr-lint tool, which is a command-line utility used for linting/checking the validity of "tl;dr" pages.

  • "--format": This option is used to specify the format in which the tool should output the results. The format could be plain text or JSON, for example. However, in the command you provided, there is no specific format mentioned. So, it might be incorrect.

  • "--in-place": This option instructs tldr-lint to modify the files in place. Instead of just reporting issues, it will make necessary changes directly to the files being linted.

  • "${pages_directory}": It is a placeholder that should be replaced with the actual directory path where the "tl;dr" pages are located. For this command to work, you need to provide the correct path to the directory containing the pages that need linting.

Overall, this command is likely intended to run the tldr-lint tool, checking the validity of "tl;dr" pages in a specific directory, and potentially modifying the pages directly if any issues are found. However, the missing format parameter might affect its execution depending on the tool's requirements.

This explanation was created by an AI. In most cases those are correct. But please always be careful and never run a command you are not sure if it is safe.
