Write your own bash commands with functions

Here are some functions you can add to your ".bash_profile" that replicate built-in commands.
function echo() { /bin/cat << EOC $@ EOC }

function whoami() { /usr/bin/id -u -n }

function pwd() { echo $PWD }

Writing your own bash functions can be very useful to automate local development tasks.
