How do I skip a few steps?

Jim said normally he would do all these steps in one line, so I know that there a better way than demonstrated in the video.

First the instructor typed this (link updated for 2015):

treehouse ~ $ curl -O https://www.sqlite.org/2015/sqlite-autoconf-3081101.tar.gz

Then he made a directory named "src" and inserted the new "sqlite-autoconf-3081101.tar.gz"

into it:

treehouse ~ $ mkdir src
treehouse ~ $ mv sqlite-autoconf-3081101.tar.gz src/

What would the syntax be to do this all in one step?

connecting commands with && should work, can't test this cause I am not in Linux at the moment and the treehouse console is bugged for me :/
