commandlinefu.com is the place to record those command-line gems that you return to again and again.
Delete that bloated snippets file you've been using and share your personal repository with the world. That way others can gain from your CLI wisdom and you from theirs too. All commands can be commented on, discussed and voted up or down.
You can sign-in using OpenID credentials, or register a traditional username and password.
First-time OpenID users will be automatically assigned a username which can be changed after signing in.
Every new command is wrapped in a tweet and posted to Twitter. Following the stream is a great way of staying abreast of the latest commands. For the more discerning, there are Twitter accounts for commands that get a minimum of 3 and 10 votes - that way only the great commands get tweeted.
Use your favourite RSS aggregator to stay in touch with the latest commands. There are feeds mirroring the 3 Twitter streams as well as for virtually every other subset (users, tags, functions,…):

Wow, didn't really expect you to read this far down. The latest iteration of the site is in open beta. It's a gentle open beta-- not in prime-time just yet. It's being hosted over at UpGuard (link) and you are more than welcome to give it a shot. Couple things:
compress directory archive with xz compression, if tar doesn't have the -J option (OSX tar doesn't have -J)
Compress files or a directory to xz format. XZ has superior and faster compression than bzip2 in most cases. XZ is superior to 7zip format because it can save file permissions and other metadata data.
Similar, but uses tarball instead of zip file
Create a tar file in multiple parts if it's to large for a single disk, your filesystem, etc.
Rejoin later with `cat .tar.*|tar xf -`
The command as given would create the file "/result_path/result.tar.gz" with the contents of the target folder including permissions and sub- folder structure.
Sometimes it is handy to be able to list contents of a tar file within a compressed archive, such as 7Zip in this instance, without having to extract the archive first. This is especially helpful when dealing with larger sized files.
Using 7z to create archives is OK, but when you use tar, you preserve all file-specific information such as ownership, perms, etc. If that's important to you, this is a better way to do it.
You can flexibly change file pattern(*.tar.gz) and uncompress command to other job!
Example, remove all files :
for i in *.tar.gz; do rm $i; done
(Just for example, because if you really want to remove file, simply use wildcard like this rm *.tar.gz)
Very simple and useful, you need to change the word "directory" for your directory
