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.
If you have a new feature suggestion or find a bug, please get in touch via http://commandlinefu.uservoice.com/
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,…):
Subscribe to the feed for:
* Find all file sizes and file names from the current directory down (replace "." with a target directory as needed).
* sort the file sizes in numeric order
* List only the duplicated file sizes
* drop the file sizes so there are simply a list of files (retain order)
* calculate md5sums on all of the files
* replace the first instance of two spaces (md5sum output) with a \0
* drop the unique md5sums so only duplicate files remain listed
* Use AWK to aggregate identical files on one line.
* Remove the blank line from the beginning (This was done more efficiently by putting another "IF" into the AWK command, but then the whole line exceeded the 255 char limit).
>>>> Each output line contains the md5sum and then all of the files that have that identical md5sum. All fields are \0 delimited. All records are \n delimited.
I did not come up with this one myself, but found this somewhere else several months ago.
My first command :) I made this command to log public addresses of a virtual interface who connects random VPN servers around the world.
The original command is great, but I often want to prepend to every line.
Shows the OS X applications downloaded from App Store. Doesn't include manually added apps.
Took one of the samples, added capitalization and removes in between spaces.
The final "echo" is just for readability.
set BLOCK to "title" or any other HTML / RSS / XML tag and curl URL to get everything in-between e.g. some text
Take a list of words and let mpv play the pronunciation-file from gstatic. Inspired by http://www.commandlinefu.com/commands/view/12574/download-englishword-pronounciation-as-mp3-file.
Optionally, pipe the output into http://sed.sourceforge.net/grabbag/scripts/html2iso.sed
Or: wget -qO - http://www.asciiartfarts.com/random.cgi | sed -n '//,//p' | sed -n '/
Quickly remove the conflicting line (key) from current users known_hosts file when there is an SSH host conflict. Very nice when you get tired of writing out full commands. Ideally you would place this into your .bash_profile
Usage: rhost [n]
Example: rhost 33 (removes line 33 from ~/.ssh/known_hosts)
Function assumes the $HOME exists, you could alternatively use "~/.ssh/known_hosts"
Mac OSX likes a space for sed -i "$1" d
becuase im lazy and cant be bothered looking at the tv guide to choose a channel , any improvments or comments appreciated
uses just one sed
Automatically drops mount points that have non-numeric sizes (e.g. /proc). Tested in bash on Linux and AIX.
I use this with alias:
alias lsl="ls -1F | grep @$ | sed 's/@//' | column"
Limitation: This will also list files that happen to have an @ at the end of the filename.
I use this with alias:
alias lsl="ls -1F | grep @ | sed 's/@//' | column"
find the uptime and convert in minutes, works with AIX and Linux too
Recursively list all files in the current directory & get their md5sum, even if the filename has bad characters.
dumpfile is a CSV file, which its 1st field is a phone number in format CC+10 digits
Empty lines are deleted, before the output in format "prefix,ocurrences"
