What's this?

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.

Get involved!

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.

UpGuard checks and validates configurations for every major OS, network device, and cloud provider.

Stay in the loop…

Follow the Tweets.

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.

Why posting microsoft stuff here? A better place for MS would be mousepushingfu.com or something like that.... ;-)

What flavor of 'unix' does this work on? I can't seem to get it to do anything, anywhere.

Could've sworn this was a Linux command place.

Sadly, most of us have to deal with MS platforms at some point. I much prefer to script things up when possible. Makes it much easier to run from say, a meterpreter shell ;)
