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.


If you have a new feature suggestion or find a bug, please get in touch via http://commandlinefu.uservoice.com/

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.

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.

I didnt make the down vote but on my distrib :

W: GPG error: http://ftp.debian.org unstable Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 9AA38DCD55BE302B

W: Failed to fetch http://archive.offensive-security.com/dists/pwnsauce/Release Unable to find expected entry main/source/Sources in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)

Comment by strzel_a 200 weeks and 2 days ago

the first error isnt your fault (:

Comment by strzel_a 200 weeks and 2 days ago

The second one technically isn't my fault either. Backtrack repo has a sources directory, just their listing page is not where it should be.

Comment by kzh 200 weeks and 2 days ago

i tried it but there are no 64bit deb files available, am i right?

Comment by alperyilmaz 199 weeks and 4 days ago

@alperyilmaz: You are right. I have been saddened by this as well.
