  • Join all sequentially named files in the directory. Use this for files split by utilities like hjsplit and similar. This command does not do/perform _any_ sanity checks before acting, except that it won't run unless there is a file that matches "*.001". - The outfile should not already exist. - There should be more than one file. (*.002 should exist as well as *.001) - The file-count should match the number in the name of the last file in the series. - None of the files should be empty. - All files should be the same size, except for the last, which should usually be smaller, but never larger than the rest. A safer altenative can be found here: http://pastebin.com/KSS0zU2F

    x=(*.001); cat "${x%.001}."* > "${x%.001}" #unsafe; does not check that all the parts are there, or that the file-sizes make sense!

unbuffered tcpdump
Sometimes the question comes up: How to get unbuffered tcpdump output into the next program in the pipe? i.e. if your OS forces you to wait for the buffer to fill before the next program sees any of the output If you use -Uw- then you can't use -A (or -X or -XX) at the same time. When the question comes up, I've never seen anyone suggest this simple solution: chaining 2 tcpdump instances.
