For example, you need to make a copy of all the libraries that a certain application uses, with this command you can list and copy them.

Get AWS temporary credentials ready to export based on a MFA virtual appliance
You might want to secure your AWS operations requiring to use a MFA token. But then to use API or tools, you need to pass credentials generated with a MFA token. This commands asks you for the MFA code and retrieves these credentials using AWS Cli. To print the exports, you can use: `awk '{ print "export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=\"" $1 "\"\n" "export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=\"" $2 "\"\n" "export AWS_SESSION_TOKEN=\"" $3 "\"" }'` You must adapt the command line to include: * $MFA_IDis ARN of the virtual MFA or serial number of the physical one * TTL for the credentials

Perpetual calendar
Gets any date since today. Other examples of recognized expressions are "2 years 4 days ago", "7 months" (in the future), "next Sunday", "yesterday", "tomorrow", etc.

find duplicate processes
This command will allow to search for duplicate processes and sort them by their run count. Note that if there are same processes run by different users you'll see only one user in the result line, so you'll need to do: $ ps aux | grep to see all users that run this command.

ARP Scan
A much quicker and (not dirtier) option. use the man page for help. On linux/ubuntu you will need to `sudo apt-get -y install arp-scan`.

Print current running shell, PID
works as well as echo $0, but also prints process id, which pts you're using. echo $SHELL doesn't always get updated when changing shells, so this is a better solution than that. Just one more variation on a theme.

Grab the first 3 octets of your ip addresses
For machines that have many ip blocks spanning different Class C's, this will show which ones.

Which processes are listening on a specific port (e.g. port 80)
swap out "80" for your port of interest. Can use port number or named ports e.g. "http"
