add all files not under version control to repository
With the force options the same results can be achieved

Apply substitution only on the line following a marker
I've been auto-generating some complex GnuPlots; with multiplots the first plot of each group needs to be a 'plot' whereas the others need to be 'replots' to allow overplotting/autoscaling/etc to work properly. This is used to replace only the first instance of 'replot'.

Convert CSV to JSON
Replace 'csv_file.csv' with your filename.

List your sudo rights
List the commands you have the right to use with sudo.

List the libraries used by an application
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.

Resize a Terminal Window
Replace 70 with the desired height. Replace 180 with the desired width. I put it in my bashrc, because by default my terminal is too small.

Detect illegal access to kernel space, potentially useful for Meltdown detection
Based on capsule8 agent examples, not rigorously tested

Generat a Random MAC address
Just increase the 1 at the end if you want to generate more than one. (Alternative to "| head -n N" you could use the -b flag of od: -b $[6*N]

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"

List users with running processes
This is different that `who` in that who only cares about logged-in users running shells, this command will show all daemon users and what not; also users logged in remotely via SSH but are running SFTP/SCP only and not a shell.
