  • It handles all possible combination of the hex bytes, including NaNs, Infinities, Normalized and Subnormal Numbers... This crazy DC stuff spent me a few days to write, optimize, polish and squeeze so that it works within the tight 255 character bound... You can modify it easily for other IEEE754 numbers, say, half, double, double-extended, quadruple (I hope someone will find this useful and submit more dc code to commandlinefu!) Show Sample Output

Speed up builds and scripts, remove duplicate entries in $PATH. Users scripts are oftern bad: PATH=/apath:$PATH type of thing cause diplicate.

Paste hardware list (hwls) in html format into pastehtml.com directly from console and return URI.

Countdown Clock
The biggest advantage over atoponce's nifty original is not killing the scrollback. Written assuming bash, but shouldn't be terribly difficult to port to other shells. S should be multiple spaces, but I can't get commandlinefu to save/show them properly, any help?

Substitute audio track of video file using mencoder
Creates a new video file with video stream copied from input file and a different audio stream

check open ports without netstat or lsof

Scan for [samba|lanman] NetBIOS names and ip addresses in LAN by ARP.

Execute a sudo command remotely, without displaying the password
The ssh command alone will execute the sudo command remotely, but the password will be visible in the terminal as you type it. The two stty commands disable the terminal from echoing the password back to you, which makes the remote sudo act as it does locally.

Extract ip addresses with sed
Extracts ip addressess from file using sed. Uses a tag(ip) to grep the IP lines after extracting. Must be a way to just output regex matched on sed.
