  • Filters out all non-insert SQL operations (we couldn't filter out only lines starting with "INSERT" because inserts can span multiple lines), quotes table names with backticks, saves dump to a file and pipes it straight to mysql. This transfers only data--it expects your schema is already in place. In Ruby on Rails, you can easily recreate the schema in MySQL with "rake db:schema:load RAILS_ENV=production".

    sqlite3 mydb.sqlite3 '.dump' | grep -vE '^(BEGIN|COMMIT|CREATE|DELETE)|"sqlite_sequence"' | sed -r 's/"([^"]+)"/`\1`/' | tee mydb.sql | mysql -p mydb

  • No need to loop when we have `xargs`. The sed command filters out the first line of `show databases` output, which is always "Database".

    mysql -e 'show databases' | sed -n '2,$p' | xargs -I DB 'mysqldump DB > DB.sql'

Find out how old a web page is
I used to use the Firefox "View page info" feature a lot to determine how stale the web page I was looking at was. Now that I use mostly Chrome I miss that feature, so here is a command line alternative using wget. The -S says to display the server response, the --spider says to not download any files/pages, just fetch the header. The output goes to stderr, so to grep it you use 2>&1 to combine the stderr stream with stdout, the pipe that to grep for Last-Modified. You can use curl instead if you have it installed, like this: $ curl --head -s http://osswin.sourceforge.net | grep Mod
