  • Tests connection speed over HTTP request. Can use a lot of http mirrors of SAME file (Useful for test with Ubuntu mirrors, as example) and the split will be done opening connections in all urls if possible. -s Split connections in N number MAX=16 -j Set max concurrent downloads, must be equal to -s or will be restricted to this number. -x Set max connection per server, recommended to be the same of split. -k Min Split Size, default is 20MB, usefull to really force more splited connections over same file -d Directory to save the "file", in this case, /dev -o Points output to null --file-allocation=none Do not attempt to prealocate the file. --allow-overwrite=true Overwrite to /dev/null. Recommend use "rm /dev/null.aria2" after if runned as root. Show Sample Output

What's this?

commandlinefu.com is the place to record those command-line gems that you return to again and again. That way others can gain from your CLI wisdom and you from theirs too. All commands can be commented on, discussed and voted up or down.

Find usb device in realtime
Using this command you can track a moment when usb device was attached.

A one-line web server in Ruby
Here's how to serve a directory in one line of Ruby. Handy for sharing files at a conference, for example.

Generate binary sequence data

Find usb device in realtime
Using this command you can track a moment when usb device was attached.

Create a local compressed tarball from remote host directory
This improves on #9892 by compressing the directory on the remote machine so that the amount of data transferred over the network is much smaller. The command uses ssh(1) to get to a remote host, uses tar(1) to archive and compress a remote directory, prints the result to STDOUT, which is written to a local file. In other words, we are archiving and compressing a remote directory to our local box.

Python extract json

Alternative for basename using grep to extract file name
Here's a bash version.

Create a single PDF from multiple images with ImageMagick
Given some images (jpg or other supported formats) in input, you obtain a single PDF file with an image for every page.

Takes and displays screenshot of Android phone over adb.
Dependencies on phone: adb access, screencap command, base64 command. Dependencies on computer: adb, sed, base64, display (from imagemagick, but can substitute other image viewer which reads from stdin). This should work around adb stupidies (i.e. that it replaces \n with \r\n) with base64.

Find files of two different extensions and copy them to a directory
