Requires googlecl (http://code.google.com/p/googlecl/) Even better when you wrap this in a script and allow the --date=STRING to be $1. Then you can type: whatson "next Thursday" The date string for UNIX date is very flexible. You can also add --cal "[regex]" to the end for multiple calendars.

Setting: You have a lot of jpg files in a directory. Maybe your public_html folder which is readable on the net because of Apache's mod_userdir. All those files from the current folder will be dropped into a file called gallery.html as image tags that can be viewed within a web browser locally or or over the Internet. Original: $find . -iname "*.jpg" -exec echo "" >> gallery.html \;
