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 the package that installed a command

see who's using DOM storage a/k/a Web Storage, super cookies
Someone over at Mozilla dot Org probably said, "I know, let's create a super-duper universal replacement for browser cookies that are persistent and even more creepy and then NOT give our browser users the tools they need to monitor, read, block or selectively remove them!" . This will let you see all the DOM object users in all your firefox profiles. Feel free to toss a `| sort -u` on the end to remove dupes. . I highly recommend you treat these as "session cookies" by scripting something that deletes this sqlite database during each firefox start-up. . note: does not do anything for so-called "flash cookies"

find external links in all html files in a directory list
Just a handy way to get all the unique links from inside all the html files inside a directory. Can be handy on scripts etc.

bash shell expansion
The expansion {,} in bash will repeat the given string once for each item seperated by commas. The given command will result in the following being run: cp /really/long/path/and/file/name /really/long/path/and/file/name-`date -I` These can be embedded as needed, ex: rm file{1,2,3{1,2,3}} would delete the files file1, file2, file31, file32, file32, and no other files.

Search commandlinefu from the command line
There's probably a more efficient way to do this rather than the relatively long perl program, but perl is my hammer, so text processing looks like a nail. This is of course a lot to type all at once. You can make it better by putting this somewhere: $ clf () { (curl -d "q=$@" http://www.commandlinefu.com/search/autocomplete 2>/dev/null) | egrep 'autocomplete|votes|destination' | perl -pi -e 's/$/\n\n/g;s/^ +|\([0-9]+ votes,//g;s/^\//http:\/\/commandlinefu.com\//g'; } Then, to look up any command, you can do this: $ clf diff This is similar to http://www.colivre.coop.br/Aurium/CLFUSearch except that it's just one line, so more in the spirit of CLF, in my opinion.

Find and copy scattered mp3 files into one directory
I used this command to recursively gather all mp3 files that were previously imported into their own directories (sorted by band name) in Songbird.

postgresql SQL to show count of ALL tables (relations) including relation-size
Postgresql specific SQL - to show count of ALL tables including relation-size (pg_relation_size = used space on filesystem) - might need a VACUUM ANALYZE before showing all counts correctly !

Mount the first NTFS partition inside a VDI file (VirtualBox Disk Image)
Found at: http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?t=52

Find all files with colons and replace with underscores; current directory and below (recursive).

Count down from 10
Countdown from 10 or whatever you want:)
