List only executables installed by a debian package
I wanted to view only executables installed by a package. This seemed to work. There's got to be easier way, please share. Note: (1) Replace iptables with the package name of your interest (2) The command will trash any existing environment variable named 'lst' (3) Instead if you are interested in viewing just .ko or .so files installed by this package, then that would be easy: $ dpkg -L iptables | grep "\.[sk]o$"

Remove git branches that do not have a remote tracking branch anymore

Convert spaces in file names to underscores

Extract audio from a video
With the -vn switch we make our intentions clear and ask FFmpeg not to bother itself with the video. Next we specify the audio codec copy, which tells FFmpeg to use the same codec to encode the audio, which it uses to decode it. To keep things simple, we'll just keep the sampling and bitrate values the same.

Replace the content of an XML element
Replaces "650" with "999" in simple.xml. xml used - http://www.w3schools.com/xml/simple.xml

Write and read HDD external
Write and read HDD external FreeBSD
