  • This command attempts to attach to existing irssi session, if one exists, otherwise creates one. I use "irc" because I use different irc clients depending on what system I am working on. Consistency is queen.

  • Tries to reattach to screen, if it's not available, creates one. created an alias "irc" for it, since sometimes i forget if there already is a screen session running with irssi, this way I avoid creating a new one by mistake.

    screen -r irc || screen -S irc irssi

get stdout to variable and stdout at sametime
Sometimes you want to write the script output to stdout but you need to send it to email. If you use: $ var="$( ls / )"; $ echo -e "$var"; works but, you need to wait the script terminate to bufferize then print the output var; With this way, you can use/work/print the output before the variable receive all the output content, then after it you can use the variable for anything else, like send email.

Sort files in multiple directories by date
This sorts files in multiple directories by their modification date. Note that sorting is done at the end using "sort", instead of using the "-ltr" options to "ls". This ensures correct results when sorting a large number of files, in which case "find" will call "ls" multiple times.
