  • Put the string above in your ~/.bashrc or ~/.bash_profile, then source the file. Make sure your sound output is working, you have mplayer installed, then type in a word or sentence similar to below: say "why won't anyone talk to me?" It's easy to get the language to be different by changing the "en" in the string to be "de" or some other language that Google Translate supports. Have multiple "say" functions, like "say-en" "say-de", etc. Show Sample Output

  • 1. There is no use of '--color=auto' in front of a pipe--instead with '--color=always' grep will mark the section headings. 2. I suppose the use of grep with '-A 900' or '-B 900' respectively a 'dirty trick'--sed can do 'exactly' what we want, however, grep does the nice colouring (see 1.) 3. Cutting of the tail (everthing starting with 'Weitere Aktionen') first leads to no output if leo doesn't no the translation. Show Sample Output

Delete all aliases for a network interface on a (Free)BSD system
The example command deletes all aliases for network interface 'em0' assuming that the aliases have netmask of 255.255.255.255 and the master IP has some other netmask (such as 255.255.255.0).
