  • The other 2 commands that are listed will also kill the egrep process and any libexec processes because the .exe isn't escaped so it is really using . meaning anything containing exe. The command i posted escapes the (dot) in .exe and then filters the actual egrep process so that it doesn't get killed before the other processes being killed. Also added the -9 switch for kill to send sigterm to the processes, in case people are wondering why processes aren't getting killed after running just kill . This should work better for people :)

  • This command kills all wine instances and each EXE application working on a PC. Here is command info: 1) ps ax > processes = save process list to file named "processes" (we save it because we don't wont egrep to be found in the future) 2) cat processes | egrep "*.exe |*exe]" = shows the file "processes" and after greps for each *.exe and *exe] in it 3) | awk '{ print $1 }' > pstokill = saves processes PID's to file "pstokill" using awk filter 4) kill $(cat pstokill) = kills each PID in file pstokill, which is shown by cat program 5) rm processes && rm pstokill = removes temporary files Show Sample Output

sort ugly text
Often, when sorting you want the sort to ignore extraneous characters. The b, d, and f tell sort to ignore leading blanks, use 'dictionary order' (ignore punctuation), and ignore (fold) case. Add a "u" if you only want one copy of duplicate lines. This is a great command to use within vim to sort lines of text, using !}sort -bdf
