  • An alias i made for myself to play music in a faster way. Works great when you have Guake / Tilda installed (Console that drops down like in the game QUAKE) --- I put this in my bash_alias file (I'm on ubuntu, the bash_alias file does autostart with the right config) but it works putting it in bashrc too. Or anything that autostarts when the console is opened. --- Needs Mplayer and music files to work. With out music theres nothing to play! Oh, and also, without modification, this alias will try to play stuff from your ~/Music folder! (case sensitive). Make sure that folder exists and has music OR edit this alias to fit your needs. Show Sample Output


    -2
    alias mux='clear && cd ~/Music/ && ls && echo -n "File> " && read msi && mplayer ~/Music/$msi'

  • This is the alias command that I discussed in my prior release which you can add to your ~/.bashrc. This command asks for the station name and then connects to somafm, Great for those who have linux home entertainment boxes and ssh enabled on them, just for the CLI fiends out there ( I know I'm one of them ;) You can find future releases of this and many more scripts at the teachings of master denzuko - denzuko.co.cc.


    -2
    alias somafm='read -p "Which station? "; mplayer --reallyquiet -vo none -ao sdl http://somafm.com/startstream=${REPLY}.pls'

  • Execute this in the root of your music library and this recurses through the directories and normalizes each folder containing mp3s as a batch. This assumes those folders hold an album each. The command "normalize-audio" may go by "normalize" on some systems.


    -2
    find . -type d -exec sh -c "normalize-audio -b \"{}\"/*.mp3" \;

Short one line while loop that outputs parameterized content from one file to another
The above is an example of grabbing only the first column. You can define the start and end points specifically by chacater position using the following command: $ while read l; do echo ${l:10:40}; done < three-column-list.txt > column-c10-c40.txt Of course, it doesn't have to be a column, or extraction, it can be replacement $ while read l; do echo ${l/foo/bar}; done < list-with-foo.txt > list-with-bar.txt Read more about parameter expansion here: http://wiki.bash-hackers.org/syntax/pe Think of this as an alternative to awk or sed for file operations
