  • Found this useful query at http://id.motd.org/pivot/entry.php?id=22. The b.parent=2 in the command refers to the bookmarks folder to extract. See the source webpage for additional info.

  • pushd and popd are your friends, but sometimes they're just incompatible with the way one works... Two shell functions: bm bookmarkname - "bookmarks" the current directory, just 'cd $BMbookmarkname' to return to it. forget bookmarkname - unsets the 'bookmarkname' variable. It isn't mandatory, they cease to exist when the session ends. Show Sample Output

    bm() { export BM${1?"bookmark name missing"}="$PWD" ; }; forget() { unset BM${1?"bookmark name missing"} ; }

  • 1. First we get the `item_id` for that `comment`. Adapt the -C[N] parameter for your use. 2. Then we show the bookmark's `title` (or `url`). With that in your hand it's a matter of seconds to open Firefox's library and find the bookmark. Handy for eg. forensics or better sanitize of a place.sqlite before sharing it (on the cloud). It sure has room for improvement. Show Sample Output

  • If you add the bookmarklet to your browser's bookmarks with like say, the keyword 'cfu', you can for example type 'cfu hello' in the location bar and the %s gets replaced with 'hello'. The bookmarklet will convert the search text to base64 for use with the commandlinefu website and will take you there. Tested with Firefox. Show Sample Output

What's this?

commandlinefu.com is the place to record those command-line gems that you return to again and again. That way others can gain from your CLI wisdom and you from theirs too. All commands can be commented on, discussed and voted up or down.

Create a persistent connection to a machine
Create a persistent SSH connection to the host in the background. Combine this with settings in your ~/.ssh/config: Host host ControlPath ~/.ssh/master-%r@%h:%p ControlMaster no All the SSH connections to the machine will then go through the persisten SSH socket. This is very useful if you are using SSH to synchronize files (using rsync/sftp/cvs/svn) on a regular basis because it won't create a new socket each time to open an ssh connection.

date offset calculations
The date command does offset calculations nicely, handles concepts like "a month" as you'd expect, and is good for offsets of at least 100M years in either direction.

Convert seconds to [DD:][HH:]MM:SS
Converts any number of seconds into days, hours, minutes and seconds. sec2dhms() { declare -i SS="$1" D=$(( SS / 86400 )) H=$(( SS % 86400 / 3600 )) M=$(( SS % 3600 / 60 )) S=$(( SS % 60 )) [ "$D" -gt 0 ] && echo -n "${D}:" [ "$H" -gt 0 ] && printf "%02g:" "$H" printf "%02g:%02g\n" "$M" "$S" }

Convert the contents of a directory listing into a colon-separated environment variable
Useful for making a CLASSPATH out of a list of JAR files, for example. Also: export CLASSPATH=.:$(find ./lib -name '*.jar' -printf '%p:')

fetch all revisions of a specific file in an SVN repository
exported files will get a .r23 extension (where 23 is the revision number)

wget multiple files (or mirror) from NTLM-protected Sharepoint
If you have to deal with MS Sharepoint which is (rarely, let's hope) used in e.g. certain corporate environments). This uses Cntlm. For single files, just use cURL -- its NTLM authentication works quite well. # /etc/cntlm.conf: # Username account # Domain domain # Password ############ # Proxy 10.20.30.40 (IP of the sharepoint site) # NoProxy * # Listen 3128

Which processes are listening on a specific port (e.g. port 80)
swap out "80" for your port of interest. Can use port number or named ports e.g. "http"

Rename all files which contain the sub-string 'foo', replacing it with 'bar'
Would this command line achieve the desired function? My CLI knowledge is not great so this could certainly be wrong. It is merely a suggestion for more experienced uses to critique. Best wishes roly :-)

Resize a Terminal Window
Replace 70 with the desired height. Replace 180 with the desired width. I put it in my bashrc, because by default my terminal is too small.
