  • Do you have an entire album in a unique file and want to split it in individual tracks? If you also have the cue file you can do it! Packages for Debian-based systems users: * cuetools shntool * FLAC (.flac): flac * WavPack (.wv): wavpack * Monkey's Audio (.ape): libmac2 monkeys-audio (deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org sid main) NOTE: "sid" packages are unstable, but I didn't have problems with them. If you prefer, use the "stable" version repository. To transfer the tags, you can use this (works with .flac, .ogg and .mp3): cuetag sample.cue split-track*.flac Show Sample Output

Find the files that contain a certain term
Simple use of find and grep to recursively search a directory for files that contain a certain term.

Sysadmin day date of any given year
Calculate the date of Sysadmin day (last Friday of July) of any given year

find all file larger than 500M

Show current working directory of a process

Count the number of characters in each line

Copy a file and force owner/group/mode
This is useful when you want to copy a file and also force a user, a group and a mode for that file. Note: if you want to move that file instead of copying it, you can use $install -o user -g group -m 755 /path/to/file /path/to/dir/ && rm -f /path/to/file which will remove the file only if the install command went fine.

Get the full path of a bash script's Git repository head.
Rather than complicated and fragile paths relative to a script like "../../other", this command will retrieve the full path of the file's repository head. Safe with spaces in directory names. Works within a symlinked directory. Broken down: $cd "$(dirname "${BASH_SOURCE[0]}")" temporarily changes directories within this expansion. Double quoted "$(dirname" and ")" with unquoted ${BASH_SOURCE[0]} allows spaces in the path. $git rev-parse --show-toplevel gets the full path of the repository head of the current working directory, which was temporarily changed by the "cd".

Sort on multiple dis-contiguous keys/fields (can even specify key number/field from the end)
Notes: 1) -n-1 means sort key is the last field 2) -l is important if each separate record is on a new line (usually so for text files) 3) -j tells msort not to create log file (msort.log) in the working directory 4) may need to install msort package. 5) msort does lot more. Check man msort

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" }
