  • For reverse, there's asc2xml asc2xml < entitiesfile > utf8file They come as a part of the html-xml-utils debian package. PS. Tried to submit sample data, but the site autoconverted the non ascii to html entities. So a bit of imagination is needed. Show Sample Output

Selecting a random file/folder of a folder
I used only shuf command.

convert Decimal to IP from stdin
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/10768160/ip-address-converter

Paged, colored svn diff
I put this in a shell script called "svndiff", as it provides a handy decorated "svn diff" output that is colored (which you can't see here) and paged. The -r is required so less doesn't mangle the color codes.

Email yourself a quick message
Usage: mailme message This is a useful function if you want to get notified about process completion or failure. e.g. $ mailme "process X completed"

View Processeses like a fu, fu
I don't truly enjoy many commands more than this one, which I alias to be ps1.. Cool to be able to see the heirarchy and makes it clearer what need to be killed, and whats really going on.

RTFM function
Same as the other rtfm's, but using the more correct xdg-open instead of $BROWSER. I can't find a way to open info only if the term exists, so it stays out of my version.

Find the package that installed a command

Find biggest 10 files in current and subdirectories and sort by file size

convert a line to a space

Match a URL
For the record: I didn't build this. Just shared what I found that worked. Apologies to the original author! I decided I should fix the case where http://example.com is not matched for the next time I need this. So I read rfc1035 and formalized the host name regex. If anyone finds any more holes, please comment.
