  • Written on OSX after `brew install unrar coreutils`; presumably works on other unices with minimal modifications. Didn't test rars that actually have paths in them, just "flat" files. Won't include files in the rar starting with a dot.

swap out "80" for your port of interest. Can use port number or named ports e.g. "http"

Play online music videos in terminal
pvl 'link1' 'link2' 'link3' Play Youtube, Vimeo, etc links without visual elements. Great for music videos when you just want the audio. You can control mplayer with this! Hit Ctrl-C twice to exit (if you're playing multiple files)

Convert CSV to JSON
Replace 'csv_file.csv' with your filename.

ping as traceroute
This command uses ping to get the routers' IP addresses to the destination host as traceroute does. If you know what I mean..

keep an eye on system load changes
helps you keep watch on the load of a system, without having to stare constantly at the terminal. The -d argument to watch highlights the difference from the last run, making it easier to note how the load is fluctuating. The sed command just strips off the information about how long the box has been up, and how many users are logged in.

Convert unix timestamp to date
The "-d" option for gnu's "date" command can calculate positive or negative offset from any time, including "now". You can even specify a source timezone (the output timezone can be set with the TZ environment variable). Useful! Fun! Not very well documented!

list block devices
Shows all block devices in a tree with descruptions of what they are.
