  • This lengthy cryptic line will print the latest top 10 commandlinefu.com posts without their summaries. To print also their respective summaries use the following (even bigger) command line: wget -qO - http://www.commandlinefu.com/feed/tenup | xmlstarlet sel -T -t -o '<doc>' -n -t -m rss/channel/item -o '<item>' -n -o '<title>' -v title -o '</title>' -n -o '<description>' -v description -o '</description>' -n -o '</item>' -n -t -o '</doc>' | xmlstarlet sel -T -t -m doc/item -v description/code -n -v title -n -n It is recommended to include this line into a shell script to be easily run, as I do myself. You could also use the following URLs to browse the top 3 commands: wget -qO - http://www.commandlinefu.com/feed/threeup | xmlstarlet ... .. or all others: wget -qO - http://feeds2.feedburner.com/Command-line-fu | xmlstarlet ... PS: You need to install "xmlstarlet" to run it. It is found in Debian APT repositories (apt-get install xmlstarlet) or under the http://xmlstar.sourceforge.net/ URL. 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.

Check These Out

Kill any lingering ssh processes

Find the package that installed a command

List your MACs address

Know SELinux status
Usefule to check whether SELinux is in force or disabled. Though you need to be superuser while execute this command.

Show all LISTENing and open server connections, with port number and process name/pid

Renames all files in the current directory such that the new file contains no space characters.
This is a better version, as it does no command piping, uses for instead of while loops, which allows for a list of files in the current working directory to be natively processed. It also uses the -v/verbose option with mv to let you know what the command is doing. While the command does exactly the same in a better way, I would modify the sed option to replace spaces with underscores instead, or dashes. Please note that you'll receive errors with this command as it tries to rename files that don't even have spaces. This is an alternative to: http://www.commandlinefu.com/commands/view/8761/renames-all-files-in-the-current-directory-such-that-the-new-file-contains-no-space-characters.

Show GCC-generated optimization commands when using the "-march=native" or "-mtune=native" switches for compilation.
You can tell GCC to automatically select optimization commands and produce optimized code for the local machine (the one compiling the code), but you can't normally see what switches have been selected and used unless you append a "-v" and pause compilation.

Burn CD/DVD from an iso, eject disc when finished.
cdrecord -scanbus will tell you the (x,y,z) value of your cdr (for example, mine is 3,0,0)

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" }

Get sunrise and sunset times
This will get the sunrise and sunset times of a specific location. To be able to determine $l you need to first go to http://weather.yahoo.com/ and look up your location. The last numbers in the URL will be the $l Instead of forecastrss?w=$l you can also use forecastrss?p=$l and use the RSS link of the city you found. Also see http://developer.yahoo.com/weather/ for more information
