Commands using make (13)

  • Force make command to create as many compile processes as specified (4 in the example), so that each one goes into one core or CPU and compilation happens in parallel. This reduces the time required to compile a program by up to a half in the case of CPUs with 2 cores, one fourth in the case of quad cores... and so on.

  • this oneliner uses make and it's jobserver for parallel execution of your script. The '-j' flag for make defines number of subprocesses to launch, '-f' tells make use stdin instead of Makefile. Also make have neat flag '-l', which "Specifies that no new jobs (commands) should be started if there are others jobs running and the load is at least load (a floating-point number)." Also you can use plain Makefile, for better readability: targets = $(subst .png,.jpg,$(wildcard *.png)) (targets): echo convert $(subst .jpg,.png,[email protected]) [email protected] all : $(targets)


    5
    echo -n 'targets = $(subst .png,.jpg,$(wildcard *.png))\n$(targets):\n convert $(subst .jpg,.png,[email protected]) [email protected] \nall : $(targets)' | make -j 4 -f - all

  • This would allow reference of $(VAR) (if defined) with the value 'foobar' within the Makefile.

  • Say your dependencies specified in your Makefile (or dates on your source files) is causing 'make' to skip some source-files (that it should not) or on the other other end, if it is causing make to always build some source-files regardless of dates of target, then above command is handy to find out what 'make' thinks of your date v/s target date-wise or what dependencies are in make's view-point. The egrep part removes the extra noise, that you might want to avoid. Show Sample Output

    make -d | egrep --color -i '(considering|older|newer|remake)'

  • on a dpkg managed system this PATTERN will help you generate .deb files from source AND remove all the dev libs you had to install. i hate cluttering up my machine with rouge packages and headers. it would be pretty darn easy on rpm systems as well. i just dont have a rpm managed system to test on right now. NOTE, you sharp ones will notice that it uninstalls the deb you just made! yeah, but the deb is still there to do with it what you want, like re install it. or you can just grep -v after the diff

  • Join all sequentially named files in the directory. Use this for files split by utilities like hjsplit and similar. This command does not do/perform _any_ sanity checks before acting, except that it won't run unless there is a file that matches "*.001". - The outfile should not already exist. - There should be more than one file. (*.002 should exist as well as *.001) - The file-count should match the number in the name of the last file in the series. - None of the files should be empty. - All files should be the same size, except for the last, which should usually be smaller, but never larger than the rest. A safer altenative can be found here: http://pastebin.com/KSS0zU2F

    x=(*.001); cat "${x%.001}."* > "${x%.001}" #unsafe; does not check that all the parts are there, or that the file-sizes make sense!

back ssh from firewalled hosts
host B (you) redirects a modem port (62220) to his local ssh. host A is a remote machine (the ones that issues the ssh cmd). once connected port 5497 is in listening mode on host B. host B just do a ssh 127.0.0.1 -p 5497 -l user and reaches the remote host'ssh. This can be used also for vnc and so on.

Huh? Where did all my precious space go ?
Sort ls output of all files in current directory in ascending order Just the 20 biggest ones: $ ls -la | sort -k 5bn | tail -n 20 A variant for the current directory tree with subdirectories and pretty columns is: $ find . -type f -print0 | xargs -0 ls -la | sort -k 5bn | column -t And finding the subdirectories consuming the most space with displayed block size 1k: $ du -sk ./* | sort -k 1bn | column -t

Sort all running processes by their memory & CPU usage
you can also pipe it to "tail" command to show 10 most memory using processes.
