Check These Out

check open ports without netstat or lsof

Makes the permissions of file2 the same as file1

Use "most" as your man pager
you should have the "most" package installed. I like it because it is colorful and easier to read. alternatively you can use "less" instead of "most". you can also add this to your ~/.bashrc to make it permanent.

Database size
Mysql command to list the disk usage of the database

Get the serial numbers from HP RAID
This dumps serial numbers of all the drives but HP warranty check does not say they are valid ...

Stop long commands wrapping around and over-writing itself in the Bash shell
add the command either in /etc/profile or ~/.bash_profile so that this is available to your shell.

Clean pacman cache in arch linux, manjaro linux

cat a file backwards
Or "tail -r" on Solaris.

Convert files from DOS line endings to UNIX line endings
Here "^M" is NOT "SHIFT+6" and "M". Type CTRL+V+M to get it instead. Its shortest and easy. And its sed!, which is available by default in all linux flavours.. no need to install extra tools like fromdos.

This version uses Pipes, but is easier for the common user to grasp... instead of using sed or some other more complicated method, it uses the tr command
