  • To use this comment you'll have to create a file entitled 'ignorelist' where you put the file name or pattern of the files you want to ignore. I used it for my maven project which generates the child project files in each folder so I can import them into eclipse. By adding these project files to the ignore list ensure they won't appear each time I run 'svn status'. Show Sample Output

    for folder in $( find $( pwd ) -maxdepth 1 -type d | grep -v .svn ); do svn propset svn:ignore -F ignorelist ${folder}; done

  • For a python project, sometimes I need to clean all the compiled python files. I have an alias 'rmpyc' to this command. This really saves me a lot of typing and hunting throughout the folders to delete those files.

    find . -name "*.pyc" -exec rm {} \;

  • When trying to find an error in a hosted project it's interesting to find out how the source is organized: Are there .inc files? Or .php files only? Or .xml files that probably contain translated texts? Show Sample Output

    find . -type f | perl -ne 'chop(); $ext = substr($_, rindex($_, ".") + 1); print "$ext\n";' | sort | uniq --count | sort -n

  • I find it very handy to be able to quickly see the most recently modified/created files in a directory. Note that the "q" option will reveal any files with non-printable characters in their filename. Show Sample Output


    7
    ls -qaltr # list directory in chronological order, most recent files at end of list
