Re: Cool Functions for your .bashrc file

couple of useful ones..

extract () {

         case $1 in
             *.tar.bz2)   tar xjf $1        ;;
             *.tar.gz)    tar xzf $1     ;;
             *.bz2)       bunzip2 $1       ;;

             *.Z)         uncompress $1  ;;
             *.7z)        7z x $1    ;;
             *)           echo "'$1' cannot be extracted via extract()" ;;
         esac
     else
         echo "'$1' is not a valid file"
     fi
}

#copy and go to dir
cpg (){
  if [ -d "$2" ];then
    cp $1 $2 && cd $2
  else
    cp $1 $2
  fi
}

#move and go to dir
mvg (){
  if [ -d "$2" ];then
    mv $1 $2 && cd $2
  else
    mv $1 $2
  fi
}

quiet (){
  nohup $1 &>/dev/null &
}
complete -A command quiet

Re: Cool Functions for your .bashrc file

benefit of that function in a .bashrc file........... you don't have to be root to install it, doesn't need perl to work, and is 10+ k smaller in size  wink

Re: Cool Functions for your .bashrc file

pacman
yaourt
arch32 chroot
colour bash prompt

I came up with a bunch of alias' for my .bashrc that helps me with pacman and yaourt commands. Maybe somone else might find it useful.

For pacman and chroot sections, If you don't like to use sudo, you could use su -c like this..
alias arch32='su -c "chroot /opt/arch32"'

#simplify yaourt commands using lowercase.

alias y-syu='yaourt -Syu --aur' #sync refresh sys update + aur
alias y-sy='yaourt -Sy'         #sync refresh
alias y-s='yaourt -S'           #install
alias y-sb='yaourt -Sb'         #builds the targets from source
alias y-su='yaourt -Su --aur'   #upgrade all aur packages
alias y-r='yaourt -R'           #remove
alias y-rd='yaourt -Rd'         #remove omit dependencies
alias y-rs='yaourt -Rs'         #remove plus unused dependencies

alias y-u='yaourt -U'           #install local pkg
alias y-scc='yaourt -Scc'       #clean catch - all pkgs
alias y-sc='yaourt -Sc'         #clean catch - old pkgs only
alias y-ss='yaourt -Ss'         #query database
alias y-qs='yaourt -Qs'         #query installed only
alias y-qi='yaourt -Qi'         #pkg more info
alias y-qe='yaourt -Qe'         #look for installed orphans
alias y-ql='yaourt -Ql'         #find pkg file list
alias y-qo='yaourt -Qo'         #/path/to/file = find owner
alias y-sw='yaourt -Sw'         #download but don't install
alias y-sf='yaourt -Sf'         #reinstall - for dep problem "force"

#incase I need to type yaourt..
alias yoaurt='yaourt'
alias yuaort='yaourt'
alias youart='yaourt'

bash promt change for chroot directory..

To help me see that I was actually inside the chroot I altered my promt code in the chroot /root/.bashrc file. Original prompt code from darkarchon on another thread. I liked the message, because it irritates my roomate who uses my computer sometimes. She hates linux. I added sleep 1 and clear because it started irritating me too, seeing it pop up all the time. I think I'll change it to "welcome to Microsoft" just to confuse her!
I'm so mean sometimes! tongue

prompt for normal user .bashrc is the same as root .bashrc

PS1='\[\e[1;35m\]\u\[\e[m\] \[\e[1;36m\]\w\[\e[m\] \[\e[1;32m\]> \[\e[m\]\[\e[0;37m\]'
PS2='>'
echo -e "                ${C}Welcome ${r}to ${C}Linux"
sleep 1
clear

bash prompt for  /opt/arch32/root/.bashrc

PS1='\[\e[1;35m\]arch32 ch\u\[\e[m\] \[\e[1;36m\]\w\[\e[m\] \[\e[1;32m\]> \[\e[m\]\[\e[0;37m\]'
PS2='>'

added alias in normal user .bashrc file

alias arch32='su -c "chroot /opt/arch32"'

what it looks like...

my whole .bashrc is in another thread full of .bashrc stuff, but I'm always changing it....

Re: Cool Functions for your .bashrc file

Look through man pages of a package, useful for a package like imagemagick:

select manpack in $(pacman -Ql $1 | awk '/\/usr\/man/ {print $2}' ); do man $manpack; done

EDIT
changed to match the new way pacman displays directories as well in -Ql.
It checks for a dot in the filename.

select manpack in $(pacman -Ql $1 | awk '/\/usr\/man.*\./ {print $2}' ); do man $manpack; done

EDIT
it didn't look in /usr/share/man!
This will: (it just looks for a '/man/' dir (and a dot as well))

select manpack in $(pacman -Ql $1 | awk '/\/man\/.*\./ {print $2}' ); do man $manpack; done

Re: Cool Functions for your .bashrc file

I was getting quite confused with all the feh themes that had --action#s. This will show all themes with --action looking neat with \n and \t. If you have feh options after the last one (maybe a default directory), or in between the actions, it will be pasted after the action.
Also, if you have a line break in the theme it probably won't work.

alias fehi="sed -ne '/action/ s#\(\w*\).*\(--action1.*$\)#Theme: \1 \2#; s#--action#\n\t#gp' $HOME/.fehrc"

Re: Cool Functions for your .bashrc file

And today I scratched another itch, the "in between" of head and less, which I like to call page.

Usage: page [number_of_current_screensizes_to_display] file

if [ -z $2 ]; then amount=1
else amount=$1; shift
fi
head -n $(stty size | awk '{print $1 * '"$amount"' -1}') $1

-Edit-
Actually, I found the lack of pipeablity annoying. And now I'm using

alias page="head -n $(stty size | awk '{print $1 -2}')"

'-2' for being able to see the previous prompt, which is nice verification. Also, I would have liked to see a 'fold' in there, but I guess this is alright.

Re: Cool Functions for your .bashrc file

Another script. I'm on a roll aren't I. These little things have been bugging me for a while though.

This one is a dirty/bad non-array approach to performing a command on a list of files but giving you the chance to remove a few before doing so. (I say dirty/bad because an array approach would be nicer, I think... I don't know a lot about arrays)

#!/bin/bash
IFS="
"

files="break"
for file in "$@"; do files="$files
$file"; done

while [ -z $done ]; do
select file in $files; do
if [ -z $file ]; then continue; fi
if [ $file = break ]; then done="true"; break; fi
files=$(for change in $files; do if [ $change = $file ]; then continue; else echo "$change"; fi; done)
break
done
done
echo -n 'Command on selection
>> '
read comsel
echo -n 'Append something after:
'"$comsel \"file\" ...: "
read comapp
#uncomment next for verbose (couldn't decide whether to keep or delete it)
#for file in $files; do [ $file = break ] || echo EXEC:  $comsel \"$file\" $comapp; done
for file in $files; do [ $file = break ] || eval $comsel \"$file\" $comapp; done

It works fine with spaces in the filename.

Edit: added the ability to add something after the command (useful for mv).
Btw, putting quotes around $comapp in eval gives unwanted behaviour.

Re: Cool Functions for your .bashrc file

arch64 with yaourt - arch32 chroot with yaourt.

I made up a function to do a complete system update +aur, including the chroot +aur, using just a "sys" command. I thought it would be a good idea to add a "y/n" at the beginning, giving me the option to abort or commit. I made the initial echo bold and cyan, and another echo before updating the chroot to match the yaourt/pacman echos, so I can follow the update easier.

Edit...
May want to change the echos from Chinese to English smile

# System update using yaourt
# Arch64 + AUR, Arch32 chroot + AUR
function syu()
{
echo -e '\e[0;36m完全系统升级 + AUR + chroot... 咱们进行吗? (y/n)\033[0m'
read ans
case $ans in
    Y|y) ;;
    [Yy][Ee][Ss]) ;;
     N|n) return ;;
