Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

man wrapper that allows you to view rfcs if you have the rfc package installed. The sed removes form feeds from the text files.

usage: man rfc822

Note: rfc is a space hog.

man() {
    local RFC=/usr/share/doc/rfc/txt/$1.txt
    if [ -r $RFC ]
    then
        cat $RFC | sed 's/\f//' | less
    else
        /usr/bin/man $@
    fi
}

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

scrapes the mirror status webpage for your uncommented mirrors and pretty-prints results:

script:

#!/bin/bash
#
# pbrisbin 2009
#
###

tmp='/tmp/mirrors'
URL='https://users.archlinux.de/~gerbra/mirrorcheck.html'

get_active_mirrors() { awk '/^Server = .*/ {print $3}' /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist | cut -d '/' -f 3; }

# download mirror status page
lynx -dump "$URL" | grep -A 1000 'CAPTION: All mirrors' > "$tmp"

# no data
if [ ! -s "$tmp" ]; then
  echo 'error getting mirrors status'

  [ -e "$tmp" ] && rm "$tmp"
  exit 1
fi

# header row
echo 'Mirror                    Last sync data'

# lines scraped from page
for mirror in $(get_active_mirrors); do
  (echo -n $mirror; grep -A 1 "^\ \ \ \[[0-9]*\]$mirror" "$tmp"  | tail -1) |\
  awk '{ if ($3) printf "%-25s %3s %3s %2s %8s %3s %4s %3s %7s %5s\n",
                           $1, $3, $4, $5, $6, $7, $8, $9, $10, $11 }'

done

# cleanup
rm "$tmp"

output:

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

Looks good but:

get_active_mirrors() { grep -v '^$\|^#' /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist | awk '{print $3}' | awk -F '/' '{print $3}'; }

could be

get_active_mirrors() { awk -F '/' '/^Server = .*/ {print $3}' /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist; }

smile

The scraping code looks interesting...but I haven't time to go through it in detail, yet. Looks like it could be applied to other pages, though.

(edited - forgot the file)

There's this short secret ...

Edit: I think this is about as quick as yours ...

re=$(sed '/^ *Server *= *\([^\$]*\)\$repo.*$/!d;s//\1/' /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist | tr '\n' '|' | sed 's/|$//')
grep -E "$re" <(curl -s 'https://www.archlinux.de/?page=MirrorStatusReflector')

There apparently is much, much duplicated work in the filtering (grep), but no big deal for such a small input tongue

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

Okay, I make no claims that this is the best way to do this in awk, but I wanted to do it as an exercise. This is the mirror status scrape written just using awk & lynx:

#!/bin/bash
ARC="i686"
URL="https://users.archlinux.de/~gerbra/mirrorcheck.html"

lynx -dump $URL | gawk '# Mirror Status lookup

BEGIN   {
            FS = "/"
            while ((getline < "/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist") > 0) {
                if ($0 ~ /^ *Server.*/) {
                    mirror[$3]=1
                }
            }
            FS = " "
            getDetails = 0
        }

/CAPTION: All/,/^ *Contact/ {
            if ($0 ~ /\[[[:digit:]]+\]/) {
                sub("\\[[[:digit:]]+\\]", "", $0)
                server = $1
                if (server in mirror) {
                    printf("%-25s--- \n", server)
                    getDetails = 1
                }
                else
                {
                    getDetails = 0
                }
            }
            else {
                if (getDetails) {
                    if ($1 ~ /.*'"$ARC"'.*/) {
                        printf ( "%-25s %3s %2s %8s %3s %4s %3s %7s\n",
                                    $1, $3, $4, $5, $6, $7, $8, $10)
                    }
                }
            }
        }'  -

It prints a line for each repository for i686. To use x86_64 just change the value of ARC to that.

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

Just for the hell of it, here's that method in (g)awk. smile
Again, there might be a better way of doing it in awk alone.

#!/bin/bash

URL="https://www.archlinux.de/?page=MirrorStatusReflector"

curl -s $URL | gawk '# Mirror Status lookup
BEGIN { while ((getline < "/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist") > 0) {
          if ($0 ~ /^[^#]/) {
             sub("\\$repo.*", "", $3)
             mirror[$3] = 1
          }
        }
      }
      { if ($3 in mirror) print }' -

COMMENTARY:

My OS is on a flash stick to be used on any PC.
lshwid.sh carves out parts from lshw that will be the same each time you run it on a PC, not prone to small differences like plugging in a webcam, etc., and the resulting files are stored in a specific place.
identpc.sh matches all stored hwid files against a new lshwid.sh output and runs the appropriate setup script (which mounts local drives and changes xorg.conf, most importantly) if there's a match. It's called from /etc/rc.local so this happens automatically on boot.

'tub-files' is the directory holding all my important files that i carry with me, on the flash stick also holding my OS.
'tub-home' is my real home directory, holding backups, and more useless stuff like media files (music, films...). I wouldn't make it $HOME though as lots of software carelessly dumps files there, while any config files i care about go into **/tub-files/system/config/.

Dunno how good you find these, all are pretty straight forward i guess, but i'm proud of the PC identification, and using an `echo -n "<multiple_lines>"` inside a $() to get rid of excessive newline-backslashing FTW. big_smile

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

pick a random argument

#!/bin/bash

[ $# -eq 0 ] && exit 1
[ $# -eq 1 ] && { echo $1 ; exit 1 ;}

n=0
RANDOM=$$

# Choose a random args
while [ $n -eq 0 ] ; do
    n=$[$RANDOM % $[$# + 1] ]
done

eval echo "\${$n}"

best way to phrase that ever.

also, could so something like this

#!/bin/bash

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

I am used to using Guake terminal, and wanted the same hide/show feature using the default terminal in xfce4 so I wrote a little program that checks if the terminal is open (then it focuses it), or open a new terminal if none is open.

I haven't done any Linux-programming before, so if anyone see any improvements to this; yell out! big_smile

If anyone wonders I got this program ("oof Terminal") bound to CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER smile

Requires wmctrl.

oof.c (open-or-focus tongue ):

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>

int main(int argc, char* argv[]) {
    if(argc != 2) {
        printf("%s: one operand please.\n", argv[0]);
        return 1;
    }
    
    char command[256];
    command[0] = '\0';
    strcat(command, "pgrep \0");
    strcat(command, argv[1]);
    
    FILE *fpipe = (FILE*)popen(command, "r");
    char line[256];
    
    int c = 0;
    while(fgets(line, sizeof(line), fpipe)) {
        // printf("%s", line);
        c++;
    }
    
    if(c < 1) {
        system(argv[1]);
    }
    else {
        char cmd[256];
        cmd[0] = '\0';
        strcat(cmd, "wmctrl -a \0");
        strcat(cmd, argv[1]);
        system(cmd);
    }

    pclose(fpipe);
    return 0;
}

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

The most highly convoluted random directory function ever:

rand(){ x=(${1:-$PWD}/*);x=$(file ${x[$(($RANDOM%${#x[@]}))]});[ ! "${x##*: dir*}" ]&&x=${x%%:*}&&echo ${x//\/\//\/}||rand; }

Dun dun dun...

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

Determines if someone is an oldgit:

oldgitAge = 50 #start of oldgitness
age = input("Enter age: ")
while age >= oldgitAge:
    print "oldgitness" #infinite loop of oldgitness
else:
    print "He is an oldgit! there must be an error."

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

for people who use when, the simple calendar program, and would like to have pop-ups with gxmessage, i created a script to do just that.

#!/bin/bash
 
# set date, create file
current="$(date -d '15 minutes' +%-l:%M%p)"
today=~/.when/today
when --past=0 --future=0 > $today
 
# display task only
reminders=`grep "$current"$ $today | awk '{print substr($0, index($0,$5)) }'`
espeak -v english-us "$reminders" &
 
# call gxmessage
when_remind() {
gxmessage -center -nofocus -borderless -geometry 400x200 -timeout 1800 "$reminders"
}
 
#[ "$reminders" ] && when_remind || gxmessage -center -timeout 5 -name Empty "No reminders."
[ "$reminders" ] && when_remind

format your appointments like so:

2010 feb 21, visit google, 2PM
2010 march 10, discover the meaning of life, 3PM

and add a line like this to your cron file:

*/ * * * * export DISPLAY=:0.0 && sh /path/to/when_remind.sh

now every five minutes it should check if you have upcoming appointments, and if you do, it will pop up with formatted output:

visit google, 2PM
discover the meaning of life, 3PM

link: http://github.com/supulton/gitstuff/blo … _remind.sh
updated; no longer in hour-only increments.

here's a helper script for when_reminder to add appointments without going into an editor
link: http://github.com/supulton/gitstuff/blo … ipts/whena

i also wrote an mpc pipemenu for openbox.

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

Just a simple ruby script, that put files into trash.
(I've aliased rm to trash.rb in my .zshrc)

#!/usr/bin/ruby -w
# trash.rb
# a script for trashing files
#

require "fileutils"

randnumber  = rand(100)
file_names     = []
ARGV.each do |file|
  file_names << file
end

file_names.each do |fn|
  new_fn = "/home/jonas/.trash/#{File.basename(fn)}-#{randnumber}.trash"
  FileUtils.mv(fn, new_fn)
end

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

I spent some time writing a ruby bookmarking app, but then today I realized that I could accomplish the core in one line of bash:

#!/bin/bash

ln -Ts "$PWD" ~/s/"`basename "$PWD"`"

Of course you need the ~/s (s for symlink) directory. Tab completion, bookmark "management", come for free!

Edit:
After some more time tinkering, this is what I've come up with:

#!/bin/bash

if [ $1 ]
  then name=$1
else
  name=`basename "$PWD"`
fi

ln -Ts "$PWD" ~/s/"$name" && echo bookmarked $PWD: $name

For even faster access, in my .bash_aliases file I've got the following:

v() { vim ~/s/"$1"; }

So I can type `v ba` and immediately start editing my .bash_aliases. Of course, adding `alias ba="vim ~/.bash_aliases"` would be even faster, but then you start getting cluttered with these really specific aliases.

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

Updated to allow bookmarking arbitrary filepaths:

#!/bin/sh

path=$PWD/$2
if [ $1 ]; then
  bm=$1
else
  bm=`basename "$PWD"`
fi

ln -Ts "$path" ~/j/"$bm" && echo bookmarked $path: $bm

Using `v() { vim ~/j/"$1"; }` turns off tab completion, so instead I'm using `alias j='cd ~/j'` to quickly 'jump' to my symlink folder. I also aliased v to vim, since that just seems obvious, so now if I want to edit my bash aliases, I type:
j<Enter>v ba

The core of this little program is pretty much done, although the accessory functions could be improved with programmable completion, to shave off the j<Enter> keystrokes.

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

A very simple one, but this one saves me a lot of time every now and then. I use it to extract tvshows downloaded as multiple rar parts.

It just recursively searches for *.rar files and extracts them to the current folder.


#!/bin/bash

for i in test `find . -name '*.rar'`
do
    unrar e $i
done

Theres one problem with it that I know of, but I didnt feel the need to fix this so far. Im not sure how this will behave with tvshows packed as part01.rar, part02.rar ... partXY.rar instead of file.r00 file.r01 file.rar.
