Random (Thoughts?)

Although I am working with VDX.TV, I do a lot of pet projects in my spare time. It can include anything. In these works, I gain a lot of experience. Links to such recent experiences are given below.


Tricks in BASH

  1. Get filename without extension

    $ echo ${filename%.*}

  2. Get extension only

    $ echo ${filename##*.}

    **Does not works with tar.xz files

  3. Quick directory tree

    $ find . -print | sed -e 's;[^/]*/;|____;g;s;____|; |;g'

  4. Sync system time with google.in

    $ sudo date -s "$(curl -sD - google.in | grep '^Date:' | cut -d' ' -f3-6)Z"
