Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.

Ugly script to sleep "accordingly" to CPU temperature, on loops

Posted 03-28-2014 at 09:40 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Sometimes you have a script or one-liner loop thing that may put quite a heavy load on the CPU, that can be at least bothersome due to the noise of the fan, or somewhat worrisome if the temperature approaches or goes beyond what the processor specifications recommend, and yet the system doesn't do anything by itself to avoid it.

One could simply add some arbitrary, constant sleep time within the loop, but that will likely make the whole thing slower than it needs to be. If within...

Bash quickie: loop N times, without doing math

I thought that the only way to do such type of loop in Bash would require something like "n=$(($n+1))" within the loop, with the loop being conditioned to "n" adding up to whatever you want, such as "until ((n==30)) ; do". But you can actually do "for i in {1..20} ; do <whatever> ; done". That's somewhat similar to Basic's "for i=1 to 20 ; whatever ; next i".

But it won't work with variables for the starting and ending numbers....
