gtsh: how to use Google Translate without touching a web browser

Posted 08-09-2011 at 05:49 PM by MrCode
Updated 08-09-2011 at 05:49 PM by MrCode ("Transhlate"? WTF? :p)

I present "gtsh" (Google Translate for the SHell), a tiny(!) shell script that acts as a frontend to Google Translate:

if test -z $3; then
	echo "Usage: $0 \"<str>\" <lang1> <lang2>"
	echo "Translates string \"<str>\" from <lang1> to <lang2>"
	echo "(CLI frontend to Google Translate)"
	wget -qO- "$1&langpair=$2|${3:-$3}"

Yesterday, just like always I was slacking around the net and decided to look into Linux development history. So, I took 0.01 sources and started looking through it.

Well, he was born a real hardcore hacker, there's no way he couldn't make it
Just looking at these sources is a pleasure.
I also found this thread, to help you building/running Linux 0.01 easier:...

7 reasons why Ubuntu is so successful

Posted 07-06-2011 at 04:01 AM by dEnDrOn

1) A good start: Ubuntu started with a strong background. It wasn’t “yet another” distribution, it was a distribution that had a vision and enough people and money behind it to support that vision.

2) Easy and straightforward installation: From the text-based installer of the first few versions, to the point&click installer of today, ubuntu always had a very straightforward and simple installation. Every step of the installer was explained in a short, yet clear manner that made...

Yea, sort of weird post again, nevertheless, I'll publish this.
I'm worried much about Japan.

I wish everyone will be safe there. I wish this sort of <insert_your_definition> will never ever happen to their place again, and I wish they restore quickly, to even greater state in which Japan ever was before!
