bash sort using a tab delimiter

There are several ways to sort things when fields are tab separated. The simplest I have found is
Code:
TAB=`echo -e "\t"`
sort -t"$TAB" -k 5,3 scrambledFile.tsv > sorted.tsv
syntax may vary for dos shells, possibly as
Code:
set tab=echo "\t"
sort -t"%tab%" -k5,3 scrambledFile.tsv > sortedFile.tsv
As of this posting, both variations are subject to verification of the syntax.

binfind - Search for executable files based from PATH variable.

Tags bash, script

I've been using this utility quite long enough already. I use this to search for executable files based from the path values saved in the PATH variable.

Code:
#!/bin/bash

shopt -s extglob

function main {
	# check bash version

	[[ BASH_VERSINFO -ge 3 ]] || {
		echo "This script requires bash version 3.0 or newer."
		return 1
	}

	# check arguments

	[[ $# -eq 0 || "$1"

uuidfstab - Convert fstab contents to a format that uses UUID instead of /dev paths.

This script helps a user or admin to automatically convert items in fstab so that they would use UUIDs instead.

uuidfstab[.sh]
Code:
#!/bin/bash

function error {
	echo "$1" >&2
	exit 1
}

function show_usage_and_exit {
	error "Usage: $0 <path_to_fstab_file> [<new_fstab_file>]"
}

function process {
	local FSTABFILE=$1 NEWFSTABFILE=$2 LINE DEVICE TEMPFILE ID OUTPUTFILE

Pseudo-template noob hack that may apply for several situations

Posted 04-12-2012 at 04:10 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 04-12-2012 at 04:14 PM by the dsc

There's a painting software, "mypaint", which is very nice, but it does not support templates, at least not yet.

I've created a template (just a "blank" file with the correct resolution and whatnot) on GIMP, saved it as "ora", but instead of opening this file manually every time, and remembering to save it with a new name in order to not overwrite the template, I came up with a script that will create a new name automatically, with no risk of overwriting...
