binfind - Search for executable files based from PATH variable.

Posted 09-04-2012 at 09:51 PM by konsolebox
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
	}

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

}

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...

Bash functions to list and kill or send signals to process trees

Posted 03-31-2012 at 11:54 PM by konsolebox

These functions can be used in scripts or interactive shells to manipulate process trees. At least bash version 3.0 is needed. May also work with some earlier versions.

killtree - Creates a list of processes based from a parent process ID first then sends the signal to all of them synchronously.

killtree2 - Same as killtree but it doesn't create a list first. It immediately kills processes as it goes through every level.

killtree3 - This version kills...
