[ANNOUNCE] - V-tools, a set of unix/linux command line tools


V-tools, a set of unix/linux command line tools developed by me.

It has:

v-reboot: A command for functioning like linux reboot syscall.

v-write: Write string to screen or file.

v-bnr: A kind of binary/newline/radix converter for unix/linux.

For radix 64 we use RFC 4648; we strictly use =, no line terminators, no crc

v-file-stz: ASCII TEXT Sanitizer.

Only ASCII letters from (8-13) and (32 - 126) are there in the output.

Get it from my website.

boo
EOF
What's special about v-write?

Was wondering the same things, and about the other 'tools' as well. I already have a reboot command (v-reboot), and the v-write command is (as you said), the echo command. v-bnr would seem to be the standard tr command, and the v-file-stz can easily be accomplished with a regex in sed.

This goes along with three other 'announcements', which seem designed to drive traffic to the OP's blog. See those others here:

...and there's a tic-tac-toe program too.

Pfft. Can't even be made to play against itself and thus prevent global thermonuclear war.

v-write was helpful for writing string to file or screen with skarnet execline command.

v-bnr is supporting utility to dpm package manager. It is a fast 'C' implementation.

v-filestz is also a fast 'C' implementation.

v-reboot is supporting utility for s6-svscan of skarnet s6 utility. By default that utility doesn't catches CTRL-ALT-DEL key combo and just does hard reboot.

None of which is evident from your original post or your website. If you're going to make things like this it's a good idea to explain stuff like why you've made them, why people might want to use them and how to use them.

Also, posting them to your own blog (rather than posting them to Sourceforge or Github), would seem to only serve to drive traffic to your site.
