5 Things Easier To Do In The Command Line [Linux]

,----[ Quote ]
| There are a lot of things easier to do with a 
| command line then with a graphical user 
| interface. Thatâs not to say doing things 
| with a command line is intuitive â no, you 
| will need to learn how to use the tools â but 
| it is easier â that is to say, quick and 
| simple to remember. A powerful, easy-to-use 
| command line is a huge part of what makes 
| Linux so powerful.


You secretly love the command line, donât you?



6 Really Cool Linux Stocking Stuffers

| Being from the United Kingdom, the week
| between Christmas and the New Year is
| usually a work-free zone for me. So here's
| a few Linux command-line Easter Christmas
| Eggs for you to while away a little time if
| you are unfortunate enough to be back at
| your desk already.


No, terminal apps are not dying

| But I do know, and believe in, this: Open
| source software has many beautiful and
| amazing advantages over the closed-source
| model. And only one of those benefits is
| the idea â no, the proven principle that,
| 10 or 20 or even 50 years down the road,
| someone might pick up some crusty old
| tarball off a backup server somewhere in a
| forgotten university somewhere on the
| planet, take a look at the source code and
| add a new spark of life to an otherwise
| lusterless, forgotten application.
| Old programs donât die, they just patiently
| await reincarnation. ;)


Taming Twitter with the Command Line

| I thought I was done with the command line for the week, but then I did
| something cool that I thought I'd share with you.

| There is a lot that can be done to enhance this. URL's in the tweets could be
| identified (using sed) and packaged as links, for instance. A bit of code
| allowing responses or retweets can be added. Eventually, with enough mucking
| around, one can have a full featured application (like those that may or may
| not be available) but made entirely from scratch.
