shell (74)

Learn how to program shell scripts using bash, the command interpreter from the GNU project. Start from the basics and become and advanced programmer.
Apsfilter is a magic print filter with automatic file type recognition. It features on-the-fly decompression and conversion, and works on both PostScript and non-PostScript (via Ghostscript) graphical printers. This package makes printing many file formats much easier. Among the supported formats are: gzip, bzip2, compress, freeze, pack, ASCII, BMP, data (PCL, etc.), DVI, FBM, FIG, FITS, GIF, Group 3 fax, HTML, IFF ILBM, JPEG, Kodak Photo CD, MGR, MIFF, PBM/PGM/PNM/PPM, PDF, PNG, PostScript, RLE, SGI, Sketch, Sun raster, Targa, TIFF, troff, WPG, X pixmap, XCF. Note that actual support depends on the installed filter programs.
Argbash is not a parsing library, but it is rather a code generator that generates a library tailor-made for your script. It lets you to describe arguments your script should take and then, you can generate the bash code. You can either include in your script or let Argbash do it for you (in any case, from then on, you can forget about Argbash altogether). Argbash is very simple to use and the generated code is relatively nice to read. Moreover, argument definitions stay embedded in the script, so when you need to update the parsing logic, you just re-run the argbash script on the already generated script.
BASH Debugger
BASH Debugger provides a patched BASH that enables better debugging support as well as improved error reporting. It also contains the most comprehensive source code debugger for BASH that has been written. It can be used as a springboard for other experimental features (such as adding hashtables), since development is maintained openly and developers are encouraged to participate.
Biabam Is A Bash Attachment Mailer. In other words, BIABAM lets users send email attachments from the command line. It is similar to using Mutt to send attachments on the command line, but without the overhead of a complete email client.
Backup Shell
'bksh' is a simple program designed to be a shell for SSH. It copies its input to a given backup file. Its goal is to allow administrators to create backup-only accounts. It works for either tape only or file & tape backups, and works as a shell so clients have very limited server access.
bar stands for Backup And Restore. This programme has been designed for a user who desires to backup his Home folder each week or day using cron or a similar programme and transferring those backups at the end each month to another medium for safer storage.
Bash Heckert gnu.small.png
Bash is the shell, or command-line interpreter, of the GNU system. It is compatible with the Bourne Shell, but it also integrates useful features from the Korn Shell and the C Shell and new improvements of its own. It allows command-line editing, unlimited command history, shell functions and aliases, and job control while still allowing most sh scripts to be run without modification.
Bash.Diff is a patch against Bash that incorporates many features from Awk, Python, Zsh, Ksh, and others. In the main core, it adds the following: new brace expansion {a..b}; new parameter expansion ${var Pipe.png...}; new command substitution $(=...); string concatenation (+=); extended for, while, and until loops; extended case statement; and new try-block with integer exception. As builtin commands, it adds the following: sscanf(3) wrapper; extensive array and regex(3) operations; GDBM, SQLite, PostgreSQL, and MySQL database interfaces; and an HTML template engine (BASP).
BashBurn (Previously Magma) is a bash script designed to make CD burning at the console easier. Currently BashBurn can:
  • Burn data CDs/DVDs (Including CDRWs)
  • Burn music CDs
  • Burn CD/DVD-images
  • Rip data/music CDs
  • Manipulate ISO-files
  • and probably more…
