Hi Shell or Perl-Programmers,
I think it would be a nice idea do make a collection of useful unix
scripts which every unix-user needs daily.
Examples for those scripts are:
- A log file trimmer that maintains log-files and looks that they don't
exceed a certain size.
- A program that allows to copy complete directories to other machines
eg via rcopy
- A small editor frontend that allows to create shell-scripts, automatically
makes them executable and puts them in a dir where path points to.
- A utility to kill processes by regex
But there are 100eds more ideas.
If you have such utilities, mail them to me. I can handle whatever
compression format and I will upload them all in one major package to
major-servers if I get enough response.
Origin: It's not a bug, it's a feature !
