foreach-line -- execute a command for each line in a file

I often create lists of files and save them to text files, for later processing. Working on multiple computers with different shells and environments, I often stumble over different for loop syntaxes. foreach-line attempts to resolve this issue by behaving in a defined manner no matter what line ending is used -- as one would expect, one execution per line.

I know xargs does support this workflow in principle, but I always misremember the flags.

Installation

$ go install github.com/Xjs/foreach-line

Usage

$ foreach-line list-of-links.txt wget

Ideas

  • Support arbitrary file name positions by a marker like {} (customisable via flag)
