README.md

This is just a small collection of bash scripts I find useful. Use them or not, in whatever way you wish.

#Descriptions

##bundle My version of the traditional bundle shell script, similar to GNU shar. Includes built-in file integrity checking; can use tar, xz, gzip, etc; creates a plain-text, self-extracting shell script "archive" that can be used to transport files of any type; and more. See README.bundle.

##clamcolor A simple colorized wrapper for clamscan, written in bash.

##countdown A simple for loop that counts down in seconds from any numerical value specified as an argument to the script.

##eicargen As its name suggests, this tiny bash script generates an eicar AV test file.

##hg help | grep

Usage: hg [executable] [string to grep for]

##iextract Download and extract archives of almost any type, including tarballs, zips, etc.

##kr A prompt in a loop, for sending signals.

##thinkgeek_fortunes A silly script that pulls fortunes from the ThinkGeek fortunes page, and creates a fortune database out of them. Requires the convmv, hd2u, and fortune-mod packages.

##rb A simple but ever-so-useful 1-liner that deletes files with the "~" backup extension used by Kate and Kwrite.

##recycle, saferm, and unrm These three scripts work together to make deleting files from the CLI a little safer. After one too many accidental rm's on my part, I decided to make these.

##s Run apps like kate, dolphin, etc that make a lot of noise and do not detatch from the shell with: s someprogram --options

##writelog A 2-second script that makes it a little easier to see what files a process opens and/or writes to. Requires strace.
