"Useful tools in my ~/.bashrc file" by Alex Razoumov #151
Over the years I have accumulated lots of useful bash scripts, from replacing some of the default Linux commands to data manipulation to very efficient archival/restore tools. All of these are always preloaded via my ~/.bashrc file. I'll go through some of these tools in this workshop.
Time and Place
Where: Room 7010, Library Research Commons, SFU Burnaby Campus
When: January 24th, 2017 @ 3:00 PM
Basic knowledge of Bash.
You need Bash to be installed on your computer (either your laptop or a remote server). Look into Git Bash for Windows. Bash should already be installed on Macs and Linux machines.
Another tool I'll use a lot in the presentation is DAR (http://dar.linux.free.fr), an open-source replacement for the tar command. In Linux and MacOS DAR can be installed via your favourite package manager, or compiled from source. It's also been tested in Windows, although I don't have the details.
All definitions and scripts can be found in "bashrc" file inside https://github.com/razoumov/bashrc.git .
