We just started a new series of articles at PolishLinux.org which are supposed to be short howtos on simple but useful command line programs.

The first article in the series is CLI tricks: Creating image thumbnails (digg it if you like it Sticking out tongue) -- it covers massive thumbnails creation using ImageMagick.

There are a few ideas for next articles in the series:
- Using 'wget' to effectively download files and webpages
- A few ways of dealilng with large files effectively -- 'more', 'less', tail and 'cat' with 'grep'
- Getting information about your disks with 'df' and 'du'
- Search and replace many files at a time -- introduction to 'find' and simple sed/perl regexps

If any of you has some more ideas for articles about cool CLI tools, or would like to write an article like that, feel free to share here or e-mail me directly.

Hope you like the idea Smiling

Hi,

Armed with the knowledge on the aforementioned subject what about practical applications?
See my scripts for screenshooting and then converting the pictures to Internet format or anything you wish. You'll find the article describing the scripts on my NetBSD pages:

It looks a bit complicated for a beginner user right now. But, if you only could put insimple words what are the benefits and how to use your script, we could publish it in the CLI tricks series, why not?
