- Automated update of md5sum files in a directory tree (2008-09-14)
I use this tool to maintain the
on my file server. The idea is to have a file called
md5sum in each directory which holds checksums of all
files in this directory. This tool reports where new files where
added, where files where removed, optionnally checks whether the
hashes in the
md5sum files are still correct
-c option) or even automatically updates them
-u). Collective exclusion of files is supported by
specifying a regular expression. Thanks to Lukas
Beeler, there is now also a manual page. The latest unstable
version can be found in the Subversion repository.
- TFT test pictures (2007-12-09)
I use these pictures to test TFT's for faulty pixels. First use the
white and black one to locate such pixels, then use the RGB pictures
to find out which subpixels ceased to work. The 'check'-picture is for
tuning the AD-conversion in the TFT.
- Mutt query for palm database (2007-12-09; md5sum: 18ec9f3195fd5f61238eac3714d4b592)
This perl script converts your palm address database into a format
. The output is either in
the alias-format (suitable for sourceing in your
at starttime) or in the query-format (takes a regexp and outputs
only the matching records).
- viname (2009-03-15; md5sum: 0b4f115b29e515e74b6005f63f9735f4)
Whenever I had to rename a lot of files I had to use either
or a complicated for loop in the shell. So I wrote
a little script called viname. viname takes the filenames given at the
command line and writes them into a temporary file which can be edited
with your favourite editor (e.g. vim). After saving and exiting,
viname reads the temporary file line by line and renames all the files.
