I bought a flower pot which came with these instructions:

» Osteospermum "Sunny Girl®" is an outstanding half-hardy perennial with bushy habit. Height 10-12". Flowers throughout the summer. Plant in a sunny, well-drained position. Moderate watering two weeks after planting. Multiplication only allowed, if licensed through GPL. «

When looking at perl.. have you ever looked into LPC? The language for server apps with the coolest OO syntax ever?

Would you like me to translate the rest of this page? Send me mail about that.

This page was created using prep and ibiza, an old CMS of mine.

Viel Spaß. -lynx @

Your Linux distro claims to have a zipgrep command but it's really awful. Doesn't recurse and doesn't like spaces in filenames so you can't use it to search an archive of MAFFs, for example. This one is smarter. This zipgrep also doesn't depend on external apps and handles special purpose ZIPs like MAFF, ODT or APK.

Is it a stupid idea to transfer files one by one using dd instead of cp or other funny tools? Not sure, but for some reason ddcp seems to perform better when transferring large files between USB filesystems and other strange configurations. If your transfer speeds during file copy suck badly, you can give this a try.

Have a lot of files and lost control over the number of backup copies in various folders and hard disks? 'fdupes' helps you find those duplicates by creating an index of checksums, but fdupes only allows limited action what to do with them. fdupes-after is a perl script that offers more refined options what to do with the output of fdupes. been using this on friends' computers to bring order to their chaos!

Djenia saw me typing "ppl" on the unix prompt and it spat out contact information of some people. He liked that, so here's my ppl-tsv people database tool which keeps data in tab-seperated value files. It generates mailing lists, html files, yes even elm aliases. I didn't add many explanations, so you better be proficient in unix and Makefiles.

Are you a DJ too? You may find bpm-measure useful. It's a minimalistic script that lets you tap in a beat and find out how many beats-per-minute it has. In fact you only tap the start and the end of an 8 measure period, which is easier to do but however accurate.

There are dozens of recursive greps. Even the gnu grep now supports -r. But there is still something rgrep can do that no other does: With the -e option it calls up your editor with all matched files!

Have you ever fallen in love with preprocessors? Have you ever gone crazy on languages like ActionScript, Java™ or Perl not providing one? Well, here's help! jaggler (download) adds or removes comment characters to enable or disable versions of a file - so all the preprocessing is embedded in the original file and line numbers in error messages correspond to the actual lines in the file. 'psycmp3' uses it, if you need an example.

Schonmal einen MP3 Player von einem Webchat aus ferngesteuert? Zeit für Net::PSYC! Auch gut als globalisierter xbiff-Ersatz.. oder banalerweise als Instant Messaging und Buddy-List System. PSYC ist ja wohl hoffentlich ein Begriff.

Und weil ein PSYC-steuerbarer Player nicht genug ist, gibt es auch noch makenoise, welches allerlei Liedermischalgorythmen anbietet, etwa nach Dateigrösse. Selbstverständlich kann man damit auch Mods, Wavs und AUs anhören - und crypto-MP3s on the fly entschlüsseln. Jetzt müsste ich das lediglich noch mit psycmp3 mergen!

Passend zu den Playern natürlich auch das Rip&Ncode-Skript. Wenn man es "rip" oder "ncode" tauft, tut es nur noch eine der beiden Operationen. Benötigt lame, is ja wohl klar.

Ein Perlist verwendet kein Serverside-Include, aber manchmal tun's ja andere. Um daraus eine effiziente Website zu machen kann man die .shtml Dateien zu .html Dateien einfrieren, mit ssifreeze.

Der Klassiker aus dem Kamelbuch, um -r und -n Optionen erweitert: rename. Eine gute Lektüre für Anfänger. Wer darin den Schönheitsfehler findet, ist gut.

Extra für Keef, mein prep. prep ist mein Preprozessor den ich 1993 programmierte um meine Homepage mehrsprachig zu machen. Irgendwann hab ich es auch als 5Modul umgeschrieben Parse::Prep. Diese Seite ist mittels prep generiert.
