console commands in Linux offers endless possibilities, and often is the most powerful users have to run all kinds of processes. But in addition to its power, it is worth remembering that in the console there are some commands as curious as often useless .
than indicated in MakeTechEasier, where we found a list of “funniest 10 commands and / or useless Linux “. Actually one of them is quite useful, but in general it is true that they are almost a curiosity.
gurus Linux console probably know many of them, but still always good to remember and descubrírselos who do not know . Some of them, be warned, not available by default in some distributions, and indeed in Ubuntu 12.04, where we performed the tests had to install the packages corresponding to the console shown in the help message when trying to run some them. Here goes:
sl : Probably the most curious, almost an “easter egg” of the console, and that running the command is an ASCII art train passing through the terminal. It is curious that appear with the sl command, if you realize you will have typed more than once if you have mistyped the much used “ls”. Not do anything else, but cool!
: if you want to test the power of your machine is a simple way: with the “pi” is calculated as many decimal digits of this number as you indiquéis famous. Thus, “pi 1000″ calculate the first 1,000 decimal places. If you put “time pi 100000″ will show those first 100,000 decimal places, and then the time it took to calculate (in my case, in a virtual machine, real 0.446 seconds).
: funny alternative to “cat” (you know, dog and cat in English), this command does something similar to cat, but according to the manual page lohace more options, so could be interesting if you are frequent users of cat.
vdir : quite useless for his redundancy as it does the same thing that would make a “ls-l”
clear : also quite redundant, but in my case, I’ve used it on occasion, can “clean” the screen of the terminal, which also can do with the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + L within the terminal.
ul : this curious command allows characters in the terminal stress, although its use is quite uncomfortable, and stressed that “world” in “Hello World” would have to type “echo $ ‘hello w b_o b_r B_L b_d b_ ‘| ul “.
w : famous both as the command with the shortest name of those in Linux, but also to be especially useful, since we can find information about the users of a machine, something very interesting especially in environments where a machine has sessions open simultaneously by several users.
filters : These filters (which are available you can see them with “man talkfilters”) are a series of changes to the text that lend it the phonetic accent. The filters mimic the form of expression of some accents, but are intended to be used only with English phrases.
mods fortune : the famous fortune cookies curious phrases that display when you run the command “fortune” are enriched by the presence of groups of sentences (mods) intended to provide specific citations a theme, character or film, for example, “fortune matrix” or fortune ChuckNorris “nice sentences that would film the famous actor and martial arts.
snow : Actually this is not a command but a script, so do not know if the author of the original article has been successful in including it. Anyway, the result is unique, and gives a snow effect on the terminal window. You can copy the code and run it under the terminal as indicated in the original text.
meet as strangers commands but can be really powerful to solve all kinds of situations and needs. By the way, if you know any nice command to add to the list, comentad
