Introducing TermBuilder - a Linux command line generator

Jan 29, 2010, 22:03 (1 Talkback[s])

"This is TermBuilder, an easy-to-use script that helps newbies form Linux terminal commands by selecting from options in their web browser. To get started, all you have to do is select one of the command options from the selection box below, and click Add. If you add more than one command, the output will be chained from the first program to the second.

"There are some things you need to know before you get started:

* Some of the command types must come first in your command because they don't make sense anywhere else. For example, while you can list the files in a directory with one command and pipe the results to another command to count the number of lines that were returned, it make no sense the other way around. In the list of commands, any command with a * next to it is one that must appear at the front of your command.

* The commands generated are designed to run using the GNU tools shipped with Linux distros. They may work with other Linux-like OSes; they may not. Try your luck! Similarly, this has been tested to work on various Linux web browsers; if you find a bug with Firefox, Konqueror or some other Linux browser do let us know below."
