NOTE == ALL SCRIPTS ARE RELEASED UNDER THE GNU PUBLIC LICENSE!
Best of the best, not to be found anywhere else:
1. Make-a-cdset == Rip audio tracks from multiple CDs to disk and then burn them in/out of order to CDR/w (make a mix CD easily, with prompts for swapping CDs)
2. RPMSORTINST == Sort your installed RPM packages and view all the descriptions in one convenient file (searchable with ' less ')
3. TESTAFIO == Back up your files to multiple CDR/w's (just like tape backup) using AFIO;
compression using gzip or bzip2!!
( NOTE: I haven't figured out how to RESTORE A SUBSET of files, contributions / advice / code WELCOME!!)
4. YECHO == Echo a string or piped output to current console and virtual screen 11 (Alt+F11) at the same time
o Backup scripts, (for Linux and Windows) - Each main directory (off /) is stored in a separate archive to avoid long restores and the 2Gig file limit; files in root dir are stored in their own archive w/o subdirs
o Backup critical Linux files (/etc, root, /usr/local/bin) to Zip drive
o Backup "raw" tar files to CDR/w without ISO filesystem (tar tzvf /dev/cdrom)
o Back up any directory to CDR/w in ISO format
o Rip application CDs to an image file (can then be mounted as loopback device) o Write raw image files back to CDR/w
