The TTY demystified
www.linusakesson.net/programming/tty/index.php, posted 2013 by peter in hardware history linux reference shell toread
The TTY subsystem is central to the design of Linux, and UNIX in general. Unfortunately, its importance is often overlooked, and it is difficult to find good introductory articles about it. I believe that a basic understanding of TTYs in Linux is essential for the developer and the advanced user. Beware, though: What you are about to see is not particularly elegant. In fact, the TTY subsystem — while quite functional from a user's point of view — is a twisty little mess of special cases. To understand how this came to be, we have to go back in time.

lc-tools is a set of command line tools to control various clouds. It uses libcloud for cloud related stuff so should support as much cloud providers as libcloud does.

Introducing FPM - Effing Package Management :: semicomplete.com - Jordan Sissel
www.semicomplete.com/blog/tags/deb, posted 2011 by peter in free linux opensource shell software
Having become fed up with dealing with rpmbuild, spec files, debian control files, dh_make, debuild, and the whole lot, I automated my way back to sanity.
The result is a tool I call "fpm" which aims to help you make and mangle packages however you choose, all (ideally) without having to care about the internals of your particular native package format.
With FPM, you can specify dependencies, architecture, maintainer, etc. All from a simple command line, and never forcing you to learn the pain and suffering that can come with rpm spec files or debian package building.

youtube-dl is a small command-line program to download videos from YouTube.com and a few more sites. It requires the Python interpreter, version 2.x (x being at least 5), and it is not platform specific. It should work in your Unix box, in Windows or in Mac OS X. It is released to the public domain, which means you can modify it, redistribute it or use it however you like.

The Linux kernel exposes a wealth of information through the proc special filesystem. It's not hard to find an encyclopedic reference about proc. In this article I'll take a different approach: we'll see how proc tricks can solve a number of real-world problems. All of these tricks should work on a recent Linux kernel, though some will fail on older systems like RHEL version 4.

pv - Pipe Viewer - is a terminal-based tool for monitoring the progress of data through a pipeline. It can be inserted into any normal pipeline between two processes to give a visual indication of how quickly data is passing through, how long it has taken, how near to completion it is, and an estimate of how long it will be until completion.
