OS X Technologies :: Command Line Editing -- Move Quickly

Jun 21, 2012

Macintosh-HD -> Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal

I'm running bash.

I have a long command line:

/Users/mac/Sites/bithoist/BitHoist-PPC-MacOS-X   -offset 0x0000  /Users/mac/Sites/bithoist/commandLine/bins/aSunbird.bin   -stdout -hex   -r 0x0000,0x002f 

I'd like to move quickly to the last 0 in -offset 0x0000. 

I know about control + a and I found out about esc + f.  I do not find pressing esc then f then esc then f that easy.  I'd like to at least be able to hold down the esc key and press f's. 

Could I redefine a word to only be " " (space) in the terminal?  Not sure I like this idea.

Is anybody know if there is a way to switch to a particular "input source" (keyboard) with a command line? (or with Apple Script).

OS X :: Command Line Interface And B2zipped Tarball

Aug 30, 2010

A good friend who has used Macs professionally for years has asked me to send him a big stack of HTML documents and my instinct is to put them into a tarball, b2zip it, and send him that. I asked whether he could handle it and he told me to send each document separately, uncompressed. I use Linux, so I know you folks have an excellent OS that is BSD-based and can handle lots of bash commands I use. Accordingly I want to tell my friend how to do it all in one easy step from the CLI. He has no idea what I'm talking about, does not know how to get to the CLI, and did not even know Macs have them until I mentioned it to him.

So could you kindly provide my friend with a no-assumptions, comprehensive, clear list of beginner's instructions that will tell him exactly what to do to? He needs to:
1. Get into the CLI
2. Locate the tarball he downloaded from Gmail
3. Unzip it and open it
4. Get out of the CLI and back into the GUI.

I would deal with the tarball this way: $ tar xjvf ./texts.tar.bz2. Could he use that command? I don't have any idea how to leave the graphic world on a Mac. My view is that fulfilling his request will be difficult and a lot of work for him as well if I don't use a tarball, and he needs to learn something about the OS he's using. I'll be interested to see how Mac users do it, as well. Yes, I expect the job can be done in the GUI on a Mac, but as I say, I would like to expand his universe (and mine) just a bit. Dragging him out of the GUI won't hurt him, and the learning experience could give him a bit more respect for the power and flexibility of the OS he uses daily.

OS X Technologies :: Why Does Gimp Crash On Text Editing

Sep 4, 2012

Every time I open Gimp 2.8 (Mac Package) and try to edit text, it crashes. I Have the same issue with Photoshop CS5. Here is the error log using Gimp 2.8:

Process:         X11.bin [5646]
Path:            /Applications/Utilities/X11.app/Contents/MacOS/X11.bin
Identifier:      org.x.X11
Version:         2.3.6 (2.3.6)

This issue is really driving me nuts. I reinstalled PS CS5 several times, emptied font cache and check the harddisk for issues. No change at all. (aLmost) Every time I want to edit a text area in Gimp or Photoshop the programs crashes.

OS X Technologies :: Enscript Cannot Add Line Numbers

Feb 29, 2012

I recently figured out which flags to use to keep the "over" script from being horribly bland and not much better than straight less.

enscript -E -p- --line-numbers --quiet --language=ansi --color --style=emacs "$*" 2>&1 | less

My only problem with this setup is that the line numbers are missing. I can pass in the -c flag, or --line-numbers, it doesn't matter: I never get line numbers. And I tried installing enscript on my linux box too and it also leaves out the line numbers. Does anyone have any ideas, or at least know the last working version of enscript?

Desktops :: Application Install And Command Line Input

Dec 22, 2010

I've just installed the BRL-CAD application and it need a command line input (/usr/brlcad/bin) to the System - see below. I am not that familiar with the commands although no problem getting into the Terminal. I just don't want to screw this up. I am running a Mac Mini, 2.66 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4 GB RAM, OS 10.6.5. I need some step-by-step info in getting this embedded and the application up and running.

Setting Up the Path:
Once installed, you will need to add /usr/brlcad/bin to your system
PATH. For Bourne shell users, you can run the following:
PATH=/usr/brlcad/bin:$PATH ; export PATH
For C shell users, this should do the same thing:
set path=( /usr/brlcad/bin $path ) ; rehash

OS X :: Command Line - Changing Permissions With Chown Utility

Oct 10, 2010

This has got to be an easy one for the command line experts. Could someone please tell me how to run the chown utility, so as to change permissions of a folder to read & write for the "currently logged in user"? I guess I am looking for a variable for the username, since I will be running this command as part of a shell script. I do not wish to specify a username, which would make it possible for me to run the script on any computer for any logged in user.
