[Delete the first take. I omitted the URL.]

Stumbled across this cute little page of Linux/Unix commands. Very nice
little presentation:

o   Linux Commands - A practical reference

Five things chosen at random from that page that I didn't know:

1.  grep --color reference /usr/share/dict/words
    Highlight occurrences of regular expression in dictionary

2.  wget --limit-rate=20k url
    Do a low priority download (limit to 20KB/s in this case)

3.  iwlist scan
    List wireless networks in range

4.  date -d fri
    What date is it this friday. See also day

5.  recode /qp.. < file.txt > file.qp
    Quoted printable decode

"India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech,
the mother of history, grandmother of legend, and great grand mother of
tradition. Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the his-
tory of man are treasured up in India only." --Mark Twain
