Windows console applications

Operating systems : Windows

Some time ago text-based applications were the only form of software of average end user computer experience. As well as after the graphical user interface programs started to become widespread, console applications used to retain their strong positions. But gradually GUI software virtually superseded text-based applications in daily use of the average end user. However, even now there are console programs that can more or less compete with software of graphical user interface, be useful for the average user to solve various problems and fulfill numerous tasks on modern computers.

Besides file managers, multimedia programs, text editors, web browsers, there are plenty of other text-based programs and utilities for use under Windows: both standalone and those included in MS Windows distributions. For example, ipconfig and netstat for work with network, Windows built-in FTP client useful for some tasks, CommandBurner for command line burning CD / DVD or cdburn with dvdburn from Windows Server 2003 Support Tools for the same, etc.

Lynx browser. Creating sitemap.xml


There are more than few online services for sitemap.xml generation. But it is also possible to do it yourself, by means of lynx web browser and several Linux command line utilities. An example bash script employing them, named "sitemap.sh" is described below. Bash script creating a sitemap.xml file: #!/bin/bash cd /home/me/sitemap/www/ lynx -crawl -traversal -accept_all_cookies -connect_timeout=30 http://www.compmiscellanea.com/ > /dev/null cd /home/me/sitemap/www2/ lynx -crawl -traversal -accept_all_cookies -connect_timeout=30 http://compmiscellanea.com/ > /dev/null cat /home/me/sitemap/www2/traverse.dat >> /home/me/sitemap/www/traverse.dat cat /home/me/sitemap/www/traverse.dat | sed -e 's/\<www\>\.//g' | sort | uniq > /home/me/sitemap/sitemap/sitemap.xml sed -i 's/\&/\&amp\;/g' /home/me/sitemap/sitemap/sitemap.xml sed -i "s/'/\&apos\;/g" /home/me/sitemap/sitemap/sitemap.xml sed -i 's/"/\&quot\;/g' /home/me/sitemap/sitemap/sitemap.xml sed -i 's/>/\&gt\;/g' /home/me/sitemap/sitemap/sitemap.xml sed -i 's/</\&lt\;/g' /home/me/sitemap/sitemap/sitemap.xml sed -i 's/http:\/\//http:\/\/www\./g' /home/me/sitemap/sitemap/sitemap.xml sed -i -e 's/^/<url><loc>/' /home/me/sitemap/sitemap/sitemap.xml sed -i -e 's/$/<\/loc><\/url>/' /home/me/sitemap/sitemap/sitemap.xml sed -i -e '1 i <?xml version="1\.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>\r\r<urlset xmlns="http:\/\/www\.sitemaps\.org\/schemas\/sitemap\/0\.9" xmlns:xsi="http:\/\/www\.w3\.org\/2001\/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http:\/\/www\.sitemaps\.org\/schemas\/sitemap\/0\.9 http:\/\/www\.sitemaps\.org\/schemas\/sitemap\/0\.9\/sitemap\.xsd">\r\r<!-- created by sitemap.sh from http:\/\/www.compmiscellanea.com\/en\/lynx-browser-creating-sitemap.xml\.htm -->\r\r' /home/me/sitemap/sitemap/sitemap.xml sed -i -e '$ a \\r</urlset>' /home/me/sitemap/sitemap/sitemap.xml sed -i '/static/d' /home/me/sitemap/sitemap/sitemap.xml echo "...Done" After the bash script file is prepared: "chmod +x sitemap.sh" to make it executable. Download sitemap.sh in sitemap.sh.tar.gz archive ( After downloading and unpacking it, put a web site name with "www" instead of http://www.compmiscellanea.com/ and a web site name without "www" instead of http://compmiscellanea.com/ in the file. Replace "static" in the last line of the file by a string unnecessary links should possess to be removed. Then "chmod +x sitemap.sh". Then run sitemap.sh ). Commentary Download sitemap2.sh with line by line commentary in sitemap2.sh.tar.gz archive. Before running the bash script, three folders should be created. Since lynx browser may miss some links if a web site domain name to be crawled is put with or without "www", bash script runs lynx twice, crawling the web site by its name with "www" and crawling the web site by its name without "www". The two result files are put into two of these separate folders, here they are "/home/me/sitemap/www/" and "/home/me/sitemap/www2/". And "/home/me/sitemap/sitemap/" is for sitemap.xml created in the end. 1. Path to bash: #!/bin/bash 2. Going to a folder - lynx browser is going to put there the files obtained from crawling a web site with "www" in its name: cd /home/me/sitemap/www/ 3. Running lynx browser to crawl a web site.
