Our Spotlight this week comes from the community. Linux Maximus writes to say:

Hi. Linux Maximus here. Great show guys, not one excepted.

Sed and Awk are great but I don’t do enough scripting or terminal commands to spend the time learning how they work. And just forget about regex. But need scripts that replaces one string with another string so I just love Rpl.

Here is the blurb:
rpl is a text replacement utility. It will replace strings with new strings
in multiple text files. It can work recursively over directories and supports
limiting the search to specific file suffixes.

The syntax is really simple. Here is an example of replacing a string in a file

rpl “oldstring” “newstring” /path/to/file

It also has a other options like dry-run and backup of old files. Just run rpl –help and you get a easy overview of options. Very cool little project r us that like the terminal, but not That much.

And again great show guys. More guests!

  1. If you want to distro hop use Virtualbox. You can archive all your try-outs and go back to it, any moment in time. My archives contains e.g. all Windows versions from 1 to 10 and all Ubuntu LTS versions since 2004 and try-outs of Manjaro, Open Suse, Zorin, Mint, Peppermint, FreeBSD, Android and many others..

  2. Wonder if Oracle is aiming at Suse (SLES for SAP in particular). The company I am assigned to work with switched to Suse and finally dropped Oracle in favor of Hana, maybe this would give them a way to leverage their way back in to SAP

  3. A more conservative way to distro-hop is to simply load a distribution on a computer and stuck with it, and then when you have another computer, and then load a different distribution for that computer and stick with it. Each time you get a new computer, load an alternative distribution.
