Useful netcat examples on Linux

Often referred to as the "swiss army of knife" for TCP/IP networking, [Netcat][1] is an extremely versatile Linux utility that allows you to do anything under the sun using TCP/UDP sockets. It is one of the most favorite tools for system admins when they need to do networking related troubleshooting and experimentation.

In this tutorial, I am sharing a few useful netcat examples, although the sky is the limit when it comes to possible netcat use cases. If you are using netcat regularly, feel free to share your use case.

Note that when you are binding to well-known ports (0-1023) with nc, you need root privilege. Otherwise, run nc as a normal user.

1. Test if a particular TCP port of a remote host is open.

$ nc -vn 5000

Build vim on ubuntu 10.04 64bit with python and ruby support

By installing Vim with ruby support from the sources, it is build against the system wide installation of ruby. If you already installed Vim and/or ruby with sudo apt-get install vim (or sudo apt-get install ruby) or with brew install vim (e.g. brew install ruby) if you are using OS X, remove it completely from your system to install the latest version of Vim.

Install rbenv

I'm installing rbenv on different machines so I created the following script (named to install ruby 1.9.2-p320:

cd $HOME
sudo rm -rf .rbenv
git clone git:// .rbenv
echo 'export PATH="$HOME/.rbenv/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bash_profile

一般 Android 用户都知道同时按下音量减和电源键的屏幕截图方式,不过作为开发者,可能需要一个更为简便的方式将屏幕截图保存至开发电脑上。
该方式仅需在终端执行一条命令即可,涉及调用系统内置的 screencap 工具:
adb shell screencap -p | sed 's/\r$//' > screen.png
screencap 本身支持标准输出,所以可以用管道符链接。但是 adb shell 会将结果中的 LF 转换为 CR+LF(为了兼容性考虑?),于是会将 png 的格式破坏。于是这里使用行编辑器 sed 将 LF 前的 CR 移除。
