What would you like to do?
Download the latest version of Quine
#! /bin/bash
# Download the latest release
curl -s \
| grep "browser_download_url.*jar" \
| cut -d : -f 2,3 \
| tr -d \" \
| wget -i -
# Create the latest sym-link
ln -s $(ls -tr quine-*.jar | tail -1) latest
Copy link

I keep versions of Quine in a releases directory inside of my working directory.
This script downloads the latest release from Github and then creates a sym-link to latest.
That way I can always run the latest version of Quine using java -jar ../releases/latest.
