mike-bourgeous / posterous_import.rb
Created Oct 23, 2016 — forked from nitrogenlogic/00_posterous_import_moved.md
This quick and dirty script imports posts and images exported by the Posterous backup feature into Octopress. Requires the escape_utils and nokogiri gems. Doesn't import comments. See comments below the gist for more instructions.

# This quick and dirty script imports posts and images exported by the
# Posterous backup feature into Octopress. Requires the escape_utils and
# nokogiri gems. Doesn't import comments.

# Videos and images are copied into a post-specific image directory used
# by my customized Octopress setup. Encoded videos are downloaded from
# Posterous. Images will probably need to be compressed/optimized afterward.
#
# Links to other posts in the same import will try to be converted. You will

mike-bourgeous / popen3_2007.c
Last active May 29, 2019 — forked from nitrogenlogic/00_popen3_moved.md
Two implementations of a popen3() function in POSIX/C providing stdin, stdout, and stderr (http://blog.mikebourgeous.com/2011/06/12/programmatic-process-control-in-c-popen3/)
View popen3_2007.c
/*
* This implementation of popen3() was created in 2007 for an experimental
* mpg123 frontend and is based on a popen2() snippet found online. This
* implementation may behave in unexpected ways if stdin/stdout/stderr have
* been closed or modified. No warranty of its correctness, security, or
* usability is given. My modifications are released into the public domain,
* but if used in an open source application, attribution would be appreciated.
