Intercept C++ methods with LD_PRELOAD
View ld-preload-intercept-method.cpp
// this file is an example of how to intercept a C++ method by using the
// LD_PRELOAD environment variable of the GNU dynamic linker.
// it works like this:
// 1) define a method that will have the same symbol as the intercepted
// method when compiled. For example, the method Foo::getValue()
// defined here has the mangled symbol "_ZNK3Foo8getValueEv".
// tools like nm, objdump or readelf can display the symbols of
// binaries. note that depending on compiler and linker options,

Amazon Cloud Player Download Bookmarklet
View amazon-cloud-player-download.js
// I wrote this bookmarklet because Amazon has ended Linux support for downloading MP3s,
// and now I have to download songs separately through Amazon Cloud Player.
// This bookmarklet helps a bit with this, but it's far from perfect.
// When a list of songs is shown in Amazon Cloud Player, it clicks the song checkbox and
// the download button separately for each song, while waiting a few seconds in between songs.
// I encountered the issue that I cannot download more than a few songs simultaneously;
// the rest will just not show a download window. Not sure whether my browser or the server
// is doing this, but you might want to set the value of songdelayms high enough.
// The script is not really that useful, but it was fun to play around with this.

# Ruby script to scrape for FM4 music events and
# turn the result into an RSS feed.
# Usage: ruby fm4-musik.rb <result-file> <data-file> [-digest]
# The result file is where the feed xml will be written to,
# and the data file stores some state necessary to track
# the events that were already posted.

Type-safe way to get the length of an array in C++.
View sizeof_array.hpp
// In C/C++, the idiom (sizeof(arr) / sizeof(*arr)) is often used to get the length of an array.
// But this will return incorrect results if arr is not actually an array, but a pointer.
// The following function template provides a type-safe way to get the length of an array,
// by "destructuring" the type and reading the array length from there.
#include <cstddef> // for size_t
template <typename T, size_t N>
constexpr size_t sizeof_array(T (&)[N])

Python script that takes lines of text containing byte hex values, and appends a printable representation of the bytes to each line. It's similar to xxd, but it takes already dumped bytes instead of the original binary data. Example: "70 79 74 68 6f 6e" -> "70 79 74 68 6f 6e python"
#!/usr/bin/env python
import fileinput
import re
# pattern to match lines of hex byte values
PATTERN = re.compile("^[a-zA-Z0-9]{1,2}( [a-zA-Z0-9]{1,2})*$")
# margin between bytes and text

Colored log output for Python logging framework. Works on Windows, Linux, and probably Mac as well.
# colored stream handler for python logging framework (use the ColorStreamHandler class).
# based on:
# how to use:
# i used a dict-based logging configuration, not sure what else would work.
