Software :: Finding A Program To Display Random Words From List?
Apr 22, 2011
Is there a Linux program I can use to display random words from a list? By entering words in a spreadsheet and then sorting the list in alphabetical order, I made a list of new vocabulary words for myself to memorize, and wondered whether I could make random words from the list display on the screen daily. I know I could write a program to do that if I knew programming, but I don't.
I am looking for this `struct messages_sdd_t` and I need to search through a lot of *.c files to find it.However, I can't seen to find a match as I want to exclude all the words 'struct' and 'messages_sdd_t'. As I want to search on this only 'struct messages_sdd_t' The reason for this is, as struct is used many times and I keep getting pages or search results.The directory I am searching in, has another directories so it will have to search recursively.I have been doing this without success:Code: find . -type f -name '*.c' | xargs grep 'struct messages_sdd_t'and thisCode: find . -type f -name '*.c' | xargs egrep -w 'struct|messages_sdd_t'
I want to find and remove duplicate consecutive words from a text file. I've tried working with array but is very difficult..then i've tried using sed...somebody hint me with this sed : sed ':f;N;$!bf; s/(.*) 1/1 /g; s/(.*)1/1/g'. It works fine but if i have 3 consecutive identical words it only remove first one and the last two remain intact.
I was wondering if there is an application that allows the computer to chose a screensaver at random from a specific list that you make. I know that you can make the computer choose any screensaver at random, but I want it to choose only the ones I specify at random. I have about 6 screensavers that I want it to choose at random.
List of 77 lines with the names of movies. For ease, let's say it's in a text file. What I want is a command line argument I can pass that'll read each line and pick one of those 77 lines at random, except I can't figure out how to do this. Is there a program I can just pipe the output of 'cat listofmovies.txt' to?
I want to generate a temporary random list from a directory of files and then determine the size of an arbitrary block of files from this list (say 1-25 or 26-50) and add their names to a file along with some other info for each name. I can generate a random list with file sizes like this: ls -l | sort -R | cut -d " " -f 6 but i'm not sure how to add up the sizes of just a certain block of these files and at the same time save the file names.
KMail 1.11.4, KDE 4.2.4: I'm migrating from WinXP to Mandriva, and installed KMail at the weekend. Works fine, but I have a niggle - the message list displays headers grouped by month order. I'd like the option of having a simple list (no groups), and suspect that it could be done - but I haven't been able to find out how. I've checked in the Handbook without success, and a search in LQ hasn't turned up anything yet.Any suggestions gratefully received. If this isn't the right place for a KMail query,
I get annoyed sometimes that from one Fedora release to another, some programs get renamed or put into different packages. Examples:
* Gnome's volume control applet. Used to be provided by gnome-media, now it's moved to control-center. Worse, the command itself was renamed from gnome-volume-control-applet to gnome-sound-applet, so I couldn't even try a `yum provides` search to locate it.
* Gnome's Disk Usage Analyzer tool. Used to be in a package by itself, baobab. Now it's provided by gnome-utils.
Is there a wiki or something where the full list of all renamed/repackaged programs can be found? I'm not a Gnome desktop user, so, while I'm sure all the packages I like from Gnome are just there out-of-the-box for most users, it doesn't help me very much. The volume control applet for example is extremely useful for other desktop environments (and Gnome itself really doesn't have much need for it anyway, since they have their own built into the window shell).
Is there a list of RPMs with known vulnerabilities? I was hoping to run some scripts across the list of currently installed packages vs such a list of vulnerable, to get an idea of what systems need attention. And no, just updating everything is neither an option, nor possible. My servers don't have access (nor do I want them to) to the outside world. Further, being production systems, I can't cause a disruption outside of scheduled down time, and due to running commercial software I can't upgrade some packages due to vendor support issues.
Why is it always such a PITA to find a list of md5sums for the various versions of Ubuntu. I've just downloaded 9.10 from [URL], but it took me longer to track down the md5sums than it did to download 690Mb on a cable connection. A simple link on each of the many pages from which you can download Ubuntu is surely not too much to ask. And it's not a new problem. I remember having the same problem going back to at least 8.04, if not earlier. For those others looking for the link, here is one [URL].
Would like a command line list of commands, that I can print out, I know this would be allot of pages. I have tons of books and the net, but its a royal pain searching for the right command, need something I can flip through.
I am using Xephyr to create a windowed session for logging in as another user. It needs its own X display, though. Obviously I can just give it :1.0 and hope for the best, that it would be better to identify the first free display and use that.
i just install the driver for dazzle dvc100. i tested out on vlc and cheese and it work. but now i need other program other then using wine, cheese and vlc. cheese and vlc is so laggy and cheese records in black/white and super duper uber laggy. so any program to record gameplay?
I am having troubles getting used to the new Ubuntu UI - Unity. One thing that bugs me is that I don't know how to find a program if I don't know the program's name. For example I remember I have an IRC client but I don't remember its name and its name does not contain IRC. Before I had Unity, programs were organised in categories, so to find the irc I just looked in the Internet category. The same happened to me with the writer program and others..Can anyone tell me how I can find a program by its category? I was surprised that I could not many complaints like mine on the web. I don't want to give up and go back to the old gnome cause I figure that there is just a learning curve to pass and beside there are some feature in it that I like.
i was using a serial console program (not minicom) two weeks back but took a break and have no idea what it is! man, it was awesome, too. it had a nice gui, similar to hyperterminal...and from what i think i remember it came packaged with f14.
Is there a program in the repositories for physics? I don't mean a program that makes graphs etc. I just want a program such as the one I'm attaching but much more effective and that does more than just a spring on an inclined plane. I want torque, rotational motion, kinematics, pulleys and a system with two objects instead of one only etc in the program. If it doesn't exist, I'll make it myself but I will have the knowledge in probably close to a year from now so I unfortunately cannot do it yet.
Basically (like what I attached - except that it's not so great) is something that I can visually test my homework with. If there are programs for other aspects of physics that do the same thing such as for waves or optics etc, I'd like to have those too but my priority is mechanics right now.
whenever i plug in my xbox i can't hear it but i can see it so i have to change to windows i have no problem with that. But my question is Is there any "APP" or program that lets you change OS with one click instead of restarting the computer? I know the xbox sound problem does not belongs here its just that i wanted to throw/point this out here in case anyone knows what may cause this, and the reason why i want that "1 click change OS"
i am looking for a linux program to burn some avi files i have to be able to watch them through my dvd player onto my t.v. i have tried devede and it works but the files i used were iso files and i am not sure it would work with a avi filese?
What's the name of this program? [URL] I wanna install it on Mint 9... And there's no "figure" in repositories:
aptitude search figur p configure-debian - central configuration program for packages using debconf p libclaw-configuration-file-dev - Class to process configuration files p libclaw-configuration-file1 - Class to process configuration files
I am looking for a mp3 file analysis program ( shell preferred / or X ) - something that would give me similar output as >LAME< does during the encoding phase.
Frame | CPU time/estim | REAL time/estim | play/CPU | ETA 9342/10156 (92%)| 0:06/ 0:06| 0:06/ 0:06| 39.940x| 0:00 32 [ 80] %***
any app that can analyze VBR/ABR filez - not just output a bogus bitrate, but return a more detailed info. LAME has a '-g' (run graphical analysis) option which has to be enabled during the compile time - tried several ways and -g is still disabled, plus there is not much info on -g and i do not even know if this is what I am looking for.
