command line tools: find, sed etc.

The find command is pretty nifty:

  1. find all directories whose name does not contain svn
    • find . ! -path "*.svn*" -type d
  2. remove .svn folders, e.g. after copying a directory which is a local copy of a subversion repository
    • rm -rvf `find . -name "*.svn"`
  3. recursively remove all the .pycs
    • alias rmpyc='rm -vf *.pyc; rm -vf `find . -name *.pyc`
  4. remove the pesky .pycs from the repository
    • svn rm `find . -name "*.pyc"`

So is sed:

  1. replace update_path with load_manifest. (-i is doing an in-place replace, I believe)
    • sed -i 's/update_path/load_manifest/' `find . -name "*.py"`
