Hi Dave! In amateur radio we have a server that converts 7 digit numbers to shorter numbers based on the last 16 bits of their binary value. This is due to a 65518 number limit in NXDN. I would like to add the numbers to the database to display the correct call sign. Help!
I am writing a shell script that summarizes large amounts of data and would like to display the sum values with thousands separators. By default I just get a long stream of digits. What’s a smart way to solve this in a shell script?
I have a few hundred text files from an old research project and want to release them to a public domain site. Before I do so, however, I want to replace people’s names for privacy. So “Rick Deckard” or “Rick” or “Deckard” would become “Richard”, and so on. Help!
My boss wants to have a simple tool that lets her quickly see how long someone’s been logged in to our Linux server. I figure a quick shell script, but I’m not sure how to code it. Note: Everyone has to log out at the end of the day, so it’s always going to be no more than 8 hours.
