  • BAT file tips | Alex @ Net – Let's play with BAT files a little. As you may know, BAT files are intended to be run and processed by the MS command processor, named cmd.exe, and the programming language they are created with is very close to BASIC. The early versions of the BAT-files language (which comes from famous Windows ancestor, MS-DOS) were very limited. Nowadays it has more features and a few days ago I created a small collection of interesting tricks, related to BAT file programming. You can check the following examples that demonstrate which execution flow controlling statements BAT-file language has and show their analogs in PHP.

  • Monitor Your Website in Real-Time with Apachetop – How-To Geek – As a webmaster, I’ve often wanted to be able to see real-time hits as they arrive. Sure, Google Analytics is a wonderful package for looking at trends over time, but there’s a delay of a few hours there, and you really can’t see data like requests per second or total bytes.

    This is where the apachetop utility comes in. It’s a very simple command line utility that you can use to monitor traffic real-time. It accomplishes this by parsing the apache logfiles and displaying meaningful output to the screen.

  • Ashwin Jayaprakash’s Blog: The little gem that is BusyBox (for Windows) – As a Windows user (no shame) I have, for years searched for a simple GNU-like toolkit – grep, awk, tail and other such goodies enjoyed by Linux users. Yes, there's Cygwin but it's a beast – too big and a pain to install. Sometimes, I've even resorted to starting a Linux VMWare image just to run a simple awk script to munge some log files.
