some links on bash and optional parameters

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/11/26

Hopefully I’ve been able to integrate some of the ideas in the links below in github.com/jpluimers/btrfs-du/blob/master/btrfs-du

One of the features I wanted there was to be able to add optional switches like --raw, --iec or --si to it similar to what as the btrfs qgroup show subcommand has.

It seems possible with bash, but it is not trivial, at least not for me as a non-frequent bash user, so here are some links to get me started:

In retrospect, other languages than bash might have been a better choice for a script like that (:

PS, some btrfs references:

Forticlient “the user might login in another computer”, never found the cause

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/11/25

Could only find one reference using “the user might login in another computer” – Google Search, who also could not find out why this error happened:

When trying to log in on FortiClient, I get an error message that says, “the user might login in another computer” I assume that could mean that I’m logged in on another machine elsewhere? I could not find any information confirming that.

[WayBack] Error Message | Fortinet Technical Discussion Forums

So I reached out to Fortinet, the makers of Forticlient:

[WayBackJeroen Pluimers on Twitter: “@Fortinet what could cause this? Searching for the message “The user might login in another computer” did not get me any further: https://t.co/Bl4KoWJ7IB FortiClient 6.6.1.723 on MacOS High Sierra.…”

For my link archive: IPVoid.com

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/11/25

Nice landing page to check various aspects of IP addresses: [WayBackipvoid.com:

We offer a vast range of IP address tools to discover details about IP addresses. IP smtp blacklist check, whois lookup, dns lookup, ping, and more!

I irregularly use them to check out blacklist issues (yes, sometimes 8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4 and even 9.9.9.9 appear on blacklists).
