ExplainShell explains those cryptic command options


Mouser mentioned this in IRC, and there's a nice little write-up at Ghacks here:

Explain Shell is a free online service that will break down command line arguments that you enter for you. If you do not know what the commands find . -type f -print0, tar xzvf archive.tar.gz or iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -s ip-to-block -j DROP do, you can find out now using the service.

Pretty snazzy!  :Thmbsup:

Looks neat!  Thanks for sharing :)

For those who use such things...

Mycroft has a search engine plugin / provider for it.

Thanks E-Man! That's very handy - and a great resource for bringing a new shell user up to speed. :Thmbsup:
