You might want to give Rufus a try. It is reported to support FreeBSD and it has (like UnetBootIn) an option which not only lists USB sticks but external hard disks too:

Try UNetbootin. UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu and other Linux distributions without burning a CD. It runs on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. It's licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL) Version 2 or above, the source code can be found on GitHub. Here's a screenshot of the program taken from its website: ...

I was in the same situation some time ago and found only 2 solutions, one for Windows one for Linux (Etcher supports 3 major platforms though, I tried only on Linux): Rufus and Etcher Etcher Flash OS images to SD cards & USB drives, safely and easily. Etcher is a powerful OS image flasher built with web technologies to ensure flashing an ...

I recommend lsyncd for this purpose. It monitors your local directory for any new files and then uses rsync to transfer data to a destination. rsync performs an incremental backup, what means that it only transfer files that have changed between source and destination. It can work in daemon mode in the background. I use it on a daily basis to synchronize ...

Give a try to pandoc, a text converter. Efficiency is related to many points (server, memory, size of original file...), so it’s difficult to answer how many ram it will use in your case. Because it's not possible to answer a simple link, even if by nature, the answer is a link to a software here, I copy-paste the homepage: About pandoc If you ...

I wonder why you did not mention his other post: http://www.catonmat.net/blog/set-operations-in-unix-shell-simplified/ that actually has the list of most set operations - the the scripts are available for download as .txt.

A Mac/Linux/Windows specific software might exist, but I wrote my own PHP script to get all the data out of the hOCR file into a database, and from there I can create whatever format I want with the data. hOCR should be xhtml already. The php script below reads the hOCR data file (produced by Tesseract OCR) word by word (with word data, like page, line, ...

I am not sure what giant volumes means to you, but http://sary.sourceforge.net/ might be a place to start. On one of our systems we run glimpseindex every night. It produces an index and has a few options for setting the size of the index. The companion search command, glimpse, has numerous options for controlling the search and output.

This page offers a web-based game (which you can download) to learn basic shell cmds: Terminus, http://web.mit.edu/mprat/Public/web/Terminus/Web/main.html Also find it on a link from her site: http://www.mprat.org/projects/terminus/ There are open issues listed at her github site: https://github.com/mprat/Terminus/issues?q=is%3Aopen Or try searching for ...

Not a game, but the Cisco NetAcad Linux book/course has an emulator built into it that is really really good, and can actually grade lab exercises. But to keep it on topic, the games/fun stuff/challenges I recommend to my students are all from https://overthewire.org/wargames

http://lxinitd.tp23.org/ might fit that purpose. It was designed it as an alternative for systemd for use in LXC containers. It has simple service management, when run as /sbin/init it reads just /etc/rc.local with a list of services. It can be run as a user space application using a different configuration file. It only starts & restarts failed ...

Well, you could use make itself, I guess. You haven't specified what database you are using, but I assume you have a command that you can execute from your operating system shell and that parses a SQL file, regenerating the table(s). If that's the case, assuming (just for example) that you run MySQL on Linux, you can create a bash script like this: #!/bin/...

Usually automation systems are always complex and the more functionality and flexibility you want from them the more complex they get. Like more things, I recommend using a RDBMS (relational database management system). Not sure exactly what you are trying to do but it sounds like your want more flexibility and customization. As a rule I would use a ...

I think you might want to consider GPG & it's keys, and possibly keyservers too if they might be useful. It's the only encryption software I can think of now that's already been working well for decades, and will probably be around in future decades Can have multiple recipients (users) able to decrypt something, or possibly only encrypt a "master key" ...

Turns out, ffmpeg can handle this too! In particular, I found this page: https://ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-filters.html#eq. Using the eq filter, one can modify contract, brightness, saturation, gamma, r, g, b, and more.

As author of Delta Hex Editor plugin (nice to hear someone is actually using it), I would like to note, that there is also standalone Java/Swing application available on deltahex.exbin.org. Should start a little bit faster than whole IDE + plugin. Side panel with various values is currently available only in development version thou. And only bits are ...

I wrote a python script to make set operations available on the command line. Source Code is here: https://github.com/guettli/reprec/blob/master/setops/init.py Since I wanted it to be ready before this bounty finishes, the source is in the repo of my reprec tool. You can install it via pip: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/reprec Usage: ===> setops -h ...

I haven't tried and don't have Debian box, but there is an alternative to bindutils called ldns which provides a utility called drill that is supposed to work similar to dig. ldnsutils should be available as a debian pacakge and might do what you want.
