pdfposter
Pdfposter can be used to create a large poster by building it from multiple pages and/or printing it on large media. It expects as input a PDF file, normally printing on a single page. The output is again a PDF file, maybe containing multiple pages together building the poster. The input page will be scaled to obtain the desired size.
https://pdfposter.readthedocs.io/en/stable/Usage.html
https://pdfposter.readthedocs.io/en/sta ... mples.html

Examples.:
pdfposter -mA3 -pA0 a4.pdf out.pdf:
Prints an A4 input file on 8 A3 pages, forming an A0 poster.
pdfposter -p3x3Let a4.pdf out.pdf:
Prints an inputfile on a poster of 3x3 Letter pages.
pdfposter -mA0 input.pdf out.pdf:
Enlarges an inputfile to print on a large-media A0 capable device.
pdfposter -s4 input.pdf out.pdf:
Enlarge an inputfile exactly 4 times, print on the default A4 media, and let pdfposter determine the number of pages required.
pdfposter -m10x10cm -pa0 a4.pdf out.pdf:
Just to show how efficient pdfposter is: This will create a file containing 192 pages, but only 15 times as big as the single page. With a4.pdf being a quite empty page, this ratio should be even better for filled pages.

ALL OF EM ... :D

One cool one I'd found not long ago came to mind when read this threads title, it's called ncdu. ie: Try "ncdu /var/log" think it's cool. Haven't really gotten around to learning or using it much.

I quite like tldr (sudo apt install tldr). It gives you a summary of the man page of most commands, with some typical examples.
Keep it up-to-date by running tldr --update

ncdu has been my go-to for awhile. There really isn't much to learn and it's pretty darn handy :)

Wizard10000 :) , another I find myself using often is mlocate ... for the locate cmd. ie: "locate lightdm |grep config" etc etc. One thing recently discovered about it I don't so much like is the thing has been set in Stretch and Buster to update it's database daily. Noted updatedb and find were smashing my cpu(s), while was dorking around. So ended up tracking it down to cron.daily and just chmod'ed it's file so it's no longer executable. Just run "updatedb" manually as needed, don't need it doing it ... itself daily. Noticed often you have to do itself yourself anyway, install something, start trying to find its config files and locate won't cause it hasn't updated recently enough.

cli programs you use

Postby arzgi » 2020-01-17 17:54

I almost only boot to xfce, but have at least one terminal open in each workspace. It's nice to see, that new editors and other programs for cli are still developed.

So please share, what programs do you use at terminal window!

My editor of choice is vim.

ranger is an excellent filemanager, can preview many formats, I have configured it to preview epub, odt, pdf and even some simple docs with some other apps (epr.py (https:// github.com/wustho/epr), odt2txt, catdoc, antiword), pictures with feh.

feh cli picture viewer works also on its own, can even do some simple editing: mirror, rotate. Also the others in the above list do not need ranger to work.

mc is great two-panel filemanager, since I installed ranger I don't need it much, only use it to sync my phone with laptop.

cmus I use to listen music.

I use elinks to read news. Firefox for other browsing :)

tmux ('terminal multiplier') looks interesting, but have not installed because the monitor of this laptop is 11.5". Tried, but terminals went too small.

GitHub CLI

GitHub CLI brings GitHub to your terminal. Nice.

EDIT: the packaging isn't the best but they have a Debian buster repository.
