It is available now from this page

Credits need to be given to David Tucker for helping out :)

Simple filesharing in Linux – Python HTTPServer

So, want to show something on your machine to another user? Or want to share a file ?
If you have Python installed (default for most *nix systems) the following trick is awesome.

Create the following alias in your .bashrc

alias webshare=’python -c SimpleHTTPServer’

Now just type the command “webshare” in your terminal, and all files in current folder and beneath will be available at

http://localhost:8000

If you dont want to create an alias, just type the following command in your terminal

python -c “import SimpleHTTPServer;SimpleHTTPServer.test()”

Remember, if you start the webserver in your /home/username; folder, you share everything in the folder !

the Euclidean algorithm

Ever heard of the Euclidean algorithm??

From wikipedia:
In mathematics, the Euclidean algorithm[a] (also called Euclid’s algorithm) is an efficient method for computing the greatest common divisor (GCD) of two integers, also known as the greatest common factor (GCF) or highest common factor (HCF).

I have just written a short python program for finding the GCD.. Enjoy..

Java – Using configuration files

I recently came across a situation where i needed a small configuration file in my Java project.
Using XML would in most cases be the way to go, but in this particular situation, using XML would be complete overkill.

I only needed a few variables in my configuration file, and for this, Java has a built-in solution that works great.
Ever heard of .properties files ??

Import of big mySQL dumps

Trying to import your huge SQL dump through phpMyAdmin etc , could sometimes cause huge problems.

BigDump: The staggered MySQL Dumper

Staggered import of large and very large MySQL Dumps (likeĀ phpMyAdmin 2.x Dumps) even through the web servers with hard runtime limit and those in safe mode. The script executes only a small part of the huge dump and restarts itself. The next session starts where the last was stopped.
