Additional Information

First publication was in 2015. If you order now you get the fully updated 2018 edition.

How to transfer files between computers by an instant web or ftp server, find and replace text in files, run a command on all files of a folder, show directory tree sizes, list biggest or newest files, list different files between two folders, copy a folder selecting or excluding sub folders and file names, find filenames fast across the whole drive, rename files by easy patterns, find duplicate files, split large files, convert line endings, remove tab characters from text, convert csv to tab separated text, sort and count text lines, create checksums and more.

This book introduces the Swiss File Knife (SFK), a free open source tool with all these functions in a single binary that runs instantly, anywhere. No installation or dependencies, it can be used directly on any computer with Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10, Intel or ARM based Linux and Mac OS/X after a short download.

About the author: during 19 years of professional experience in software development, Juergen Thumm faced the same problems again and again on all kinds of machines: even the smallest functions like how to filter and replace text in a batch file were not easily available, or too complicated, with a completly different syntax between Windows and Linux. Therefore he started development of SFK, and after ten years, it contains nearly everything you need on a normal working day, in an easy, plain English syntax.

This book contains: an introduction how to get SFK running quickly, a 70 pages tutorial introducing the most popular functions and a 270 pages reference part with the full syntax of all functions, with many examples.
