New Tool: headtail.py

Filed under: My Software — Didier Stevens @ 22:22

Someone asked me what this headtail command was that I’ve used a couple of times in my blog posts, like in this screenshot:

It’s a tool that I wrote (what else ;-)) to help me create screenshots of command-line output. It’s the combination of the well-known head and tail Unix command: headtail takes a text file as input (it accepts stdin too) and outputs the first 10 lines (head) and the last 10 (tail) of its input, with a … line in between. Like with head and tail, option -n can be used to choose the number of lines.
