This picture was related to spirituality.

The inner circle is growth and it has 2 section.
The left section has few points as –

  • Culture
  • Value
  • People
  • Ownership
  • Seamless Ness
  • Relationship
  • Dream
  • Desire
  • Ambition
  • Emotion

The right section has few points as –

  • Process
  • Policies
  • System
  • Design
  • Profitability
  • Consequences
  • Opportunity

Quick Tutorial – How to zip and unzip files under unix environment


Linux support zip and unzip facility.
All you need to install zip and unzip via apt-get in your debian/ubuntu linux.
The same is available via yum or zypper.

Some examples for zip and unzip.

1. Creates the zip archive and put all the files of the current directory in the compressed form.

ankur@ankur:~> cd test/
ankur@ankur:~/test> ll
total 0
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users 0 2010-10-20 10:03 1.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users 0 2010-10-20 10:03 2.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users 0 2010-10-20 10:03 3.txt
ankur@ankur:~/test> zip zipthis *
 adding: 1.txt (stored 0%)
 adding: 2.txt (stored 0%)
 adding: 3.txt (stored 0%)
ankur@ankur:~/test> ll
total 4
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users   0 2010-10-20 10:03 1.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users   0 2010-10-20 10:03 2.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users   0 2010-10-20 10:03 3.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users 382 2010-10-20 10:05 zipthis.zip
ankur@ankur:~/test>

This command will automatically put the zip extension when the process will done.

2. Now try for zipping the subdirectory also..
Here I have created the subdirector as “subtest”.

ankur@ankur:~/test> ll
total 8
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users    0 2010-10-20 10:03 1.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users    0 2010-10-20 10:03 2.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users    0 2010-10-20 10:03 3.txt
drwxr-xr-x 2 ankur users 4096 2010-10-20 10:14 subtest
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users  382 2010-10-20 10:05 zipthis.zip
ankur@ankur:~/test> zip -r subzipthis *
 adding: 1.txt (stored 0%)
 adding: 2.txt (stored 0%)
 adding: 3.txt (stored 0%)
 adding: subtest/ (stored 0%)
 adding: subtest/sub1.txt (stored 0%)
 adding: subtest/sub2.txt (stored 0%)
 adding: zipthis.zip (stored 0%)
ankur@ankur:~/test> ll
total 12
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users    0 2010-10-20 10:03 1.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users    0 2010-10-20 10:03 2.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users    0 2010-10-20 10:03 3.txt
drwxr-xr-x 2 ankur users 4096 2010-10-20 10:14 subtest
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users 1306 2010-10-20 10:15 subzipthis.zip
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users  382 2010-10-20 10:05 zipthis.zip
ankur@ankur:~/test>

To use unzip to extract all files of the archive pics.zip into the current directory & subdirectories:

3. Listing of your files from a zip folder.

ankur@ankur:~/test> ll
total 8
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users 1306 2010-10-20 10:15 subzipthis.zip
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users  382 2010-10-20 10:05 zipthis.zip
ankur@ankur:~/test> unzip -l subzipthis.zip
Archive:  subzipthis.zip
 Length     Date   Time    Name
 --------    ----   ----    ----
 0  10-20-10 10:03   1.txt
 0  10-20-10 10:03   2.txt
 0  10-20-10 10:03   3.txt
 0  10-20-10 10:14   subtest/
 0  10-20-10 10:14   subtest/sub1.txt
 0  10-20-10 10:14   subtest/sub2.txt
 382  10-20-10 10:05   zipthis.zip
 --------                   -------
 382                   7 files
ankur@ankur:~/test>

4. To test about your zip archive that archive is OK or not:

ankur@ankur:~/test> unzip -tq subzipthis.zip
No errors detected in compressed data of subzipthis.zip.
ankur@ankur:~/test> unzip -tq zipthis.zip
No errors detected in compressed data of zipthis.zip.

5. Unzip your data

ankur@ankur:~/test> unzip zipthis.zip
Archive:  zipthis.zip
 extracting: 1.txt
 extracting: 2.txt
 extracting: 3.txt
ankur@ankur:~/test> ll
total 8
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users    0 2010-10-20 10:03 1.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users    0 2010-10-20 10:03 2.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users    0 2010-10-20 10:03 3.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users 1306 2010-10-20 10:15 subzipthis.zip
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users  382 2010-10-20 10:05 zipthis.zip

6. Now you want to extract only the specific files from your zip folder. You can use like this…

ankur@ankur:~/test> unzip zipthis.zip 1.txt
Archive:  zipthis.zip
 extracting: 1.txt
ankur@ankur:~/test> ll
total 8
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users    0 2010-10-20 10:03 1.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users 1306 2010-10-20 10:15 subzipthis.zip
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users  382 2010-10-20 10:05 zipthis.zip

7. To extract all files to some specified directory.

ankur@ankur:~/test> unzip zipthis.zip -d /home/ankur/test/
Archive:  zipthis.zip
 extracting: /home/ankur/test/1.txt
 extracting: /home/ankur/test/2.txt
 extracting: /home/ankur/test/3.txt
ankur@ankur:~/test> ll
total 8
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users    0 2010-10-20 10:03 1.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users    0 2010-10-20 10:03 2.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users    0 2010-10-20 10:03 3.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users 1306 2010-10-20 10:15 subzipthis.zip
-rw-r--r-- 1 ankur users  382 2010-10-20 10:05 zipthis.zip

8. Unzip files one by one with confirmation.

ankur@ankur:~/test> unzip -q subzipthis.zip
replace 1.txt? [y]es, [n]o, [A]ll, [N]one, [r]ename: y
replace 2.txt? [y]es, [n]o, [A]ll, [N]one, [r]ename: y
replace 3.txt? [y]es, [n]o, [A]ll, [N]one, [r]ename: y
replace zipthis.zip? [y]es, [n]o, [A]ll, [N]one, [r]ename: y
ankur@ankur:~/test> ll

  • Blog
  • A good domain name
  • A good hosting company
  • CMS

india startup tips in proto.in


No , No I am not a strtup guy. I don’t have any thing to start now.

Yea but I can work for you. So if you have any thing to work/code/analyse/test/hack then let me know, that I can do that.

Yesterday I was watching the Official proto.in video channel and after so many days I liked the talk given my Mr. Mahesh Murthy. I really got some energy to think more for some idea and work for it. Let see.

Here i am summarizing the points what he mentioned in his talk, that will be helpful for me and other in future.

  • If you have a product in your mind don’t even bother just go ahead. Your idea is your idea and if you think is good then just go ahead.
  • Price – Price of the product is your weapon.
    • Never give lesser price to your product. Analyze the price and give the competitive price of your product. Your price would give the tension to your competitor.
    • He gave good example that if you are 20 person company then by lesser price you can never catch a 2000 person company, they will be
      always ahead.
    • Only competitive price will give tension to the opposite party.
  • User Interface – UI should be good. No compromise with UI.
    • bad, crappy UI shows the cheapness in your product.
    • Good UI will give good competition.
  • Customers – Getting customers/users for your site.
    • Any startup look for first 100 customers. If they are with feel-good-fector then automatically 100 will converted to 100*n times.
    • Get your customers/users from confs/events/get-together. At these places you can adv your product free of your cost.
    • For paid confs/events, represent your self as speaker so your will get free entry. 🙂
  • Marketing – He gave one statement, sorry I dont understant that.
    • Not necessary that more budget will give more success.
    • “Competence is a marketer, is inversely proportional to your marketing budget.” I really don’t understood this. 😦
    • “More the budget is less the brain”. 🙂
  • Be the Master
    • Be the master in your field.
    • Do some research in your field and you should be thought leader in your field.
  • Don’t follow the trends
    • You can almost never be successful by following the trend.
    • Trend is like end.

Wow, what a nice talk, you can get/see/watch/listen more talk on Official proto.in video channel.

Till then I will collect more talk and summarize this for you all and for me too. 🙂

Happy Startup. 😛
