Useful osx bash commands

October 25, 2020

Some useful bash commands I use over and over at the moment and don’t want to forget.

To create a lowercase guid on the command line

uuidgen | tr "[A-Z]" "[a-z]"

To zip and password protect a document on the command line

zip -er <zipname>.zip <file(s) to zip>.txt
