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.
- a 270 pages reference part with the full syntax of all functions, with many examples.
- a 7 page alphabetical index.
