    I found this very interesting, along with the other lists on this site. Thanks, for putting them together.
    However, I found several typos including misspelled words. If you are interested I will detail them. Here’s a few.
    In the first paragraph “Linux user” should be “Linux users”. Down through text commas are used improperly to break up the text.

    I am getting an error when I run the following:

    Command: curl -u gmail_id –silent “https://mail.google.com/mail/feed/atom” | perl -ne ‘print “\t” if //; print “$2\n” if /(.*)/;’
    Response: bash: syntax error near unexpected token `(‘

    Running Ubuntu 15.04.

    Any idea what the problem could be?

      Try the following command and don’t forget to add actual email also the quotes needed to be fixed..

      # curl -u ravisaive@gmail.com  -silent “https://mail.google.com/mail/feed/atom” | perl -ne 'print "\t" ; print "$2\n" if /(.*)/;'

      curl will need to have SSL enabled.
