INTRODUCTION to the 'EXAMINEfiles' Nautilus scripts :
In 2009, I finally 'took the plunge' and migrated my mail, bookmarks, etc. from a (main) Microsoft Windows machine to a (main) Linux machine. I have documented reasons why I went to Linux, along with install notes, on an Ubuntu Install notes page
I do a lot of web page development (this site) in which a lot of photos and other image files are processed (renamed, cropped if need be, down-sized, gamma-corrected if need be, thumbnailed, etc.).
I found that I really missed the (free) Irfanview program available only for MS Windoze. I am not the only one in that regard. You can do a web search on terms like 'irfanview linux replacement image processing' and you will find many people who feel the same way.
In any case, my search for image processing replacements is documented on an FE Nautilus Scripts Description page. Writing Nautilus scripts more than 'filled the bill'.
After developing image processing Nautilus scripts, I accumulated other types of handy Nautilus scripts, much of whose source code is accessible via the FE Nautilus Scripts Description page, mentioned above. The FE Nautilus Scripts are categorized into groups which are put in subdirectories of the directory $HOME/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts.
The names of those subdirectories are the 'group names' or 'category names' seen in the FE Nautilus Scripts menu(s). Here is an (old) image of the original group names in an original FE Nautilus Scripts menu.
In particular, I have accumulated a small family of 'EXAMINE FILES' scripts, as seen in this (old) image of the 'EXAMINEfiles' group.
Just below is a list of links to the source code of many of the FE 'EXAMINEfiles' scripts.
The names of the scripts are fairly descriptive of what they are meant to do. The comments in the scripts provide more detail on the purpose and methods of each script. Furthermore ...
The four-part naming convention used for the FE Nautilus Scripts is explained on a FE Nautilus Scripts Naming Convention page.
Be aware of the warnings and considerations posted on my FE Nautilus Scripts Description page.

How the code samples are presented - and other notes :
Use the list-of-links (above) to go directly to the source code images. Scroll down this page to look for keywords of interest.
Alternatively, use the 'Find text' option of your web browser to look for keywords on this page. For example, when looking for examples of scripts using the 'diff' or 'sdiff' command, use keyword 'diff' --- or when looking for scripts that use the FE 'xpg' text-file browser utility, use keyword 'xpg'.
