INTRODUCTION to the 'LinuxHELPS' FE 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 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 the 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, whose source code is accessible for browsing and 'snippeting' via the FE Nautilus Scripts Description page.
The FE Nautilus Scripts are put into subdirectories of the $HOME/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts directory. The subdirectory names --- like AUDIOtools, ..., LinuxHELPS, ..., VIDEOtools --- become the names of Nautilus-Scripts submenus --- as indicated in this (old) image of an early version of the FE Nautilus Scripts menu.
In particular, I have accumulated a small family of 'LINUX HELPS' scripts, as seen in this (old) image of the 'LinuxHELPS' sub-menu.
Just below is a list of links to the source code of the FE 'LinuxHELPS' Nautilus 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 the FE Nautilus Scripts Description page.

How the code samples (above) 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 that list files (executables) in the 'bin' directories, use a keyword like 'bin' --- or when looking for scripts that use the 'man' command, use keyword 'man'.
