How to control VirtualBox instances from the command line

2012-06-05  |   |  tool  

I got tired of using the graphical interface of VirtualBox to start and stop my VM. After a little googling, I have found a very neat script that lets you control everything from the command line.

The script is detailed on Carlos Acosta's blog and you can download it directly here. One neat thing is that the VM is run headless. One less visual pollution floating around.
