Have a Bash With This Linux Shell

Post date: April 15, 2005, 05:04 Category: Programming Views: 3084 Comments

The Linux world is chock-full of scripting languages: Perl, Python, PHP, Scheme, Tcl, Tk, Ruby, Forth, Smalltalk, Eiffel, and doubtless many more. To get the column started, we'll look at shell scripting with Bash, and scripting with Python and Perl.

CLI Magic: OpenSSH + Bash

Post date: January 25, 2006, 20:01 Category: Network Views: 2924 Comments
Tutorial quote: As a system administrator, I have used OpenSSH's piping abilities more times than I can remember. The typical ssh call gets me access to systems for administration with a proven identity, but ssh is capable of so much more. In combination with bash's subshell invocation, OpenSSH can distribute the heavy work, reduce trace interference on a system under test, and make other "impossible" tasks possible. I've even used it to make Microsoft Windows remote administration easier.

In the examples below, I have tried to avoid GNU-specific idioms for tools which have non-GNU counterparts. This practice improves portability of shell scripts in heterogeneous environments.

I will show you some ways that we can use Festival as an enabler to our laziness and also produce some really cool and useful effects when coupling this technology with common things like PHP, cron, dnotify, or login scripts.

How to build KDE 4

Post date: May 15, 2006, 22:05 Category: Installing Views: 2991 Comments
Tutorial quote: This topic describes how to build KDE 4 from subversion. I use an example way to show best practices. First, I get the build to work for the user kde-devel. This builds as well kdebase as kdelibs (arts is no longer needed). Then, I give some hints how to change code to KDE 4 for the case that you are in another KDE module.
To reduce complexity, we use the bash-shell (standard) throughout the tutorial.
