Change of career to linux sys. adminview story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Greetings! I'm recently thinking of changing my career from Electrical Engineering to Linux system administration. I have always had a desire to work with what I love, but I am not necessarily finding joy with hardware lately. I love Linux, I use it every day and have made it a priority to run Linux in an almost all Windows world (at least in my current field). (HowTos)

Is there a way for Windows to return the path to a directory as Linux does?view story

http://stackoverflow.com – In Windows a path to a directory is something like: C:\Users\Name In Linux it should be something like: /home/name In the R programming language backslashes are an escape character, therefore a path (even on a Windows system) must be written either as C:/Users/Name or C:\\Users\\Name. When the path is too long it is rather tiring to retype every slash. (HowTos)

Find signal number by signal nameview story

http://stackoverflow.com – I want to trap signal SIGTSTP, as simple as this: trap "" SIGTSTP However, pure shell (sh) does not support signal name, so a trap must use the signal number instead, like this: trap "" 20 Problem: signal numbers are OS-dependent, so SIGTSTP in Linux is 20 but in AIX it's 18. So to make it generic I decide to extract signal number from the result of trap -l. (HowTos)

Figuring out __only_inline C macro used on BSDview story

http://stackoverflow.com – I'm trying to port OpenBSD make to Linux but I'm confused by the use of the __only_inline macro. This macro comes from /usr/include/sys/cdefs.h which defines it as follows: /* * __only_inline makes the compiler only use this function definition * for inlining; references that can't be inlined will be left as * external references instead of generating a local copy.
