Software Developer working for a regional power company with Energy Markets. Love solving user problems with code or process improvements.

Currently focused on Java as the language to use (for work), but dabble in Clojure and Ruby/JRuby when I can.

comment Bash script error trying to find directory of script itself: unexpected end of file
@laebshade: The issue is that this script needs to know what directory the file is in. calling the script from a symlink $PWD will print where the symlink is, not where the source file is. I want to load in sources relative to that directory, and all of the above is just to try to find the symlink's real directory to load other files.

comment Bash script error trying to find directory of script itself: unexpected end of file
I'm not sure what you mean, but if I just add another new line, i get -bash: script.sh: line 5: syntax error: unexpected end of file instead of line 4, so did you mean for me to add some \r character somewhere?

I had not heard of nix. I will have to check that out as well. Thanks.

comment Is there a Homebrew-equivalent for limited access user accounts in Linux?
I will use this. This seems to cover everything I need to get bootstrapped, and I'm pretty happy with it. It has some interface issues (i.e. not the simplest to figure out for a layperson unix user), but all in all I like it.

I've not heard of that tool before, and I will look into it for sure.

comment Is there a Homebrew-equivalent for limited access user accounts in Linux?
@larsks I wish they were more helpful, but I'm reaching out here because I've run out of options and patience working with them so far. They've given me an OS install that is only as large as the OS itself, with a separately mounted /opt/user directory to install and run all my other applications, and getting access to apt, rpm, etc., raises all sorts of flags for them. I'd honestly expected a standardized "web box" or something for what I'm needing, but they won't support tooling outside of the OS, so I'm left to fend and manage my own apps.

I believe it's the Oracle branded Red Hat linux, or Red Hat Enterprise Linux, but I can't be sure. I wouldn't know about whether that's possible, but I'm interested to know what you're talking about that I might look to that.
