I like to code and I do it a lot. I want to build software to save the planet. Passionate polyglot programmer, generalist with specialties. Code reviewer, unit tester, driver of change. I get things done.

I make free Android apps such as Programming Quiz, websites such as bashoneliners.com, and other open source stuff. I wrote a book on Bazaar Version Control, and an article on shell tips & tricks for Linux Journal.

I blog, tweet (@janosgyerik), and post "pro tips" on CoderWall.

comment UNC Argument in bash scipt
Git Bash allows you to use //my/share/is/here style UNC paths. You can even cd there (something a DOS prompt wouldn't let you). Might work with Cygwin too, but I haven't tried.

@Costas why not make that a proper answer?

comment Strip off word pattern at the end of string using sed
\s* is zero or more white-space characters. You might not need it. It seems Costas was being extra careful.

comment How can I run a specific line as a command in a text file?
No need to put a space between line_num and p, so for example if line_num is 123, then you can sed -n 123p | bash. And if sh is enough, then just use sh instead of bash.
