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 bash scripting - read tarball from stdin
@jayhendren when you got an empty file, you must have used a program somewhere that consumed stdin, that's why.

comment Find the maximum length of characters in a field
@suneelbabu.etl did you try the awk solution? That should work, dynamically detecting the max length.

comment Trouble Installing APT on Centos 6 64 bit
@DavidSilvaSmith what is your real goal here? APT is a "means to an end", not really an end itself. Maybe you're asking the wrong question. If the only reason you're installing APT is to install XYZ, then maybe should be asking how to install XYZ.

comment Get Network activity
Embedded board... Sounds like a restrictive environment. Can you use python, for example?
