I started with Apple Basic and 6502 machine code and Assembly, then Fortran, Pascal, C, Lisp (Scheme), microcode, Perl, Java, Javascript, Python, Ruby, PHP, and Objective-C.

Originally, I was going to go with Atari... but it was a big expense for our family... and after months of nagging, my dad agreed to buy an Apple ][. The few months in childhood seem to last forever. A few months nowadays seem to pass like days.

comment Why mkdir -p /Local/Foo/Bar/Wah not work but cd /Local and mkdir -p Foo/Bar/Wah works?
I see why that issue is now. The person didn't update the docs in a wiki at first. For simplicity, he wrote it in Microsoft Word first, and that's how the "em dash" creeped in.

If I use findallof word1 word2, it will say find: ftsopen: No such file or directory

this function doesn't work on a Mac... do you have a version that might work on both the Mac and Linux?

later on, I found that find . | grep -i demo | grep -i sitesearch should do the job too. But your solution is just one command so it should be nicer. Do you know how to make it into functions so that we can just say find1 sitesearch or find2 demo sitesearch or if better we don't need to say find1 or find2 but just findallof

I just wonder even though Linux can be such a solid development environment, why is installing a visual diff tool so difficult? Ubuntu seems the easiest, but Fedora, CentOS, RHEL 5 can be quite a bit harder

so in this case, you mean first download meld-1.1.5-1.el5.rf.noarch.rpm and then yum install meld-1.1.5-1.el5.rf.noarch.rpm
