comment Using zsh's line editor to wrap around subprocesses
Ok, I was just trying to help, as I see your question hasn't been answered in over a year. Sorry my comment wasn't good enough.

comment Using zsh's line editor to wrap around subprocesses
Have you looked at the manual for zsh - cs.elte.hu/zsh-manual/zsh_14.html? - I don't quite understand your question, but Googled the title, and found that page. It might help, but I don't know.

comment Running Visual Studio 2010 in Linux
I think doing it that way will consume more resources, but may be your only option, unless you are willing to try a different version of Linux. I will try this MS Linux, but not sure.

comment Console utility to know how disk space is distributed?
I think I may be more confused as to why people upvote the question, when it doesn't make sense.

comment Changing the IP Address in Solaris 11
Thank you for this, but it is all sorted now. I used the GUI to do it all. But it looks like this would've worked too!

comment Removed apt-get from Ubuntu
Haha, shame man. I agree with @MrLister, maybe the Ubuntu CD has something to repair all broken / missing files on your system.

comment Extracting / Installing a TAR file
I know what a simple ls is, that will show a simple list of all files and folders in that folder. I didn't try any of this, as I did not know any of this before asking, hence why I asked in the first place.

comment Extracting / Installing a TAR file
Is that file-list 2>&1 a file / directory path? Where do the files go after extracting? It has been a while since I last did this, and forgot how I did it last time.

comment /usr/include/stdio.h:140: parse error before `__gnuc_va_list'
Yes, I have just made a simple Hello World! program, and has generated the same errors. I will add to my question what the contents is of the hello.c file and the gcc -v hello.c.

comment /usr/include/stdio.h:140: parse error before `__gnuc_va_list'
I'm sorry @Gilles, My company won't allow me to add the contents of the .c file. I am trying to reinstall the gcc compiler now. I uninstalled the other one, in case it might've been corrupt, but now I tried to tar xvzf gcc-2.95.2pl1-dist.tar.gz, and it won't work .... great! (no it's not great)

Then using scoadmin software I installed gcc.

comment /usr/include/stdio.h:140: parse error before `__gnuc_va_list'
Right @Gilles, I can't exactly remember, but I found out with my other questions. I used WinSCP (SSH) to copy a .tar.gz file to my /u/test/installgnu/gcc/ folder. I then went into the terminal, using PuTTY, and un-tarred the file. tar xzvf gcc-2.95.2pl1-dist.tar.gz - I seriously can't remember if I used the 2.95.2pl1-dist... or the 12.95.2pl1-VOLS.tar`. I typed gcc -v and got this back: /usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/i386-pc-sco3.2v5.0.5/2.95.2/specs gcc version 2.95.2 19991024 (release). Does that help?

comment /usr/include/stdio.h:140: parse error before `__gnuc_va_list'
Thanks @Gilles, I remember now too. But I think I got it installed, as when I type gcc it shows: gcc: No input files. So I think it is installed now.

comment /usr/include/stdio.h:140: parse error before `__gnuc_va_list'
So should the path say: gcc -I. -I/opt/K/SKUNK99/...? Sorry, I'm just confused.

Thank you for that, I did that, and this is what is now returned (better): bash-3.1$ gcc -I. -I../opt/K/SKUNK99/Gcc/2.95.2pl1/usr/local/include/g++-3/ program.c program.c:19: vcl.h: No such file or directory program.c:22: windows.h: No such file or directory program.c:69: stdafx.h: No such file or directory

I added the stty intr '^C' to my .profile (as a test user - /u/test/.profile) and logged off and back on, and it is back to the old problem.

@paxdiablo: it sure looks like you are an SO guy, whoa! Thanks again. So I have just done stty intr '^C', will that stay when I log off? Or do I need to add it to my .profile as well?
