I've grown up with computers around me my whole life. I started programming when I was a kid, and stuck with it ever since. I came across Linux around 1999 and have enjoyed working with it ever since.

For a job, I get to write software that runs on embedded Linux devices. I do everything from working on low-level drivers to writing shell scripts and even web apps.

comment What is the Linux equivalent of DOS “dir /s /b filename”?
@sopalajo-de-arrierez If you do shopt -s globstar, it will probably work for you. Recursive globbing is a feature that is available only in some shells, and sometimes, it is not on by default.

@toxalot you can if you have a find that supports -printf, but not if you want it to work on FreeBSD, for example.
