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 Can I read and write to the same file in Linux without overwriting it?
cat can write to its output at any time; if it writes past the point at whatever is on the other side of the pipe has read, then you will read in what you wrote instead of the original file contents. That is what makes sponge special. It buffers its input until stdin closes, then writes.
