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 Is there a scripting language with C-like syntax?
@mouviciel Even though the word "recommendation" isn't in there, and the question is literally asking about the existence, it is apparent the author is intending to use one of the answers, thus, it is a recommendation. A disclaimer is definitely helpful.

comment Appending text to end of a textfile
@jon-doe You can append line breaks by using echo - by default, it sends a line break; if you want more, you would do (for adding 4 line breaks) echo -e '\n\n\n'. To do it in one line, you can use braces { echo "text"; echo date; } >> file.
