comment How are “/dev” Linux files created?
@ArtB I have never seen a Unix that isn't Linux, so I can't comment authoritatively. However, I'm pretty certain they all have the concept of special files, and I think the major number / minor number stuff is universal. Not very sure what other kinds of special file are common though...

comment Scripting batch text mangling
So for general "cut this text here, paste it there", awk is the puppy to use? You got any good references for learning about it? All the tutorials I could find only cover trivial 1-liners, and don't go into the syntax for larger blocks of code...

comment Scripting batch text mangling
@Peter.O All good questions. It's one particular example of something I needed to do. The lines will always be foo followed by bar followed by baz, possibly with intervening lines that I don't care about. foo should always become the first argument to Magic(), and so on.
