Hi!
Thanks for checking out my SE profile. See my full profile on LinkedIn.

My partners and I do contract software and hardware development, primarily for Linux and associated Open Source technologies, and in particular Xtensa and ARM Linux kernels, special purpose device drivers, board support packages (BSP's), and Buildroot root filesystems.

Have a great day!

comment Why does “ls” require a separate process for executing?
@mindthemonkey: You are correct. My intent was to say that in the general case, i.e. expressions such as find . | xargs ls | grep Dave, pipe-able functions would be more complex to implement in-process.

@BruceEdiger: What a pleasure to receive a comment from the esteemed BE. Thanks! I believe that reason 3 covers your comment, no?

comment How frequently is the proc file system updated on Linux?
What I meant was that the data in a media-backed file system exists even when no one reads it at any particular moment. It doesn't come into existence at the moment of reading like proc and sys. You are correct, proc has a lot of readers. However, sys is a similar filesystem that you can comment out of fstab, at least on smaller systems and still run Ok. Cheers.
