Currently employed as Software Build Engineer and very much proficient in subversion and lately git. Had some sysadmin experience (4 years+) and codes mostly in shell(bash) but is now also proficient in Perl(I still need to Google some solutions but I could now think in Perl). I could read a python code but don't rely on me to troubleshoot it(I'll learn about it later).

Experience with open source systems is in installation and usage...most familiar with CentOS and Ubuntu, Apache, PHP and has a bit of knowledge in Qmail and MySQL. Virtualization experience is mostly in VMWare (the free version), Oracle VirtualBox and Parallels.

I don't hate Microsoft Windows but I just like a Unix-like system (and I run cygwin now by the way) so I'm kinda at home with the CLI regardless of OS.

Been experimenting with golang lately and loving it :)

comment bash string extraction
@AlexandreAlves, if you will notice, the one I'm interested at is not always at the 3rd column but is always 2nd from last column. So your solution from the very beginning was faulty. But thanks for trying :)

comment bash string extraction
you have a minor typo, your second statement should have referred to $all_but_last_field like second_to_last_field=${all_but_last_field##*.}. I'm accepting your answer as it's pure bash but the answer of Drake Clarris was great as well. It's actually even more compact but I can only choose 1 answer. Thanks guys :)

gniourf_gniourf & manatwork: great solution. I'm not so well versed with awk but with your help, I'm learning some more about it. +1 to both of you :)

+1 to Drake Clarris for providing original solution and +1 for you manatwork too for reviewing the code. But yup, I agree with the Drake Clarris' solution, he was trying to be much more practical. But your solution would help in case my pattern changes :)

@manatwork, can you clarify your solution please? I can't seem to make it work. Maybe on a separate answer instead of a comment as it breaks some statements

comment Bash variable in Awk script
thanks for the help. I figured out the answer myself as I was fiddling with my script. As I had the need for $server_name to be a variable, I had this instead: machine_type=awk 'BEGIN{IGNORECASE=1;}/'${server_name}'/ {print $NF}' ff_servers.db` `coz if I would leave it as you suggested, $server_name would then be interpreted not as a variable but a constant with $ sign.

comment Can a user with /sbin/nologin shell login through ssh?
@Alex: mail has a $HOME it's /var/spool/mail. So I tried @Ignacio's suggestion to put an ssh key but it's not being accepted by the server.

@Ignacio: Makes sense...but are there any known workaround to this?

comment Need further explanation on TIME_WAIT
Thanks for the reply Jander. I could be confident now that the 300+ connections is nothing and could be something else. Perhaps, it could have something to do really with disk or network bottleneck :)

Hmmm. Could that be a typo error? I don't see a < in this perl reference perlfect.com/articles/perlfile.shtml

Thanks for the suggestion Mikel but it doesn't seem to work. I tried print $_ RCV_MAIL; or print RCV_MAIL $_; but no luck...

Temporarily made /home/icasimpan 777 just to rule out permission problems but still the error is the same.

Side note: I also tried my script from command line and it works....$ echo "CLI Test"|./parse-subscribe.pl and I could get the "CLI Test" inside mail_received.txt

comment Need to upgrade svn on centos
mmckinst, It seems that the contents of the.earth.li/pub/subversion/summersoft.fay.ar.us/pub/subversion/… cannot be seen from my end. Maybe the permission is restricted? Coz that would have been a better alternative than searching through rpm.pbone.net as I've suggested
