comment Use of ./ in running the compiled code
I should note that it's the presence of the slash that triggers a directory lookup instead of a PATH search. Any way you can insert a slash into the program's name is sufficient as long as it resolves to the correct program.

revised Why is sort changing the order of lines with identical sort keys?
The progressive tenses are not appropriate here. The simple present is the proper tense.

comment What is the difference between reboot , init 6 and shutdown -r now?
@MohsenPahlevanzadeh: If what you say is true, please explain. I don't think that it is true. Please give me enough details to convince me otherwise.

comment Is there a root password on OS X and Ubuntu?
On Ubuntu, su is only needed for switching to some non-root user. To run a single command as root, type sudo command. To get a root shell, type sudo -i.

comment Wikilink to a symbolic link in ikiwiki
Also, make sure that the permissions for the symlink's target are such that Apache can access it. That means at the minimum that all directories up to the target must have the x-bit set.
