I’m a professional software engineer with a B.S. in Computer Science who loves building easy-to-use, functional software that’s backed by elegant, maintainable code. When not coding, I often dabble in photography. I have a passion for technology, cinema, cars, great design, tea, and “useless” facts.

The question of whether a computer can think is no more interesting than the question of whether a submarine can swim. — E. W. Dijkstra

comment Difference between 'man ls' and 'ls --help'?
@holygeek This is what I mean. I also forget which is system calls, libraries, etc. I'm probably getting a bit carried away for a comment, though.

@holygeek Do you happen to know how to find the names of each manual section from the terminal? I feel like I used to know and now it's escaping me and I can't find it in man man.
