Re: Shells

I have /bin/dash linked to /bin/sh, and for my userspace I use /bin/tcsh, which I find to be highly customizable, very quick, and extremely easy to use. But writing the configuration files takes a hell of a long time to do.

Re: Stand back! I'm new to regular expressions!

The * and + are very similar; the difference is that a + will match the preceding character one or more times, while * matches it zero or more times. So, to use my previous example, both ab*c and ab+c will match 'abc', 'abbc', 'abbbc', and so on, but only ab*c will match 'ac'. Thus, [a-zA-Z ]* will...
