Re: [Clip] Re: how to extract data from files
- Hi Alec,
Quite common is the Linux counterpart. But, typically, (probably not
always) a user's "bin" folder gets tagged on to the end of the path.
Whoever admins the sys gets to do what they want though.
al@P5Q:~$ cd bin
al@P5Q:~/bin$ cat /etc/slackware-version
al@P5Q:~/bin$ head -n 30 ~/.bashrc
alias cmx='chmod u+x'
alias hig='history | grep'
alias lsag='ls -la | grep'
