How does the US fix it's nonfunctional Congress?

new runc version

Posted 09-27-2013 at 03:53 PM by rainbowsally

Here's where runc can be d/loaded.
Run C/C++ Code As Script
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-script-35691/

Here's another usage example for runc.

When you want to pack up a bunch of folders by name that live in a windows partition, there's a great likelihoold that spaces in the paths could cause a normal shell program to mis-parse the file names.
