BASH 2000 (windoze 2000 that is), or how i fell in love with the atomic bomb


k.. so im sitting here at work.. win2k.. in a
Code:
cmd
window.. and i accidentally did
Code:
ls
instead ov
Code:
dir
it worked.. neat.

so i was like.. hrm.. what about
Code:
ls -l
yup..

how about
Code:
ls -l|grep log
roger that

so i got crazy.. did..
Code:
cat super.log|grep xyz
and some
Code:
chmod g+w super.log
and it all worked...

so who let M$ into the BASH barn, and why didn't anyone tell me!?

It is likely your work requires some software which expects a Unix-type environment. So you probably have cygwin or its equivalent installed.

None of those things would work on a stock Win2k install (as pointed out before this post).
