Bash arrays as Python lists (sort of)

Posted 08-08-2015 at 11:38 AM by HMW

If you have some experience with higher level programming languages (such as Python for instance), you have undoubtedly came across lists and arrays.

There are arrays in Bash too, but there is a pitfall when you delete items from an array in Bash; the index disappears with the item!

First, consider this example with a list in Python:
Code:

done
touch /dev/shm/${0##*/}-ticket$n

Another Pointless Endeavour

Posted 08-06-2015 at 04:10 AM by Randicus Draco Albus

(Arch users might want to skip to the end and start yelling at me without reading my rant.)

While searching for something BSD-related recently, I accidentally stumbled upon Arch BSD. I knew doing a little research was a bad idea, but curiosity got the better of me. Their website, especially the forum, was very illuminating.

What is the mindset behind this project?
