I learned some python (finally), and that it's possible to search youtube with it.

I learned that Emacs is not an editor or even an IDE. I had considered it the latter. It is really a Lisp engine or interpreter. Thus all the 'extensions', of which the editor is just one.

perl's -F option which, with -n or -p, makes it easy to read delimited input a lot like AWK but keeping the massive capabilities of perl after getting ahold of the data. See "man perlrun".

I'm already planning how I'm going to install the new Slackware when it finally comes out. I currently have a very stripped-down partial system, but with all internal dependencies satisfied, and I want essentially the same thing again. However I don't want all the effort that my present system cost me. After all, I'm two years older now than I was then!

So I was very pleased to discover that Slackware's installpkg command has an option to specify an alternative root system for the installation. That means I can install whatever I need for a working chroot out of my present system and still have the advantage of Slackware's excellent package recording facilities. Then I can chroot and install any additional software I need to make the system bootable. Finally I can boot it and install the rest (probably with a looping script), using my current /var/log/packages as a guide. It shouldn't be too difficult.

And if that doesn't exist, install "perl-doc" package and try again, (or check the online perlrun docs).

I've learned that to turn off highlights when using VIM in RHEL/CentOS, type the following command in visual mode

Code:
:noh

I've also learned there is a command that might resize partitions created under MBD, just I can't find solid documentation:

Code:
cfdisk

There's a man page for cfdisk. It's basically fdisk with an ncurses interface. But I don't think you can use it to resize partitions, only to create and destroy them. For resizing, use parted or gparted.
