Hi Shruggy, wow. You nailed it, then the profile says it all.

Basically, a tech professional would at least know how to phrase sentences in a different way when asking for help.

Everyone in posts #13 - #16:

How do we even know that stackoverflow profile belongs to this OP?

But assuming that is really so...

OP clearly said that they're older than 17 - the stackoverflow profile pic seems to corroborate that.
And what is the "lie" supposed to be? That they said they're not in school anymore, but studying computer science instead?
In my part of the world it is perfectly normal to say it like that - school ends when you're 16-18 years old, everything after that is called studying.

Hello everyone. I want to thank all the people that really try to help me. Some of you are more concentrated on finding who am I, and how I have dared to ask some questions instead of trying to help someone. That profile's not mine. Has you can see my name is Danut, It's from Daniel, I'm from Romania (nice to meet you), my English it's not my native language, I have 29 years, I'm a nurse, I'm not working with computers every day although I was in love with them few years ago, but life took me in other direction. I have rediscovered Linux just one month ago. My father used to 'play' with this few years ago. So I said that I'm going to give a try. This is all I wanted to say. I'm going to delete my account because I can see that I'm not welcome here. I hope everyone will have a good life and don't forget to stay safe. Pace

I hope you don't delete your account or stop reading the forum just because some people don't understand the difficulty of using a foreign language to communicate in.

There are many others here who will help you to get an understanding of how to learn about Linux.

P.S. Fill in your 'location' on your profile page, so that others will know that English is not your first language.

I cannot speak for all the others but here is my evaluation process in this matter:
  1. The question clearly sounds like a homework question. It does not matter if they do not call it "homework in university/college. While it is permissable to seek help for homework assignments, posting it verbatim and expecting us to do the assignment is against the rules.
  2. OP claims that those questions are taken from a tutorial but has failed/refused to provide a link to the tutorial on more than one occasion now.
  3. He claims that he is just a beginner. Those, however, are not commands that one would find in a beginner's tutorial. It is not entirely unreasonable to expect that a beginner would start with a beginner's tutorial. This unusually steep learning curve is consistent with an academic pace of teaching -> homework.
  4. There is also little chance that those commands are taken from a site that claims "N useful commands everyone must know about" or something like that. Those commands are too specific and "grep -r ‘‘log’’ /var/log | cut -d : -f 1 | sort | uniq" in particular is not useful at all. It will match log, logs, dialog, logarithms, analog and many more. This is not a command that would have been featured on aforementioned site. It is, however, well suited as an academic exercise.
  5. In spite of all, OP actually has been given useful advice and directed to resources that will help him understand those commands. He still showed no effort.
  6. Finally, shruggy found OP's profile on SO where he asked about the exact command as in my point 4) his 2.) point, just a few days ago. The question was quickly dismissed.

As you see, finding OP's other profile was just the last link in a long chain of tell-tale signs. At this point I just cannot give him the benefit of the doubt anymore.

Dismissed as in deleted? I cannot find it, following shruggy's link.

Good thing it was cached. Looks like we may have to start taking screenshots on similar occasions in the future.

@anon041,

You are absolutely most welcome here in LQ.

Many forums contain varied personalities, and I would not let those who feel it is adamant to try to link questions from different forums to this one, detract you from continued participation.

There are no LQ rules about posting duplicate questions between different forums.

You have however been asked for your inputs as well as a reference for the tutorial you've mentioned. Without some additional background, many of us cannot advise you further with these questions.

If you wish to explore some details helping your questions, then please concentrate on those and please provide some updates about what you've tried and where you're stuck, or describe what didn't happen correctly when you tried these commands.

That one goes through a lot of steps to produce a pretty boring result. (At least it was boring on my desktop system.)

Cheers...

Okay so much for the grumbling, here's my 2 cents, hopefully it will be helpful to you:

Check out links below if you're really interested to find out more:
1. sort -n << toto > file.txt 2>&1
https://hhstokes.people.uic.edu/hhstokes/help/sort.txt

2. ls -l | grep jpg | wc -l > nb_jpg.txt 2> e.log
there are 3 commands on it, which are pipe to another command for processing.

For grep, just search the web like for example: basic "grep" examples

Read about wc here:
https://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepub...lities/wc.html

Don't try to learn all the combine commands in one go, it would be better to learn what each command does. and how it will behave when combined or pipe to another command.

One step at a time;

Check also the web about: Linux redirect operators

Good luck on your Linux journey!

I do not think OP will return, DanutCo is also renamed to anon041.
