Ok, we all know that to repeat the last command in bash (as well as many other shells) you just need to press the Up key. Sometimes though it is handy to test a command before using it as a subset of a bigger command.
Spent most of the weekend reading the Eric Raymond’s draft of The Art of Unix Programming, which appears to be surprisingly usefull and easy to read. I think I’ve already recommended to all people that I know. If I haven’t, here is your chance.
All the small things to close working week. Rest of the day I’ve spent education myself on CVS again. :) I’ve came across CVS book at red-bean.com which I now want to order hardcopy. All my today CVS practise was around a wonderful piece of software called Mantis. It is simple yet powerfull bugtracking system, which I have adopted as technical support tool for our company. All of my changes were based on version 0.16.0, while mantis went to version 0.17.0. So, I’ve been porting all my changes to the new version. Tried both ways with traditional diff-edit-patch-repeat and cvs ways. So far, I enjoy the cvs way of doing things, and I haven’t yet tried branching and merging. Oh, I sound like a developer, don’t I? :)
