The book I'm reading through (it's much easier to read a book than
it is online documentation) is based on AT&T Unix System V and
Berkley Unix. It identifies differences between those two by using a
percent sign to indicate Berkley only.
Anyways, someone else provided another link to another Linux...
Olaf Schmidt is a well-respected German fellow that participates in
the VB6 newsgroups and he stated the following...
"Ubuntu is a Debian-based distro, wich wraps some
things in a way, that they don't work as in the "Original"
(e.g. a "crippled" root-acount, or the not so original
"I can recommend using Sidux, wich is based on the
top-actual debian-branch 'Sid' and comes with the
(somewhat more Windows-like) Desktop-Manager
"The great thing about Sidux is, that it works as a
Live-DC (you download an ISO-Image, wich you
can bind directly as "CD-Rom-Drive" to a Virtual-
Machine, but you can also burn the ISO-Image
to a CD-R and boot a complete working Linux-OS
(including Office and auto-detection of all Hardware)
from your CD-Rom-Drive within ca. 2 minutes."
: It still exists in Linux, but most people use a more powerful version
: named 'less'. In addition to the usual navigation keys, such as page up,
: page down, home, end, and the cursor keys, one can search for a
: text string, move forward of backward by a specific number of lines,
: or move to a specific line number. The command 'man less' explains it
: all. Incidentally, the 'man' command uses the same keys.
Thanks. I found some information about stty and tset...
# set the erase and kill characters
# stty (BOURNE shell)
$ stty erase \^H kill \^X
# set the erase and kill characters on a Berkley system
# tset (Berkley systems)
% tset -e^H -k^X
Erase is set to Ctrl-H
Kill is set to Ctrl-X
The book also mentions that most "Unix" systems have "learn" command
and they give an acronym to it (CAI). So time to play with those things.
I think some folks here might find the sidux link above useful. I haven't
downloaded that yet, but it sure sounds interesting. Give thanks to Olaf
Schmidt for that.

I had a hard day at the office and I wanted to laugh a little bit but
Betov didn't post today. I am disappointed.
Please Betov, post something. I need to laugh.

There you go! I've found "Guide to UNIX Using Linux" extremely
helpful. Also, a pocket command reference is priceless.

Well, before you jump to another ship of the fleet, are you going to
tell us if those external drives worked?

As of version 7, Fedora also has this capability.

Yes? The RadAsm Resources Editor and Sources Editors are
in the very same DLL?
What else did you wrote, minion? The Window with a Menu?
Good. Mmmmm... no: Not _that_ good.
But you were right with doing it, because Ketilo had no
time to follow up with the HLA incompatible versions that
are released every now and then.
