jlevy/the-art-of-command-line

  • In Bash, use Tab to complete arguments or list all available commands and ctrl-r to search through command history (after pressing, type to search, press ctrl-r repeatedly to cycle through more matches, press Enter to execute the found command, or hit the right arrow to put the result in the current line to allow editing).
  • If you want to have an additional (optional) parameter added to the previous example, you can use something like output_file=${2:-logfile}.
  • This is helpful in examples like mv foo.{txt,pdf} some-dir (which moves both files), cp somefile{,.bak} (which expands to cp somefile somefile.bak) or mkdir -p test-{a,b,c}/subtest-{1,2,3} (which expands all possible combinations and creates a directory tree).
  • For interaction with files based on the output of another command (like git), use fpp (PathPicker).
  • Know that locale affects a lot of command line tools in subtle ways, including sorting order (collation) and performa

iPhones, Armed Robbery, and Hacking

  • When it's time to log into one of your accounts, you provide your login and password as you normally would, plus the temporary code being shown by the app.
  • He then attempted to log into Facebook using my phone number as a login, clicked on "Forgot Password," and reset the password via SMS.
  • But without 2FA, if an account has an associated phone number, the password can be reset via SMS.
  • Facebook single handedly provides a way for attackers to go from a SIM card, or hijacked SMS messages, to a trove of personal information for the vast majority of people out there.
  • They would have changed my iCloud password in the process, and might have erased and locked my other Apple devices for the hell of it, which would have been disastrous and possibly ruinous, depending on whether I could get back into the account.

Goto and the folly of dogma (2018)

  • The C# compiler, written itself in C#, clocks in at 297 goto usages and 0.22 ratio.
  • People who take "goto is evil" as dogma will point out that each of these usages could be rewritten as gotoless alternatives.
  • We have a long tradition of dogmas, but goto is the seminal example, denounced in Edsger Dijkstra's famous letter, Go To Statement Considered Harmful.
  • The letter is good advice in the vast majority of cases: misuse of goto will quickly land you in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike.
  • When Linus Torvalds started the Linux kernel in 1991, the dogma was that "monolithic" kernels were obsolete and that microkernels, a message-passing alternative analogous to microservices, were the only way to build a new OS.
  • Torvalds, a pragmatist if there was ever one, tossed out this orthodoxy to build Linux using the much simpler monolithic design.
