PostPosted: Wed 22 Aug 2012, 20:06    Post subject:  Advanced Bash Scripting Guide v10.0
Subject description: 3 September 2013
 

I have improved on tuuxxx's version of Advanced Bash Scripting.

This is March 2014 version.

DOWNLOAD bash advanced guide-10.0.pet (844mb) :
http://www.datafilehost.com/d/2a83f3c5




I put the reference card in the menu as well. It will display next to the
text editors.

Edit: I have a new reference card written by aragon (updated by me)

Edit: Updated to version 6.6

Edit: Added a widget lexicon by Thunor and some links to advice
by Barry Kauler in version f

Checked with Precise Puppy. Should work in other Puppies.
For some odd reason it wouldn't show in start menu for Slacko Crying or Very sad
Edit: with newest Slacko , I was able to make it show in menu by
typing 'fixmenus' in the terminal after installing pet package


Here's how your start menu will look ...

1.4 MB is less than half the size of the original pdf file, and I see that it includes a tremendous number of examples. Excellent. Smile

New version 6.6b


I have switched to a new reference card (first written by aragon several
years ago) that is very useful for inexperienced puppy users!!!

The old reference card is a page in the manual by Cooper.

Note: If you are using Slacko and the package entries won't appear
in the Start menu then try typing 'fixmenus' in terminal.

Precise 5.4.1

No menu entry and fixmenus didn't.

You might like to double check the new reference card, for eg. see the entry on 'touch'.

Cheerio,

I tested only on Precise 5.4.2 since I find Precise buggy. There were some big problems
with PPM that have now been
fixed.

The desktop file would be changed by PPM. The category would
be wrong so the 'fixmenus' trick won't work. Crying or Very sad

The card is two years old so any suggestions for changes I would welcome.
I'll take a closer look over the weekend.

Thanks for the nudge to upgrade. It does indeed work fine in 5.4.2

Cheerio,

What's wrong with 'touch FILE' ???

There may be a couple of entries that don't apply to
every puppy variant (like how to print the name window manager)

man touch and touch --help gives restricted picture of usage of touch as easy way to create blank file. They does not even straight tell that you can create a blank file with touch command.

http://www.linfo.org/touch.html
is much more better for the usage of touch.

I think that the reference card info: create FILE is good, since it tells the most practical usage for touch....which has been stripped from man touch and from touch --help.

touch(1) - Linux man page
Name
touch - change file timestamps

What's wrong with touch --help? My copy is the same as the die.net

Whereas my main use for touch is to haul files which might otherwise be excluded into range of incremental backups - sometimes it's useful to tar a copy of some of the setup files along with the changes.

Cheerio,
