  3. [SOLVED] Re: Object Oriented Programming Resources

    I learned OOP in college, but it wasn't until I used it for probably over a year in industry before it really clicked. I think the toy problems you see in textbooks and assignments aren't sufficient...

    You can always try building up the command yourself by dropping off the latter parts that you don't understand to see what the original output looks like before it is filtered further.

  6. Re: create a namend pipe openable and readable more than once

    Since you haven't received a response, I'll take a stab at this. AFAIK, what you're asking for violates the concept of a pipe, so that's not the tool you're looking for. If the math.py script...

  8. [SOLVED] Re: Hotfolder with inotify-tools, loop FOR not working

    My example script set uses a different directory tha /HOTFOLDER/ since I don't have that on my system. See the $DIR variable and make sure you set that properly.

    I'm also not sure your if...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Hotfolder with inotify-tools, loop FOR not working

    What is it that you're actually trying to do? If you're trying to move xslx files to the directory you create, try something more like:


    #!/bin/bash
    DIR="./testdir"
    while true; do

  14. Re: Designing implementation-inspecific PIC32MZ communication classes in C++

    Agreed that this sounds like basic polymorphism. If you have devices that are extremely similar, they can share a common parent (possibly abstract) class. The only thing I would add is that you...
  15. [SOLVED] Re: When is the dollar sign required with variables, when is it not?

    There is a bullet point in the post about exactly that.

    Don't worry about patterns and regular expressions until you find that you need them.

    As I mentioned earlier, and the responder said in...
  16. [SOLVED] Re: When is the dollar sign required with variables, when is it not?

    You still typically need the $ with [[ ]]. The fact that there are two brackets on each end is to support compound if statements joined with && in the earlier examples. It was only when using the...
  17. [SOLVED] Re: When is the dollar sign required with variables, when is it not?

    In short, the $ symbol indicates to the shell that the text that follows is the name of a variable (which has some value, even if that value is empty, i.e., ''). In certain situations though, the...
  18. [SOLVED] Re: When is the dollar sign required with variables, when is it not?

    I'd also like to add that I've become a big fan of shellcheck - a lint tool for shell scripts. You can install shellcheck from the Universe repository, or even use the online interface at...
  19. [SOLVED] Re: When is the dollar sign required with variables, when is it not?

    I agree that the REPLY variable should be quoted everywhere here.

    The dollar sign is always required, except when being dereferenced as an arithmetic variable. This works for counters inside...
  20. [SOLVED] Re: What's the point of using the exit command with an integer?

    Because you put $Foo inside quotes, the cat application is actually receiving a parameter - an empty string, since $Foo doesn't evaluate to anything. It's running

    cat ""

    which is not the same...
  21. [SOLVED] Re: What's the point of using the exit command with an integer?

    FYI, if you don't provide an exit code from the script, the exit code will be the exit status of the last command run by the script. This is NOT necessarily 0. So for example if my script is

  22. [SOLVED] Re: What's the point of using the exit command with an integer?
