I thought they open-sourced Solaris a couple years ago. Am I wrong?

(It's reeealy doubtful that I know more than Seuss does about his OS of choice, so I'm sure I am wrong.)

They did... though I haven't played with it, to be honest. However, it isn't "free software" in the typical sense of open source. (lawyers/license issues/etc...)

> find -exec {} \ FTW!!

Other way around... search path first, options second... "find / -exec WTF {} \;"

Are you executing a command called WTF or am I missing something? :confused:

I believe he was reformatting the example of a commandline command you posted, and mistook FTW as a search term (when in fact it was an initialism for "For The Win"), and then mistyped it as WTF ("What The Fuck") in his example.

:lol: I didn't even write anything to search for in my example, I was mostly saying that the find tool is just awesome.

"find /home/giaco/whatever/*shroomery* -exec mv .. {} \;" would have the correct syntaxis :wink:
But anyway, find -exec is awesome!

If you are referring to me, you got it 100% correct.  :smile:  (I think...)

Aren't you supposed to specify the command to be executed with the found files after the -exec anyway? :tongue:

> Aren't you supposed to specify the command to be executed with the found files after the -exec anyway?

I use the following sort of command quite often:

% find ./ -name "*.c" -exec grep -H some_search_string {} \;

This would grep for "some_search_string" in every file that ends in ".c" from my current location.  If the file contains the string, the filename would be displayed (the -H option on grep).

Another fun one... (don't type this one, or you might loose data!)

% (cd /users; rm -rf `du | sort -n | tail -1`)

... removes all of the files from the user account that is using the most disk space.  Makes a nice monthly cron job... keeps the users fighting each other to maintain the lowest disk space usage.  :evil:

:lol: You are baaaad man, BAAAAD.

I just love how powerful the command line is, shame I'm not that proficient at it yet.

It's very nice. He's not bad, he's just another BOFH.

Being a really good BOFH is very commendable.
