  • Emmanuel Kasper: Learning openshift: a good moment to revisit awk too
    I can't believe I spent all these years using only grep. Most of us know how to use awk to print the nth column of a file: $ awk 'print $1' /etc/hosts will print all IP addresses from /etc/hosts But you can also do filtering before printing the chosen column: $ awk '$5 >= 2 print (...)

    After the long wait (or should I say The Long Dark) finally Qt 5.14 has arrived in Debian/unstable, and thus the doors for KDE/Plasma 5.19 are finally open. I have been preparing this release for quite some time, but due to Qt 5.12 I could only test it in a virtual machine using (...)

  • Russell Coker: How Will the Pandemic Change Things?
