Linux master?


#1

Hi everyone,

This is kind of an odd request for the forums, but I was wondering if there are any people on here who have some experience in Linux. I’m stuck on an independent project that requires piping, and I was wondering if anyone would be willing to help me out? Please dm me if you feel you can help out.

Thanks!

Which programming language?


#3

command line linux…? Like terminal.


#4

generally you direct the standard out pipe of one program into stdinput of another… Looks like this:

% ls | more

which would then take the output of one program and feed it into another. ls would list the files in the directory and feed it into a pager (more or less :slight_smile: )


#5

@DRow does the above post appear bot-like to you?


#6

Is this even Vex related?


#7

It’s not directly VEX related, but the post is in the “community” section. I DM’ed the OP. I haven’t heard anything back yet, but I’m certainly happy to help. Though, of course, he/she may already have an answer.

As to it being spam like: it could be, but it seems unlikely. Fishing (or even “phishing”) for Linux people? The account was started 7 weeks ago and has only one other post outside this thread. But it didn’t look like a spammy-phishy thingy, so I’ll take the chance that I might actually be able to help somebody.


#8

The OP was asking a question from like-minded members of the community - happy to help. Pretty legit.

The spam-bot pushing people to a MS Office link is clearly a phishing scheme. There are other posts that have been removed by Drow .


#9

Thanks, I missed the MS Office link apparently.


#10

In contact with @skate17.

And the obligatory:

Seems legit.

But the request is definitely legitimate. And it’s something I can help with.
