Exerpt from bash documentation. HISTORY EXPANSION The bash shell supports a history expansion feature that is similar to the history expansion in csh. This feature is enabled by default for interactive shells, and can be disabled using the +H option to the set builtin command. Non-interactive shells do not perform history expansion by default. History expansions introduce words from the history list into the input stream, making it easy to repeat commands, insert the arguments to a previous command into the current input line, or fix errors in previous commands quickly. History expansion is performed immediately after a complete line is read, before the shell breaks it into words. It takes place in two parts. The first is to determine which line from the history...

The tags XML flow control tags are exactly the same as their Core flow control equivalents, except that the test condition with a boolean EL expression is replaced by the select condition with an XPath expression. In the case of the forEach tag, the items attribute is replaced with the select attribute. In a test condition, the XPath expression is evaluated to a boolean value by the rules of the XPath boolean() function, which converts its argument to a boolean as follows: a number is true if and only if it is neither positive or negative zero nor NaN. a node-set is true if and only if it is non-empty. a string is true if and only if its length is non-zero. an object of...

This XML signature validator comes from the Apache XML Security project. It validates the signature according to the core validation processing rules . It does not verify that the key used to generate the signature is a trusted key. You can override the KeySelector class to make sure that the signing key is from a trusted store. import javax.xml.crypto.*; import javax.xml.cry...

For SQL Server 2000 and above, there are three functions: SELECT @@IDENTITY When a record is inserted into a table with a identity column, the function @@IDENTITY returns the last identity value that was inserted in the database on the same open connection. If a trigger adds a record into another table, which happens to have an identity column, @@IDENTITY will now return this value instead. SELECT IDENT_CURRENT('tablename') This will give you the most recent identity value for the given table regardless of who inserted it. SELECT SCOPE_IDENTITY() SCOPE_IDENTITY shows the most recently inserted IDENTITY in the current scope (which ignores any triggers that might fire). For SQL Server version prior to 2000, it is customary to use a stored procedure: CREATE PROCEDURE myProc @param1 INT AS......
