Linux services startup order in general: kernel runs /sbin/init /sbin/init reads /etc/inittab and runs script defined by this line: si::sysinit:/etc/init.d/rcS switches to runlevel defined by id:3:initdefault: which causes /etc/init.d/rc to be called with the current run level. /etc/init.d/rc calls the scripts under the /etc/rc <current_run_level> .d directory (symbolic links to actual scripts under /etc/init.d/ ) in this order: The KILL scripts first (scripts with name starting with K, i.e., rc?.d/Knn name ): "script_name stop" then, the START scripts (scripts with name starting with S, i.e., rc?.d/Snn name ): "script_name start" Within each group (KILL or START), run scripts from lower priority number (i.e., the nn in the symlink name) to higher priority number. The Upstart init daemon does not use /etc/inittab . Instead, it...

Perl file test operators are unary operators that takes one argument, which can be a file name, a filehandle, or dirhandle. If the argument is omitted, it tests $_ , except for -t , which tests STDIN. Syntax: -X FILEHANDLE -X EXPR -X DIRHANDLE -X where X is: Operator Meaning -r File is readable by effective uid/gid. -w File is writable by effective uid/gid. -x File is executable by effective uid/gid. -o File is owned by effective uid. -R File is readable by real uid/gid. -W File is writable by real uid/gid. -X File is executable by real uid/gid. -O File is owned by real uid. -e File exists. -z File has zero size (is empty). -s File has nonzero size (returns size in bytes)....

The code presented here is a simple implementation of a tab set. It is used to demo how a tab set could be implemented. The code is stand alone and does not depend on any JavaScript libraries. Multiple tab sets within the same page is supported. The HTML markup is fairly simple: Tabs sets are contained within a DIV element with class name "tabsContainer". Define a UL list for the tabs. Follow the UL list with equal number of DIVs for the tab contents. The Nifty Corners Cube technique is used to draw the rounded corners (original form, not the enhanced JavaScript form). HTML, CSS and JavaScript: <!doctype html> <html> <head> <style typ...

Variable Description SET AUTO [COMMIT] {ON | OFF | IMM [EDIATE] | n} Controls when Oracle Database commits pending changes to the database. SET CMDS [EP] {; | c | ON | OFF} Sets the non-alphanumeric character used to separate multiple SQL*Plus commands entered on one line to c. SET CON [CAT] {. | c | ON | OFF} Sets the character you can use to terminate a substitution variable reference if you wish to immediately follow the variable with a character that SQL*Plus would otherwise interpret as a part of the substitution variable name. SET ECHO {ON | OFF} Controls whether the START (@) command lists each command in a script as the command is executed. SET EDITF [ILE] file_name[.ext] Sets the default filename...

Variables set automatically by shell: Variable Description $# Number of command-line arguments. $- Options currently in effect (arguments supplied to sh or to set). $? Exit value of last executed command. $$ Process number of current process. $! Process number of last background command. $0 First word; that is, command name. $n Individual arguments on command line (positional parameters). The Bourne shell allows only nine parameters to be referenced directly (n = 1-9); the Korn shell allows n to be greater than 9 if specified as ${n}. $* All arguments on command line ("$1 $2..."). $@ All arguments on command line, individually quoted ("$1" "$2" ...). Variables set automatically by Korn shell: Variable Description ERRNO Error number of last system call that failed. LINENO Current...

A substitution variable is preceded by one or two ampersands (&). When you run a SQL command with substitution variables, you'll be prompted for the value of each variable. The one ampersand version prompts for a value and use it for the current query. The two ampersands version uses the value for the current query and remembers it. Just like you did a DEFINE myvar 'The Value' , so you won't be prompted again for subsequent queries using the same variable. To enter a literal ampersand, you need to SET ESC on and use the escape character before the ampersand (&). You can also use substitution variables with a script, but you follow the ampersand by a number instead of a name. When you call...
