Re: RFC: beginner level script improvement (version control)
in thread RFC: beginner level script improvement
Thank you all for taking the time and secondly for the many helpful hints and pieces of advice. As most of you will have guessed I'm not a programmer but a network engineer in an ISP surrounding so any references to other languages will be lost on me.
I only know a little perl and even less bash scripting =).
I have set up dir based version control as suggested, svn may not be installed on the server. I will change open, VAR and function naming and formatting as suggested. I will also get rid of redundant #-style formatting as pointed out.
And The print here reference is very helpful too.
Regarding the function calling I chose to call module-based functions without leading & and vice versa. I will change that too though.
Once I have implemented all of the above I will try and work out a more sub'ed style and present the new and hopefully improved version.
font (FixedSys) is what vim.common defaulted to in size 9 @1600x900. Format works in vi on Solaris too with the same display settings, also in FullHD on ubuntu in vim.common.
