Top 10 reasons to start using ack

ack is a tool like grep, aimed at programmers with large trees of heterogeneous source code.

ack is written purely in Perl, and takes advantage of the power of Perl's regular expressions.

On 2005-10-14, I cleaned up some ancient cruft. The most interesting thing I found (and fixed) was the following. In the thread of Site How To (which, btw, is no longer an official site doc), some people had posted "root" question nodes as replies. Apparently they didn't know how to go to Seekers of Perl Wisdom and scroll to the bottom. So I yanked those nodes out and made them root nodes in the SoPW section. They were:

last hour of cb

    Shows the last hour or so, but never more than will fit in 64k, nor over two hours. Other sources of cb history

    [Discipulus]++ choroba
    [Discipulus]semantic mispelling erix was in the unique sense
    [Discipulus]choroba the sentence you linked can be read as question too
    [choroba]That's the point
    [RonW]I'm also on SlashDot as well as a few embedded systems forums
    [RonW]And why would eating spaghetti have anything to do with loneliness?
    [erix]heh, I didn't notice you could read that sentence as *not* a question
    [ambrus]spaghetti code?
    [erix]you've got to think laterally
    [Discipulus]nothing RonW indeed was a four people preparation.. was good enough
    [Discipulus]ambrus!! now you have a story to tell
    [ambrus]what story?
    [Discipulus]who want listen to ambrus and his descent in to the white rabbiti hole?
    [Discipulus]you left us with a 'i take the red pill like alice..'
    [Discipulus]motto of the day: So,if no all glitter is gold, not all diamonds contain filehandle..
    [ambrus]Yep. I was learning stuff about computers and how they do some of the things we take for granted.
    [Discipulus]was really an Alice effect?
    [ambrus]No, it was a matrix effect. I said I took the red pill and I'm starting to see how deep the rabbit hole goes.
    [ambrus]Alice isn't directly involved, only as much that the Matrix references it.
    [Discipulus]there is something you can share, human redable content about the matter?
    [MidLifeXis]Hmm, could someone else on windows verify that does not map to localhost...
    [jellisii2]route print
    [jellisii2]lists all the interface addresses.
    [Discipulus]verified: is not localhost: you cannot share \\\C$
    [MidLifeXis]That would explain it. Looks like and are routed explicitly, 127.0.0.*, OTOH, flows through
    [MidLifeXis]rattin smattin rooten tooten.....
    [jellisii2]arp -a and know your MAC address.
    [jellisii2]whups... no that won't work... sorry.
    [MidLifeXis]MidLifeXis is used to the entire 127.0.0.* being assigned to localhost, correctly or not :-)
    [Discipulus]all the net? and why?
    [MidLifeXis]ISTR the entire 254 addresses therin being valid for localhost.....
    [MidLifeXis] specifies that the entire space reserved for the loopback interface.
    [MidLifeXis]*sigh* no surprise, I guess. Yeah IT department.
    [jellisii2]Reserved, not assigned.
    [Discipulus]i recall only: is the loopback address
    [mr_mischief]The standard is enough reason, unless you have a good enough reason to change the standard.
    [MidLifeXis]jellisii2 - yeah, that still does not give a reason to have it redirect to a 10. address.
    [Discipulus]good point jellisii2
    [MidLifeXis]Not really. reserved for loopback has a very specific meaning - no other use allowed.
    [jellisii2]is someone routing 127.0.0.x addresses for you, MidLifeXis?
    [Discipulus]you have a static route for a 127 addr?
    [MidLifeXis]MidLifeXis has used it in the past when testing web applications that I want to limit to on-host only. I prefer hosts over ports.
    [jellisii2]And while I understand that you'd be dissapointed, remember that large swaths of ip space wasn't assigned until after 2000...
    [jellisii2]I used to have to deal with a legacy network that was addressed with 200.x.x.x..
    [MidLifeXis]Very true, but 127.x must not appear outside of the local host.
    [MidLifeXis]by definition
    [MidLifeXis]The local routing tables are just hosed.
    [MidLifeXis].oO( by local IT definition :-) )
    [MidLifeXis]Anyway, time to switch gears and close things down for the week.
    [jellisii2]Check the footnotes. ;)
    [Discipulus]good nite folks
    [MidLifeXis]Not for this type of hardware - multiple data plane on a PC? ;-)
    [MidLifeXis]I think it will be hard to make an argument that routing through the default route is a valid interpretation of the standard. :-)
    [tye]I guess I need to go re-learn iptables yet again.
    [LanX]LanX .oO( D. asking about S/N ratio has a certain irony...)
    [MidLifeXis]MidLifeXis , creating noise? Say it isn't so!
    [MidLifeXis]Oh wait, /me just checked cb60. *heh*

    [Discipulus]irony about me? ;=)
    [Discipulus]midlife IIRC ambrus took a remote camera with as deault IP
    [erix]erix .oO( ironyman? )
    [MidLifeXis]That may be, if local to the device - as far as I am reading / experienced, however, it is not a valid off-host IP address.
    [Discipulus]erix strikes the hammer while..
    [tye]I tried to set up a test scenario using lots of 127.0.$x.$y IPs to simulate a multi-node cluster of services that I needed to test together. It didn't work out. I don't recall why.
    [MidLifeXis]I would be interested to find documentation to the contrary, if anyone has some.
    [MidLifeXis]I have done that in the past as well, tye
    [tye]There must have been at least some things that refused to route to 127.0.$x.$y. (other than $x==0, $y==1)
    [Discipulus]imho is pure bullshit, like that IP of microsoft, the automatic default bullshit
    [ambrus]Discipulus: no, I don't think it was; it was some other bad choice, let me check
    [erix]Irons reads Wasteland
    [MidLifeXis]The only time I had issues were when the application bound to 0:port instead of to IP:port.
    [erix]these americans are still working Discipulus, we must distract them a bit ;)
    [tye]but applications are *supposed* to bind to 0:$port. Binding to $ip::$port is a very common mistake (sometimes a design mistake, more often not)
    [MidLifeXis]I meant binding to 0:port even when it was requested to bind to ip:port.
    [ambrus]dunno, I don't remember and I don't have the guide at me
    [MidLifeXis]By default, yes, 0:port is quite sensible.
    [tye]but maybe that was my problem. It has been too long.
    [Discipulus]on friday even
    [MidLifeXis]$bus minus 4 minutes.
    [MidLifeXis]Still have 1.5 minutes until takeoff :-)
    [MidLifeXis]and... liftoff. o/
    [erix]Erdogan says he’s no sultan, but more like British Queen
