in thread Perl and the New Frontier

point the differences between various LINUX distributions. For example, what is the root structure, or the etc/ structure, how does the system start, and so on..

One good resource is Linux From Scratch which teaches you how to go from bare-nothing to a working linux system.

Basically you have the kernel, which is started up (booted). Then it calls "init"( there are a few variations) which goes into /etc/rc.d or /etc/init.d and runs a series of startup scripts in a prescribed order. Those take the machine through the various run-levels, single-user,multi-user,multi-user-w-network, X windows.

There also is a set of perl utilities call Perl Power Tools, that emulate all the basic c system commands. Check them out at PPT

    Yes, I have always wanted to make some time to follow those lessons. They are the best way of starting, definetly!

    Yes, that is what I was targeting, I guess. Any operating system where perl might work should be able to use these tools.

    Today, I have found something interesting here. I should have searched a little, before posting...

    Thank you zentara !
