  Those famous Emacs users

I don't think using Emacs can improve one's programming skills, I don't think some famous people used Emacs before can provide something, either. But these famous people encouraged me to learn Emacs when I wanted to give it up. Here I created a list of famous Emacs users. Most of people in this list are not famous because they developed or used Emacs, but they are famous and also use Emacs. Joe Armstrong -- Erlang's author In The Setup, Joe mentioned that "I write books using XML markup in emacs...

  bash network interface

Some of us may have seen /dev/tcp/<host>/<port> before, is this a special file system implemented in some BSD kernel? Because there is no /dev/tcp in Linux. Actually, this one is implemented in bash. We no need to rely on wget,nc to do network connection. It's very easy to use this interface: bash-4.2$ cat </dev/tcp/ 56188 12-09-18 15:34:26 50 0 0 733.5 UTC(NIST) * bash-4.2$ exec 3<>/dev/tcp/ bash-4.2$ echo -e "GET / HTTP/1.0\n\n" >&3 b...
