    I come from the old days, when Unix Gurus were expected to have read the documentation and to remember the syntax for every system call. And I could do it! If you did not recognize the significance of 'tuna fish' in regards to file systems you did not deserve the title of Guru.

    We didn't need no steenkin google!

      Hmmm.
      $ man grep | fmt | wc -l
      729

      It's only 729 lines long. It's very clear and suscinct too!
      Code:
      SYNOPSIS
      grep [OPTION...] PATTERNS [FILE...] grep [OPTION...] -e PATTERNS
      ... [FILE...] grep [OPTION...] -f PATTERN_FILE ... [FILE...]
      
      DESCRIPTION
      grep searches for PATTERNS in each FILE. PATTERNS is one or
      more patterns separated by newline characters, and grep prints
      each line that matches a pattern. Typically PATTERNS should
      be quoted when grep is used in a shell command.
      Looks perfectly clear to me. If you want to be evil, don't tell them that regex(7) describes what "PATTERNS" is.

      At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and left over parts.

          If you think you understand what is going on, you haven't been paying attention.

            Machine work may be one of the very very few topics where RULE 34 does not apply.
            I could be entirely wrong of course but am vehemently opposed to finding out.

                That is advertising.
                A movie called Gang Tool Girls would be a different ballgame (-:
                No pun intended
