    ps -ef | grep whatever

    No crontab, no daemon, just a command prompt and the "ps -ef" command

    ps -ef | grep whatever

    That's even weirder ... so the "terminal" decides that if I use PS, I may not see the full output. But when you combine it with a GREP, you can. That doesn't sound like a terminal behaviour, as it is parsing the content of a statement here, I don't think that is the terminal's job.

    ps -ef | grep whatever

    I'll have a try with the "cols" parameter. But, what I would like to is have GREP look for the info of the FULL line, and then only show a capped line. The fact I use GREP is mostly not look for specific text, but just to remove lines not having that text. In that context, it's werid that ANY...

    ps -ef | grep whatever

    Yeah, it seems PS has no line capping functions ... yet it does perform capping. Weird, isn't it ? Examples : Well, yes, something like this: java -pVar01 blabla-pVar02 blabla-pVar03 blabla-pVar04 blabla-pVar05 blabla-pVar0x blabla-pVar0y blabla-pVar0z blabla-pVar0a blabla-pVar0b...

    ps -ef | grep whatever

    That just removes the one line with the "grep" process itself ... Which is a nice trick but it isn't going to solve this issue.

    Australia - The Land Down Under

    I guess I have to come over to taste it Also interesting is that Australia is the antipode of where I live ( the place on a planet the furthest away from a given location on that same planet, ie. the earth itself). So, a long flight ...

    Database recommendations?

    Wasn't going to say it first, but database on Linux ... I have only 1 answer: Oracle But then you'd need the correct distro

    Today's article is about making a better terminal experience...

    Yeah, if you just echo your password in an ECHO command. But, as stated before ... that's not really safe. :)

    ps -ef | grep whatever

    One of the annoyances that I haven't fixed yet is this: When you use ps -ef the commands are actually capped on line length, by default. I don't know why they are, but actually that suits ... ... because: say you run this: ps -ef | grep whatever (and there are processes with "whatever" in the...

    More Linux Users Very Soon.

    It's interesting to see how this will evolve, but I don't see massive switch to Linux. Reason is very simple ; take the average computer user ... Now that is a Windows user. Image these people getting to know how to install a distro ... Never going to happen. Bill knew it back in the 70's...

    chmod not working on ntfs file system

    Common sense Do you think the designers of CHMOD were thinking, OK, yes, this tool is working but I think I found a bug yesterday when I mapped my NTFS folder to my <insert preferred Linux distro> We'll have to wait release of our next distro before we fix this issue with NTFS. Or...

    Making easy commands hard because..

    The power of Linux command line is underrated Some admins think they are pushing the system by using the CD command, and some use Bash just like an average programming langauge

    chmod not working on ntfs file system

    How to fix ? Copying the files from NTFS to a Linux organised filesystem of choice, which doesn't include NTFS. It's not because you can see files, that all is OK. Take the files from NTFS as fast as you can. The Linux OS can also damage your NTFS files and folders, if you try to do things that...

    Solved Is there a way to display the result of a command on the same line?

    this seems to work just fine, no line feed caused by && printf "justa" && printf "test"
