    Adding A Section Of The Forum For Unix Commands

    Hi, whats the probability of adding a section to the forum just for unix related commands. It would not fall under apache because in this case it is not a web server, its just a OS install.

    Thanks

    Do other forum members want such a sub-forum as well? If so, I have no problem adding it. Let me know!
    Regards, R.J.

    It's probably a good idea, provided we can find an active moderator for it.

    Where would that forum go? In the Computer Programming section?
    All super moderators have moderation permissions for all forums, so moderation shouldn’t be an issue.

    I am personally not interested. Commands are just commands. They are all available online or from the man pages along with the flags.
    To save time, lets just assume I am almost never wrong.

    The XY Problem
    The XY problem is asking about your attempted solution (X) rather than your actual problem (Y). This leads to enormous amounts of wasted time and energy, both on the part of people asking for help, and on the part of those providing help.

    As a programmer myself, I find myself using the Linux command line all the time. If you use languages and technologies native to Linux, it's pretty hard to avoid. Yes, there are man pages and other forums out there with responses you can google, but if you are not intimately familiar with bash/shell scripting, then you can not always decipher these resources. So I see merit in such a forum.

    (That's sort of like giving someone a link to the PHP manual in the PHP forum. A beginner or novice cannot make heads or tails of this without some guidance.)

    And, yes, maybe a sub-forum under Computer Programming: Linux Bash/Shell ??
    Regards, R.J.

    Cant hurt but forum should probably be an all things Linux with appropriate subs. Kinda outside of coding, but might bring some extra life to the forum.

    Main - Linux (General Linux Stuff)
    Subs - Debian - Fedora - Ubuntu - etc...

    Bash/Shell scripting IS coding

    I don't know that we need to have separate sub-forums for each Linux distribution, within bash/shell scripting forum.

    At most we can group different distros into families, e.g.:

    1) Debian, Ubuntu
    2) CentOS, Redhat, Fedora
    3) etc...

    Each family of distributions has similar (and generally the same) commands and conventions.

    The more I talk about this, the more I like this idea.

    Stephan, do you want to set this up? I don't have a lot of time...I can help with any details, as I am pretty familiar with this stuff...

    And, of course, more feedback is welcome!
    Regards, R.J.

    And I think the forum should go in one of the following places:

    1) subforum of "Other server side languages/ issues"
    2) forum listed under "SERVER SIDE DEVELOPMENT"

    Bash scripting is server side development, plain and simple.

    You misunderstood what I said. I meant the distro forums were not coding. I didn't mean to put them under Bash. I meant for Bash to be under the main Linux forum.

    EDIT: Now that you got me thinking about it, there is also windows scripting. There is Powershell and batch scripts

    How about having one forum for that and provide thread title prefixes, as it is done in the JS frameworks forum?

    Thanks everyone for the positive energy on this . The more we can save users from having to bounce all over the place or piece meal an answer they need, and offer users a one stop solution the more user repeat traffic we will get. Every little bit helps and i was surprised when i didnt find this here already. Im very happy to hear we can do this

    Thank you all...

    I've added a new "Shell & Bash Scripting" sub-forum under the "Other server side languages / issues" main forum.

    Per Stephan's suggestion, I have enabled "platform" thread prefixes here to specify the OS/platform used.

    Let me know what you guys think!

    ( And let's get some threads started in there! It looks pretty bare right now... )
    Regards, R.J.
