In this article you'll learn about the types of pointer operations that can cause memory corruption and you'll also examine some scenarios that show what to consider while working with dynamic memory allocation. Pointers and memory leaks might seem to be deterrents to some programmers but, once you understand the fundamentals of pointers and associated memory operations, they will be the most powerful tool you posses in C.
We’ve all agreed that Man pages are a wonderful utility and probably the best thing invented since air-sickness pills. Now wouldn’t it be nice if you could save the output from a man command into a handy text document?
SSH is not only the secure replacement for rlogin, rsh and telnet, which has been used in the past to do remote administration work, but there are also neat tricks like port forwarding, vpn tunneling and file transfers that you can do with minimal configuration work, leaving only one port open to the internets.
Which do you like best: the satisfying, rich taste of principle in free software? Or do you prefer the less morally filling and pragmatic goodness of open source? Do you wish people would stop endlessly rehashing the whole question of "free" versus "open source?" Or do you enjoy the chance to talk about goals and philosophy?
Ubuntu has been a phenomenon in the desktop Linux niche. But Canonical Chief Executive Mark Shuttleworth, who founded the project, has his eyes on the more lucrative server market. Shuttleworth discussed his agenda with CNET News.com's Stephen Shankland.

Okay, time to finish off the “How to Update Banshee” posts. The Mighty Aaron Bockover has put up a repository for SLED10 and another for openSUSE 10.2. If you followed my previous steps on buidling banshee from source, you have to uninstall all the packages before adding these. This is as easy as using “sudo make uninstall.”
As VCs continue to demonstrate their willingness to fund young open source companies, many closed source companies are trying to adopt an open source-type business model just to be more appealing to those with the cash. A lot of the startups recognize the fact that it's difficult to get into the software business if you don't have an open source angle.
In recent months, there is one thing that’s on my mind - open source revenue vs. revolution. Seriously, while the revolution is well underway within the open source community, one has to question which of these two previously mentioned ideologies will, in the end, be the deciding factor on the future of software and OS' as a whole.
In this article, we’ll explore the three most effective ways to obtain music without paying through your nose or losing access to your music. If you’re fed up with the recording studios, just by reading this you’ll be making them soil their pants.
Tapping once again into the collective talents of the open-source community, the new Firefox 2.0 Web browser is unambiguously a success. This said, it breaks little genuinely new ground.

There's an ancient Unix practice of keeping a system-wide phone directory in /usr/share/ with one-line entries containing name, location, and number, and a shell script named something like phone or tel that calls grep to output lines that match whatever arguments you give.
