Re: Some comand qns

Hi Sophia,

I can answer 1, 3 and 4

1. either # . ./<script_name>
or
# exec ./<script_name>

3. use the following syntax for a variable:

${VARIABLE}

e.g. to echo the date into a file in your home directory:

# date > ${HOME}/date_file

4. use: kill -9

Cheers,

Trystan.

Hi,

2. A programmer of a code can determine the amount of memory resources code can use. The CPU load exerted by the process is determined by the amount data fed to the process for manipulation or the speed of I/O operations or number of users connecting to that process ( network process ).

4. chattr +i myfile

Now even root cannot delete myfile. unless he gives this command and tries rm again

chattr -i myfile
