Re: OT: Hey guys, I need, like, programmy advice...
That's quite odd, since grep can't modify files afaik (unless you
overwrite the input with the output of grep). OTOH, I don't know all the
magic of the entire grep family :-)
Since you can download & install all those nice GNU tools for ages on
Windows , and it's not happening (do to commercial s/w), it's not
happening. Moreover, those tools work in a CLI. My mom is not going to
understand that :-) And I think my partner is not going to use it, if
there is a freeware Windows alternative that works with a GUI, even if
it means she has to click 50 times, instead of typing 2 words.
and often how much time it wastes, especially if you want it only a few
times. I really shiver at the thought to explain to someone the use of
find, sed, etc. to do something that's just a few clicks and key strokes
True for people who have a lot of spare time, but if you run a business:
time is money. Also, if all your customers use A, and you insist on
running B, and have to convert a lot to/from A, you are fighting an
uphill battle. I know some people love that, but every minute wasted on
converting stuff, is losing time that could be spent on a project, and
gives a lot of frustration. Worse, if one converts to A, send it to the
customer, and the customer, using B, can not use it because the program
on A is "an alternative", and not a real alternative, you waste and your
own time, and that of the customer.
Doing everything yourself is cool if it's a hobby, and you want to
learn. If you run your business, and in the end you are the system
administrator, the in-house tool developer, the bookkeeper, the
coffeemaker, the carpenter (desk), and the device driver hacker, well,
uhm, when do you work?
What custom built systems? You lost me a bit. If you mean that one can
add some OS tools to Windows, that has been possible for ages, and ages.
But people who try to convert Windows to a kind of Linux (cygwin, etc.)
end often up with a cripled inbetween. Moreover, when you have to work
on site (with Windows) for some reason, you're lost.
it can also lead to improductivity, lost customers, and a lot of stress.
