This Month's Meeting

Tuesday, 22 April, 2014 at 7 PM
Presentation room at Four Athens

Introductory topic:

Scripts vs Compiled Programs

Tommy McDonald

You might have noticed that some executables on your Linux box contain text that you can read. Others do not. We will discuss the differences between them and consider when one or the other is more desirable. Finally, we will very briefly discuss programs such as SWIG that provide an interface between scripted and compiled code.

Advanced topic:

A BASHful Adventurer

Derek Carter (aka goozbach)

BASH, the Bourne-Again SHell, is commonly used to write scripts, and provides a powerful interface for doing so. But, it is very likely that BASH is also your command-line environment. In this "Choose Your Own Adventure"-style talk, learn to make the most of your command-line experience. To learn more about the talk, click here.
