UNIX Man-pages



  1. After whom, in honour of his grammar skills, the popular computer-language was nearly named.

  2. Apparently, Unix won't be popular on the desktop until next year; though popularity is over-rated, & actively avoided by the Haskell-community.

  3. The things one misspells with inevitably disastrous consequences, after the command-line prompt of your favourite shell, & before vowing not to type faster than you can read. It is for this reason that *nix programmers rarely type with more than one finger per eye.

  4. These man-pages were converted (with moderate success), to HTML using rman, one of our seafaring ancestors.
