Example text

Its errors will go to stderr. The errors will appear on the terminal because > only redirects stdout, not stderr. pl somefile % cat birthcal % The error didn’t go into the birthcal file. ) In this case, nothing went into the birthcal file; cat shows that it’s now empty. This brings up an important point: by default, redirection to a file will overwrite whatever is in that file, no questions asked. This follows the shells’ design philosophy that, in general, you know what you’re doing. ) If you want the shells to prevent overwriting when you use >, you can set the “no clobber” option, which we explain in the section “Preventing Files from Being Clobbered” in Chapter 8.

You can also use completion to build pathnames interactively: type the first few characters and press Tab. The shell “remembers” previous command lines. You can reuse all or parts of them with shell history and command-line editing. In the next chapter, we’ll look at another strength of shells. They let you use programs as “building blocks,” together with the shells’ built-in programming features (and features you’ve seen in this chapter), to create your own customized programs. This lets you work even more quickly, and make fewer mistakes, than you might by working manually.

You can use the PID to get information about the process and to control it. All PIDs are between 1 and 30,000 or so. PIDs are assigned in order, depending on when a process starts. Once the top PID (like 30000) has been assigned, the system starts over at low numbers, reusing PIDs from old processes that have since finished. Some “system” processes start when your system starts and keep running until you shut it down. For example, PID 1 is the program called init. A process (called the parent process) can start one or more other process (called child processes, or subprocesses).
