\amethystRedACE: In particular the "Command Substitution" section
wols_dclarke: if you don't know what this is, read the debian manual
!tell dclarke about grounding
fuzzy_logicwols_: there are 2 boxes behind that ip.. 1 is freebsd and 1 is debian.. when you do a search to 89.98.88.94 you will probably get the info that it's a freebsd box cause that's the main server.. but i think mail is forwarded to debian
valdynconcept10: mapages are made for easy printing
\amethystRedACE: Then how about `echo ls /`
valdynconcept10: and yes, there's books that are basically just a printout of manpages
mutantpineapplevaldyn: but few printers are able to handle flushable paper :(
RedACE\amethyst, what about it?
did it capture anything?
wols_fuzzy_logic: considering I can't get a connection on port 25: I don't believe you
\amethystRedACE: Care to explain why that doesn't print "ls /"
concept10mutantpineapple, who would want to flush a precious manpage?
wols_fuzzy_logic: fix that before you ask for help about exim in here again
mutantpineappleconcept10: "desperate times..."
RedACEwhy would it?
wols_fuzzy_logic: cause otherwise it's moot to fix exim: it won't help
fuzzy_logicwols_: i forwarded port 25 in my router to the debian pc.. so nothing can be wrong with that.. right?
\amethystRedACE: It wouldn't...
valdynfuzzy_logic: run wget valdyn.us.to on that debian box, i'll tell you the ip
mutantpineappleconcept10: i refer to those beautiful moments of human helplessness when the bog roll is slightly out of reach
\amethystRedACE: Perhaps we mean different things by "capture"
Petrovhello, what is netstd?
wols_fuzzy_logic: leeh asked you something, I asked you something else. you haven't answered either
RedACE\amethyst, perhaps. I think by "capture" you mean "execute in a subshell"
concept10mutantpineapple, or out completely :)
fuzzy_logicwols_: i missed what you asked.. what did you ask?
wols_if something is actually listening on port 25
but what leeh asked is more important
\amethystRedACE: It's doing more than just executing in a subshell... the output of the command inside the `` is broken into words and substituted for the `` expression
fuzzy_logicvaldyn: this: 88.217.35.254
chop1RedACE: He means "redirect stdout, such that all the output of the subshelled command is substituted into the command line at the `` position", which to me sounds a lot like capturing
RedACEright, that's called stdout
valdynfuzzy_logic: i got a wget request from 89.98.88.94
dclarkeman dpkg-reconfigure does not help
it has nothing to do with Xorg as near as I can see
fuzzy_logicvaldyn: see.. that is the debian box..
chop1RedACE: If you say, for example, man `echo foo | s/foo/printf`, you'll get the printf man page
fuzzy_logicwols_: what did leeh ask?
\amethystRedACE: Would you care to explain why sh -c 'echo ls'; does something different from `echo ls`
