..."/a" is not "/a" ?
while testing a module today I stumbled on something that I can work
around but I don't quite understand.
>>> a = "a"
>>> b = "a"
>>> a == b
>>> a is b
>>> c = "/a"
>>> d = "/a"
>>> c == d
True # all good so far
>>> c is d
False # eeeeek!
Why c and d point to two different objects with an identical string
content rather than the same object?

For the same reason why inner-classes/modules use double colon, because =
they're constants and that's how you look up via constant namespace.
Math::PI and ActiveRecord::Base are the same type of lookup... it is =

Hi i found the following explaination:
In Ada, "in" parameters are similar to C++ const parameters. They are
effectively read-only within the scope of the called subprogram.
Ada "in out" parameters have a reliable initial value (that passed
in from the calling subprogram) and may be modified within the scope
of the called procedure. Ada "out" parameters have no reliable
initial value, but are expected to be assigned a value within the

http://www.techradar.com/news/world-o...Problem with "system" and the linux "su" command
I'm trying to write a little C program to run under linux, which must
gain root so it can then shutdown the computer. I can get the code to
execute the su command via system("su"), but once su comes into action,
my program it's halted and su takes over. Because of this, I can't get
my program to write the password su asks. I habe no idea on how to get
C to communicate with other running processes such as su, but I
understand it can be done. Any ideas on how I can achieve this?

I have PPPoE (verizon dsl). I have a D-Link Router, to which my WIndows '98
machine and my Linux REd Hat 8.0 are both attached. It is, of course easy to
let them share the internet connection... How do I (step by step) configure
everything so that they can "see" each other... So they can share stuff like
the printer, etc. and possibly share files... In the future i want to house
a webserver on my linux and an application server on my win'98 machine... or
vice versa, etc... anyone (as a p.s.) know any other practical uses for
letting them "see" each other?

I'm trying to understand some general things about the linux kernel
compared to the posix kernel API and system calls.
So here are my questions:
Is the "posix kernel API" the same as the linux "system calls"? If not,
what is the difference?
>From what I understand, system calls are the only interface that user
programs can use to interact with the kernel.
Are system calls a form of kernel function? Can/do kernel functions
call system calls?
