http://catless.ncl.ac.uk/. So I have at my fingertips the best source of information on the Net about all kinds of problems with computer systems. I ran a quick search for ActiveX and read the various articles my best advice to you is to do the same. Java, for all its faults, is supported by most browsers (though not all!) using the sandbox model. That is, any applet that is run is severely restricted in what it can do, especially with respect to accessing your local system. No file creation or anything like that. The JVM also carries out checks on applets before it loads them. You can't change this, it's how it is meant to be. ActiveX on the other hand gets by with a user selected option for High, Medium or Low security, which, to be fair (I know it's not like me), defaults to High, but is very easily changed. Oh yes, and ActiveX applets come with a digital signature to tell you who wrote them.
win.ini, though the previous versions were retained as backup files. Following instructions, I ran
pingon my local IP address and it worked. Rushing ahead, I pinged my UNIX system and, oh bliss, this worked. We were in business! It goes without saying that my UNIX system happily pinged my wife's system.
exmh, which I use on my UNIX system.
rsh. My wife uses these occasionally. They worked fine when I tested them.
tcpdump, and provide network statistics. I've only just started to get to grips with SNMP and, so far, things are working - I think!
smb.conffile was correct for machines that were connected to Ethernet only, my main machine also had a dialup connection to the Internet. Samba refused to work! A little investigation found that I had to specify the interfaces that I wanted Samba to work across explicitly in the
smb.conffile like this (shown folded):
printing = bsd
printcap name = /etc/printcap load printers = yes
; Uncomment for guest account
; guest account = pcguest
log file =
/var/log/samba-log.%m lock directory =
share modes = yes
interfaces = 192.168.1.2/24
/home/sambaand can act as a general read/write scratchpad area between users. Also visible is your home directory, if your Windows network ID is the same as one of the valid user IDs on the Linux system. To attach to your home directory from Windows you will need to supply your Linux password. However you need only do this once if you tick (or fail to un-tick) the inviting little box which says Save this password in your password list.
/var/spool/lpd/lp/filter, assumes that the input is some sort of plain text. It uses
ghostscriptto first lay the text out on the page and then, if the printer is not directly Postscript capable, translates it into codes that the printer will understand. Windows likes to do all this driving of a printer itself, so attempting to use the standard filter will just result in an ugly mess of nicely formatted escape sequences!
lp-raw. Here is my /etc/printcap file:
#Look at the printcap(5) man
#page for more info.
##PRINTTOOL## LOCAL cdj550 #300x300 a4 1
.INIfiles, as this is how the Windows environment is customised and altered as applications are installed.
fvwm. The Wabi windows are visible in the same positions on all virtual desktops, leading to annoying clutter. This too is odd as
fvwm-like virtual desktop systems have been available for MS Windows for years, although not from Microsoft. Although these two shortcomings are documented in the manual, they are rather disappointing. I would like to know if there is a technical reason for them, or if it is just more functionality limitations to appease Microsoft.

exec()calls, etc). The limit in functionality with Win32, translates into limited functionality for any UNIX-like product built on top of Win32. This is not to say that Win32 is a bad environment. It provides a huge toolset of APIs that are more focused in supporting the traditional Windows environment and beyond. It's just that Win32 is not UNIX and does not support the same set of APIs as UNIX. OpenNT is totally integrated with the existing functionality of Windows NT; the same filesystem is used, system administration is done the standard NT way and NT security is unaffected. For example, user accounts and privileges are administered through the NT User Manager and respected in the OpenNT world. Files created with OpenNT can be viewed and accessed from the Windows world (and vice versa). We also feature cross subsystem application execution support. This allows
cmd.exeusers to run OpenNT programs and Win32 applications to be run from OpenNT shells and scripts. This translates into a powerful feature of being able to build shell scripts that not only use traditional UNIX commands, but also NT specific commands.

ftpand, of course, has a GUI front end.)
/tmpso I can play around. And, of course, in typical Mac fashion, you can change the volume name.
grepfamily and meta-characters via a number of examples. Chapter 2 introduces the Perl language with some text processing examples, and finishes with a fairly complex Python script. Chapter 3 is an overview of regular expression features and, I must admit, I didn't realise there were so many differences between the tools that claim to use regular expressions. For example, did you know that POSIX supports two classes of regular expressions, basic and advanced?
more, Perl, Python,
egrep, and MKS

awk(before Perl came along :-), so I was fascinated to read that there are at least six versions of
awkavailable today, each subtly different:
oawk the original AT&T version.
nawk new awk.
awk the One True awk, still maintained by Brian Kernighan!
gawk GNU awk.
mawk Mike Brennan's awk.
