Each remote machine may have a file named /etc/hosts.equiv containing a list of trusted hostnames with which it shares usernames. Users with the same username on both the local and remote machine may run rsh from the machines listed in the remote machine's /etc/hosts file. Individual users may set up a similar private equivalence list with the file .rhosts in their home directories. Each line in this file contains two names: a hostname and a username separated by a space. The entry permits the user named username who is logged into hostname to use rsh to access the remote machine as the remote user. If the name of the local host is not found in the /etc/hosts.equiv file on the remote machine, and the local username and hostname are not found in the remote user's .rhosts file, then the access is denied. The hostnames listed in the /etc/hosts.equiv and .rhosts files must be the official hostnames listed in the hosts database; nicknames may not be used in either of these files.

Hello, MadCoder Welcome to this la la land! I am actually interested in learning Russian languages. Suppose I'm your dumb machine, how do you programming me so that i can distinct some characteristics about Russian language in shortest bursts of time and have the ability to accumulate knowledge about Russian over my life time? Your dumb machine can read English, Chinese fluently, can read French, Japanese with some help from dictionaries. He wants to be able to read Arabic, Russian and Hindu languages as well. He'd appreciate very much for anyone to keep his problem at the back of their mind and ponder on it at their leisure times.

hey, scienceboy2
pardon me for one stupid question but who is your dad. And what happened to your evil twin brother ? he forgot his magic word or something?

    The following is an example using tar to transfer files across the network.
    tar cvfb - 20 files | rsh host dd of=/dev/rmt/0 obs=20b
    In the example above, we are creating a tarfile with the c key letter, asking for verbose output from tar with the v function modifier, specifying the name of the output tarfile using the f function modifier (the standard output is where the tarfile appears, as indicated by the `-' sign), and specifying the blocksize (20) with the b function modifier. If you want to change the blocksize, you must change the blocksize

    new batch of used powells book came today: James Michener's "The Source", Will Durant's "Our Oriental Heritage: The story of civilization", Joseph Campbell "The hero with a thousand faces", Jared Diamond "Guns, Germs and Steel: The fates of human society", Sigmund Freud "Civilization and its discontents", the following items are not currently available "Seeds from a birch tree: writing haiku & the spiritual ? " by clark strand. ( i add that book so that it's over $50 in total. i like the fact that powell still ships the book to me without any shipping charge even though one book is not available. I never can appreciate accuracies of calculations done by my credit card companies. As a matter of fact, their calculation enrage me and i really like to spend some time to argue with them in court one of those days when there isn't more interesting book to read. )

    draft of an article intended for advogato posting.

    i don't see much point of arguing about different merits of programming languages. Having said that, i would like to argue a better way to define the results of all our previous arguments. With the agreed upon onset of a fix point, we can then conclude which language is more likely to provide a shorter cut under our pre-condition. The experiment i had in mind is like these:

    Two women in middle age, with sufficent training in scientific disciplines when they were young but for one reason or another, they did not pursuit the path of becoming scientists. One day, both of them read an old article about John Conway's game of life. They played the game since men have already implemented the game in Java, Python etc. One woman wish that she can implement the same game in a new language CLEAN by herself. But even if she did that, it is still questionable to say that CLEAN is clever than Java or Python because of the priori existence of the implementation in other languages. In the article, Conway conjectures ...
