Hi. Just FYI.
It's an interesting article about the origin of dotfiles.
With all due respect to Rob Pike, I really do not find it all that
interesting. .files being no different than any other file other than
not being displayed in a listing ? it seriously makes utterly no
difference other than the human PoV. Just because "We did it in Plan 9"
does mean squat other than "We did it differently".
$ ls -A |grep ^\\. |wc -l
All of which I know how they got there and why they are there.
You have to keep in mind that the old UNIX systems did not have all the
crap that has evolved today for "Desktop" use and programmers in any
given situation will leverage all aspects available in any environment
to achieve a goal, just as Plan 9 does.
Just out of curiosity, how does plan 9 handles it?
Are there hidden files there? I
am sure there are but how are they handled?
