  • Shell Script to Delete .svn Folders
    rm -rf `find . -type d -name .svn`

    This script uses the rm and find commands to recursively delete .svn folders. rm and find can be found on all UNIX based operating systems including Linux and OS X.

  • This is a proposal for a mostly backwards compatible specification for a flat-file representation of tabular data like CSV (comma separated values). CSV has never been one particular standard and even standards such as RFC 4180 leave much to be desired, namely removing the optionality of a header row, making the character encoding explicit, and being appropriate in an international context where the comma may be used as a decimal separator.
