unix


I have, finally, switched to Apple OS X. This is so close to my favorite FreeBSD (OSX is a Unix BSD / Darwin derivative) and it has all drivers and multimedia features working, that I think I will switch for good. This the simple, stable, and functional platform, where you can really focus on your work. Along with the MacPorts suite installed that provide access to the Open-Source / Free-Software I feel like home 🙂

In case you need to list directories only in reverse recursive order for automatic list generation for directory removal on package deinstallation, here goes an example sh+find script that should work on all Unix platforms:

#!/bin/sh
dirlevel=3;
while [ $dirlevel -gt 0 ]; do
 find /tmp -type d -depth $dirlevel
 dirlevel=`expr $dirlevel - 1`;
done
