Past shows

There are 4 comments on 2 previous shows:

  • hpr2793 (2019-04-17) "bash coproc: the future (2009) is here" by clacke.
    • Comment 2: clacke on 2019-05-04: "Re: backquotes vs dollar-paren"

      Yes, that's why the dollar-paren was introduced. Backquotes can be nested too, but that requires escaping them with backslashes and we don't want to go there if we can avoid it.

      Apart from the nesting thing, I find dollar-paren easier to read, especially when enclosed in double-quotes, as it usually is.

      I thought that one difference between the two is that dollar-paren trims any trailing newlines, but it turns out I was wrong -- they both do that, so the difference is purely about quoting and readability.

    • Comment 3: clacke on 2019-05-09: "Re: awk coprocesses"

      I heard your comment again on the Community News and discovered that you were talking about awk coprocesses also, not just backticks. :-)

      I didn't know about them! Looking forward to the episode.

    • Comment 4: Dave Morriss on 2019-05-09: "Regarding awk coprocesses"

      Hi clacke,

      Yes, thanks for the link. I thought "I put that link in my notes", went and looked and found I'd messed it up, so I just fixed it :-)

      The show is number 15 in the series and is now on the site as https://hackerpublicradio.org/eps.php?id=2824


  • hpr2798 (2019-04-24) "Should Podcasters be Pirates ?" by knightwise.
    • Comment 4: Klaatu on 2019-05-07: "This is one of those episodes..."

      This is the kind of episode I'd love to have played on NPR or some de facto talk radio station. On the one hand, it's "preaching to the choir" here on HPR, but then again, the topic is actually bigger than just podcasting. Where have all the blogs gone? the little indie websites and fansites? The Internet in general is a lot more cookie-cutter now than I think it was ever meant to be. As Dave Morriss says in an earlier comment, it's up to us to keep grassroots alive.
