that's exactly what i'm talking about with the command line. who in their right mind, would know some gibberish like that? no, normal joe blow user would EVER figure that out!!
saddletramp - for some of us normal joes, it's our job to both figure out and create command line gibberish when there's no available GUI to do the trick. Jebba's example is a fairly simple but powerful 5-line shell script that will resize every JPG file in a directory. It's the stock and trade of Joe Admin.
i apologise for talking about it like that, but it simply blows me away. i couldn't do that "gibberish" if i wanted to, i don't think. will probably take more years to learn that i have left on earth! i have enough headaches fixing everybody else's stuff around here in the windows world, along with my real job. i'm just here to play in linux.
so, from here on in, when ever you hear me talk about the command line, just blow it off! i respect it and fear it!! but, do expect me to be asking, when necessary, what the heck is the code for whatever i may be trying to wreck!!
