  • The arguments of "seq" indicate the starting value, step size, and the end value of the x-range. "awk" outputs (x, f(x)) pairs and pipes them to "graph", which is part of the "plotutils" package.

  • List all dependencies manifests so you can install them. In a scenario where you want to deploy a number of web applications and run their dependency managers, how could you run all of them in a systematic order. One of the complexity is to ensure you get only your own top level dependencies. That way, you don recursively call development dependencies of your own dependencies. Otherwise you might end up discovering dependency management manifests that are already been pulled by your own projects. # Using this command This command helps me find them and I can then run what?s required to pull them from their respective sources. This command assumes the following: 1. Your code checkouts are in a flat repository layout (i.e. not nested). 2. Finds manifests for: - NPM (nodejs), - Composer (php), - bower, - requirements.txt (Python), and - git submodules Show Sample Output

  • Install a deb package you have downloaded (synaptic has to be closed). (dpkg-dev needs to be installed) After that you may have to run following: sudo apt-get install -f (that should fix any dependency problems) I am using ubuntu linux


    -7
    sudo dpkg -i packagename.deb
