I'm running Fedora 13 Linux, and sending mail to myself using mutt, and I can't seem to get procmail to run. Below is what my .procmailrc, ~/Procmail/rc.testing, and .forward files all look like. As you can see, they are very simple.
I use a script which either activates an already running window of a program, or starts that program if it is not running. It uses different shortcut-keys; one for each of my most used apps — it checks for a unique window title format. This has worked fine, until today, when I decided to use t...
Suppose I do the following in zsh

Best regards and thanks in adv...
Say I want to grab the last 5
mentions of cron in /var/log/syslog.log looking over the grep manual it seems like I can't get grep to search in reverse. I can however grab the most recent occurrences.
grep cron -m 5 /var/log/syslog

I have set up an alias in my .bashrc as follows:
alias u='cd ..'
All is well in my world... until I type cd .. and cringe that I did not use my incredible new alias. In fact, with this particular thing, it's very ingrained. Hard to change my behavior - I need serious intervention.

I often see that programs specify pid and lock files. And I'm not quite sure what they do.
For example, when compiling nginx:
