> Notice: Location Change
> Let's read a classic: yes.c. We can look at OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD,
> GNU, Illumos, and Unix 7th ed. implementations. With the many different
> authors and distinct cultures we will be sure to have much to discuss
> and compare. Some things to think about: what are some uses for the yes
> command? What errors can occur, and how are they handled? How did GNU
> manage to make this program 88 lines long? How did Illumos get this
> program indented by five tabs?
> The inspiration is the shared metaphors and expressions we have in
> natural language due to common books (e.g. Hitchhiker's Guide to the
> Galaxy, Romeo and Juliet) and movies (e.g. Hackers, A Christmas Carol).
> Come prepared for a poetry slam crossed with a book club.
