A bunch of upcoming meetings and BSD Cons upcoming:

Getting to yes.c, Mike Burns
Wednesday, April 5, 18:45, LMHQ, 150 Broadway, 20th Floor, Manhattan
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.
