gnarwl vacation schema with 389

Update: I noticed that the syntax for vacationStart and vacationEnd do not permit integer comparisons. So I changed them from 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.40 to 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15. This change allows you to make a gnarwl search string that uses the current time to check if a vacation is active.

gethostbyname example that compiles and runs clean on puias6

While playing around with getting host entries to work with ldap, I found that my previous code for using gethostbyname was not running clean on puias6. Here is an updated version


#include

#include

int main(int argc, char **argv) {
int i;

nsswitch.conf hosts lookup from ldap on puias6 (RHEL6/CENTOS6) nslcd

We store our host information in ldap. Previously using ldap for host lookups was done by adding the appropriate entries to /etc/ldap.conf and changing nsswitch.conf.

With 6, nss_ldap has been replaced by nslcd, so I needed to change our setup a little.
I put the following into nslcd.conf


uid nslcd
gid ldap
uri ldap://ldap2.example.com

Using previous command arguments in a new line

A friend of mine was talking about his design for a shell that would allow you to programatically reuse arguments. I started looking and found that bash can do this but not programatically (at least as far as I know). The syntax was slighty confusing but here is the summary, it blew my mind when I started using it (but I'll probably forget it again soon enough, like all the awesome things you can do in vi if you can remember...)

Here goes, lets copy a file from a deeply nested path to our location by first tab-completing the filename with ls
