today is tomorrow's past

I help people create remarkable things. Customer focus and quality nerd. Opinions are my own. Photography is my other passion.

1-Minute Read

<p>Today I learnt something really awesome. If you use a Unix based operating system, then you will be able to send any process a signal. This might be either <code>Ctrl+C</code> or <strong>SIGINT</strong> to interrupt that process. Or you can send <strong>SIGINFO</strong> to report the progress of it’s operation. Why this is awesome? Did you ever copy a huge amount of data and <code>cp</code> didn’t tell you how much has data has been copied so far? <strong>SIGINT</strong> to the rescue.</p>
