Testing a new wrapper program for managing my .plan files. Real simple hack
that I put together. I wanted to rename my .plan file to something that could
be referenced in the future as a relatively accurate record of when the .plan
file was written. The last modified time, found in the struct stat as
st_mtime, provides us this info quite nicely. Now, thinking like a good UNIX
user, I looked for a program or tool that'd give me this information from a
shell. Did I find one? No. So, I broke out VIM and gcc and wrote up a quick
program, stuffed it in ~/bin, then wrote a quick wrapper script to help me
manage my .plan files. Basically, I call 'newplan.sh' to move the old plan
into ~/web/plans/lastmodtime.plan. (You can browse this directory if you like.)
So, why didn't I just write up a PHP web page to manage this? WHY!? I like
shell! BASH is your friend. Pipes are your friend. VIM is your friend.
Anyway, the work day is almost done. (Where did the time go? ARGGG!) I
actually wanted to get more done today, but I'm not going to slave myself to
this desk all night. I've got a party to go to!
