Will this put everything below this in a <code> tag on the mobile site (and maybe also on the desktop site on some computers / browsers)?

I think it did. (I deleted it because it messed up the sandbox, see edit history, Kusalananda)

date; cd; touch; strip; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; unmount; sleep

date; cd; touch; strip; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; unmount; sleep

date; cd; touch; strip; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; unmount; sleep
date; cd; touch; strip; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; unmount; sleep

Dodge this:

date; cd; touch; strip; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; unmount; sleep

and that:

date; cd; touch; strip; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; unmount; sleep

From problematic answer:

for example:

ip,time,name,_random
1.1.1.1,2018-08-31 11:12:32,python,65536
1.1.1.1,2018-08-31 11:12:32,python,42

or

ip,time,name,_seq
1.1.1.1,2018-08-31 11:12:32,python,1
1.1.1.1,2018-08-31 11:12:32,python,2

But, you can not use too many numbers for the same tag. Influx by default sets max-tag-per-value to 100000.

    On Unix & Linux, you are expected to write proper English (as advertised on English Language & Usage), but here on Meta Stack Exchange it's more important to have freehand circles, so please edit your post, otherwise I'll have to flag you (see the FAQ). If you're unsure how to use your keyboard, Super User is the right place to ask. There's no Q&A site about unicorns yet, but you can suggest one on Area 51.

Just wondering why [question:646] or [answer:646#683] are not hyperlinkified.

An other test: link to this anwser (failed)

Links to the question: Experimentation Sandbox or this. Ok, these ones work.

  • There is a magic link system for comments, but it only works in comments and doesn't include question/answers. If you know the ID you can just link to unix.stackexchange.com/q/646 Commented Aug 12, 2011 at 22:37

    I knew about those. The ones I wish for would display the current title of the question (plus the name of the author for answers), and update with future edits. Commented Aug 12, 2011 at 22:42
  • A link to a question will get turned into the title of the question; I'm not sure about answers. They don't update though, it would be too much load on the servers to try and keep track of all that Commented Aug 12, 2011 at 22:53
  • Testing answers links as [text](#726): here is a link to [my own answer](#726) (maybe). Commented Aug 12, 2011 at 23:12
  • Argh, failed :/ Commented Aug 12, 2011 at 23:13
  • Ah, apparently not in comments. Example answer (source) Commented Aug 12, 2011 at 23:16

Hmm, a and b separated by 5 spaces gives a b.

Gee, bug? (Same with any number of spaces)

Bash is the shell, or command language interpreter, for the GNU operating system. The name is an acronym for the ‘Bourne-Again SHell’, a pun on Stephen Bourne, the author of the direct ancestor of the current Unix shell sh, which appeared in the Seventh Edition Bell Labs Research version of Unix.

Bash is largely compatible with sh and incorporates useful features from the Korn shell ksh and the C shell csh. It is intended to be a conformant implementation of the IEEE POSIX Shell and Tools portion of the IEEE POSIX specification (IEEE Standard 1003.1). It offers functional improvements over sh for both interactive and programming use.

While the GNU operating system provides other shells, including a version of csh, Bash is the default shell. Like other GNU software, Bash is quite portable. It currently runs on nearly every version of Unix and a few other operating systems - independently-supported ports exist for MS-DOS, OS/2, and Windows platforms.
