Oops, sorry. Must have skipped over that one. Although, I have to say I think it is a ridiculous and absurd rule. This is an information exchange.

Nope, certainly not a ridiculous and absurd rule. Why? Because homework, assignments, or projects meant to be a self practice. Its is based to test your capabilities to identify the problem or structure by yourself without any help. If we help your assignments here and it was succesfull, is it worth of your lessons that you take. I certainly believe its not worthy. The rule that was set on this forum by the Administrator certainly restrict users from passing down assignment questions. Even though this is a Information Exchange it doesnt mean to exchange homework questions based answers. Do post back for any clarifications.

You obviously are not a student. Doing a research paper means researching, talking to those in the field. I do not have a copy of UNIX readily available on my computer. Therefore, I go to information sources. As we have previously established, this is an information exchange. That is why I came here. Any more questions?
