    The first program I've ever written.

    This is something I wrote without copying out of a book. I'm not a coder, I believe I've made that clear, but anyway, I think my program shows Slackware and Simplicity are good in coding.

    I made this to test the chance that I might be able to make a checking tool that will go over and do a couple checks on my system, and so far:

    SUCESS!



    --------------------------------------
    #!/usr/bin/perl

    print

    "Hi, a mail has been sent to user gore with an Nmap scan.\n";

    system "nmap -sT 127.0.0.1 | mail gore";

    ----------------------------------------------

    ^ KISS

    I'm using system rather than exec, because well I just learned about exec 10 minutes ago. Some of you may remember I bought a Perl book in the summer. Well I got to look at it for a whole day before school was back in and work, making it REALLY hard for me to learn it. So last night I picked the book back up and now I've been learning Perl for a total of 2 hours. That's including the hour and a half I did in the summer before school, and now a half hour last night.


    I made it for proof of concept mainly, as in "Will it work if I do it?" And it does. This is the start of my next project. I can make it do an nmap scan and mail the results to me, so maybe next I'll make it use a password crack on my /etc/passwd file and see if I can make it scan my host and detect weak passwords. If I can keep adding to it maybe I'll have a simple check tool for use.

    Since I'm just learning shell scripting with Bash I can say the same program would've worked really well as a .sh Don't ask me to write it right now though... too high.

    I don't really think that qualifies as a program, but hey. You have to start somewhere. Congrats.

    I would personally say, you might want to read a little more up on system though.

    That and look into `
    It will make what you are doing easier.

    it is nice to see you know very little about programming gore, otherwise i might have thought a comment from you on another thread about my C tutorials:
    Written BY and FOR people who don't know ****
    might have really meant something, but appearantly you don't know **** yourself

    Let's see... no fancy 'hacks' or sanity checks

    Code:
    printf "Mail dispatched to gore with results of scan" && `nmap -sT 127.0.0.1 | mail gore`
    I realize that maybe the ` aren't necessary but what the heck, just to make sure...

    My nicest 'shell script' was a one line command...

    Code:
    root@inaequitas # rm -f `find / -empty .keep`
    or something like that... [think it was something more though]

    Sorry gore, not trying to take you away of the spotlight... I'm just excited about my study into shell scripting, that's all

    What does it have to do with Slackware??

    Oh come on you HAD to know I was joking by now.

    Hyrponix, no big deal.



    Chsh, nothing much, but it was written on the Slackbox And, seriously, do they get more simple than mine That's like a whole line or so lol. Next step is for making it use crack.

    I skipped a lot of chapters until I came to the part on system and exec because well, that was what I wanted to do I guess. I'll go back to them after I play with these.

    That's why I'm saying that you could use shell scripting for this, since it's mostly Bash commands [and well system commands but they get called through bash].

    Although I used to do the same thing as you in C code since I was lazy to write batch file...

    P.S. Please spell my name in lowercase

    P.P.S. Well enjoy code! There are some nifty things you can do with two lines of perl [well one if you like obfuscation], 10 lines of C or a screenfull of Java
