Introduction

Hello there! πŸ‘‹ My name is Sean Miranda, and I’m a computer science student. When I was young, I became interested in technology. It was the early days of my junior high school.

The blazingly fast code editor: Lapce

What is Lapce? A brief summary to Lapce. Lapce is written purely in Rust and a potential competitor to Visual Studio Code, along with Zed and JetBrains Fleet, a blazingly fast code editor of the 21st Century.

Linux Basic Shell Commands

$ The Shell Prompt πŸ’² The most widely used shell on Linux is Bourne Again Shell or Bash. Most linux distribution ships with BASH pre-installed. An alternative to Bash, a very popular shell is Z-Shell or ZSH. The Bourne shell command syntax is a superset of Bash command syntax. Since bash 2.05a, among other things, it enables brace expansion, command line completion, basic debugging, and signal handling (using trap). With the exception of Bourne shell scripts falling into fringe syntax behavior handled differently in Bash or attempting to run a system command matching a newer Bash builtin, Bash can execute the vast majority of Bourne shell scripts without modification....
