    you know you have too much time on your hands when

    Re: you know you have too much time on your hands

    What are you doing to make this text file? Typing random words? Or are you just putting random garbage in it for size, with no actual valuabel content?

    TeRG, get Python and try this:

    Code:
    #!/usr/bin/env python
    
    a = range(10000000000000000000000000)
    See how long it takes before you have no RAM/Swap left. If you really want the hard disk:

    Code:
    #!/usr/bin/env python
    
    while 1:
     print "HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH"
    and use this like this: code2.py > file

    the fist one gave me a integer overflow to large error....and the second one ran until i hit ctrl-z.

    You do know that ctrl z only suspends a program, leaving it in the background right?

    Ctl-X or Ctl-C kills apps from the command line. Or as root or the process owner, a kill <pid> will do it. Or to complete the useless info rant, a killall -9 <appname>. Hope that helps ya :)
