    Search for \" As Rogue Delimiter in csv file

    The closing delimiter is supposed to be just " In a dataset with about 2 million records, with 22 fields per record, approximately 100 records contain strings delimited like this: 2,5,"bananas",15.5,"I don’t know\",17 Only one of the strings will have the rogue 2nd delimiter. Yes...

    Linux Debian 10 deleting /etc/ folder on running some processes

    My recommendation is the OP run with this guess. If what happened was not an accident, that would be unusual.

    Linux Debian 10 deleting /etc/ folder on running some processes

    I deleted /etc before. That was a bad move. I didn't mean to. I cannot remember whether I was able to restore from a backup or start with a new installation. The main thing I remember is it was really super bad and it pays to not do it again. Root cause is a funny term, because there always...

    Search for \" As Rogue Delimiter in csv file

    I have a few csv files containing about 2 million records. Between the commas delimiting fields, strings can be enclosed in double quotes. Unfortunately, a few hundred records use \" to delimit end of a string. At the command line, I can find the \" sequence with grep -r '\\''\"' . How...

    Is there a problem running Composer 2.x on Debian 10?

    I am confused by these alternatives. Composer is available as a package that can be installed with APT. It surprises me when I look at instructions for installing Composer on Debian 10, usually the Composer installer is recommended instead of the package through the apt repo. Can you possibly...

    Hypothetically, If Only One Could be available, Which One?

    Even even if this crazy situation could happen, It could only happen for a moment. If a moment ever came or only one copy of Linux or UNIX was available, it would only be a few minutes before a new version would be available fashion from the first . Let's just say the situation is only one copy...

    Is there a problem running Composer 2.x on Debian 10?

    Tangential question: running slackware, do you have to install all the dependencies for packages by specifying them individually in conjunction with the command for installing a package? This is good information, succinctly stated. What more can a person hope to find? thank you! I feel safe...

    Is there a problem running Composer 2.x on Debian 10?

    I guess there must be a reason Debian 10 with latest updates installs Composer as version 1.8.6. Is it safe to assume that means Composer 2.x on Debian 10 will have problems?

    sql_mode in phpmyadmin with mariadb

    mysql is one of the best things that ever happened to me. When I started out in this line of work, I wanted to get a copy of Oracle, which at that time was a word that meant "serious relational database, not a toy," on my computer so I could see it and someday get paid for being able to run...

    Setting up Debian 10 on Windows 10

    Someday, a critical requirement likely will arise for running linux on a Windows machine. Till then, making linux run on Windows is a can kicked off a cliff, from which my back is turned and progressing forward means I won't be back to the linux on Windows if I can avoid it. Nothing is worth...

    Setting up Debian 10 on Windows 10

    I have 100% given up on running Windows System for Linux (WSL). I made that decision the moment I discovered that Debian installed through the Windows store does not include systemctl There were many other hassles, but that one took the cake. "Oh it is just like normal debian except no system...
