Recently I had to setup Active Perl with Sublime Text 2 in Windows 8. After adding a new build system and setting up the path to perl.exe with the -w flag I wanted to figure out what other flags were available. You can pass perl several flags: bin/perl -w bin/perl -p bin/perl -d bin/perl -i bin/perl -t bin/perl -pe bin/perl -pi Here are what the perl flags do: -i: Modifies your input file in-place -w: Activates some warnings -d: Runs under the Perl debugger -t: Treats certain “tainted” code as warnings -p: Places a printing loop around your command so that it acts on each line of standard input. -e: Allows you to provide the program as an argument rather than in a file.
Clear and simple. The path for the windows system32 host location is c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts on most systems. On linux systems it is in /etc/hosts so that part makes sense to me, but I have no idea why it is in the drivers folder. Remember if you want to edit the hosts file you may need to have “administrator access” which can be done by right clicking “Notepad” and choosing “Run As Administrator” and then opening the file with Notepad. Otherwise you might be able to view the file but you will get an erro when saving it. Make a backup before you start Other windows system32 host location Windows 95/98/Me c:\windows\hosts Win2k, Windows NT/2000/XP Pro c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts Windows XP Home c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
Connecting to a Shared Folder with VirtualBox and Windows XP is easy. In the following example Windows XP (TinyXP) is being used to connect to VirtualBox on Mac OS X Mountain Lion. On your list of VirtualBox machines choose the windows XP machine you want to share a folder with and then click “Settings” Choose the “Shared Folders” tab and then select the path on your host computer that you want to share with the Virtual Machine Select the options “Auto mount” and “Make permanent” if you would like this connection to persist If your Windows XP virtual machine is running you may need to restart it Open “My Computer” and from the “Tools” menu choose “Map Network Drive” When the “Map Network Drive” dialog box opens click on “Browse” Choose “Virtualbox Shared Folders” and then “\VBOXSVR” and then the name of your shared folder – (VBOXSVR is how virtualbox refers your host machine – opposed to Remote Desktop / Terminal services which refers to it as \tsclient / tsclient ) Click OK and now you should have your new drive appearing in “My Computer”

You may have noticed that when you log out or reboot Mac OS X Lion, you get a dialog window with a checkbox next to “Reopen windows when logging back in” that restores all of your currently open applications and windows. If you don’t like it and you’re tired of unchecking the box to no longer reopen the windows, you can use a third party script to render the feature useless. To clarify, what this does is disable the feature completely on a constant basis, regardless of whether that checkbox to preserve windows is checked or not, the windows will not restore.

If you have a WINDOWS machine: 1) Hit the Print Screen key on your keyboard. It’s usually in the upper right and marked “PrntScrn” or “PrtSc”. 2) Try to Paste directly into a email you’ll send to us (either by holding down the “Ctrl” key and pressing the “V” key, *or* by right-clicking the blank screen and selecting “Paste”). If your email program doesn’t let you do that, then: 3) Click the green Start button on the lower left of your screen. 4) Navigate to All Programs -> Accessories, and open the Paint program. 5) Paste into the Paint program, either by holding down the “Ctrl” key and pressing the “V” key, *or* by right-clicking the blank screen and selecting “Paste.” 6) Save the file (from File -> Save) as a .JPG (choose “Save as type” JPEG). 7) Attach that file in an email. If you have a MAC: 1) Hold down the Shift key *and* the Command key (which may have an Apple logo and/or a “four-leaf clover” type symbol). Then, while still holding down these keys, press the 3 key. This will save the screenshot as a file on your Desktop. If you hit the 4 key instead, it will give you a target allowing you to drag a box around only the item that you want to take a screenshot of. 2) Attach that file in an email.
