Computer Syntax (was Re: Quoting URLs in postings )
Martin McCormick email (remove spam text)
If I am quoting a UNIX command or giving a Email address which
happens to end up at the end of a sentence, I put a space between the end of
the command and a period. This isn't exactly by the rules, but it should
get the idea across. Example follows:
Tired of those ads on the list? Well, telnet to cyberpromo.com .
Somehow, get the root password. Log in as root and type rm -r * . This
should clear up the interference for a while. Don't forget to go to
Washington, D.C. and collect your Metal of Honor while you pose for the
statue of you that will surely be erected in a prominent place.
