Delphi `TParser` links

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/03/25

I needed to modify some code that had been amended from the Delphi TParser class (which parses DFM files, but can be amended to other sources as well), so here are some links I found during my research:

Oh and it is on the Delphi VCL Hierarchy poster too (:

*nix: recursively listing “hidden” files from the current directory

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/03/25

As a follow up on my recent rsync on ESXi 5.1 post, as – when rsync in ESXi terminates the hard way because of a lost SSH connection – rsync can leave “hidden” files behind.

A small script that recursively shows the hidden files (those starting with a dot) starting from the current directory:

find . -iname ".*"

More of those (including deleting them, filtering for only files or only directories, etc) are at Linux / UNIX: Bash Find And Delete All Hidden Files Directories.

Note: don’t try to outsmart using something like piping through grep "\/\." as that will also match files who’s parent directories are hidden.
