These did look like homework questions. I did help because you made an
effort to solve some of them.
Thanks for your help. And, I found these questions in from one debian job
(though that was in french and I translated it to English for my curosity)
because I wanted to know more about *nix. That's it!
And, so what if its homework for a job-seeker. If you would have gotten
such questions from your interviewer to anaylze your skill-set then would
you reject or deny to solve these because it looks like homework.
Shakthi, at least I never expected such reply from you.
Such job, interview and quiz questions are not encouraged, because
you, as an individual, need to make an effort to find, answer and
analyze the solutions yourself. Yes, it is part of the learning
process. Only when you make an effort and learn it the hard way, will
you remember them.
If you think you are extremely talented then I do have some deep
algorithmic problems. Shall I share those with you? And, I think you missed
a point that why do people prefer to study case-studies because they give
us a crystal clear image how it looks like when you work in production
environment. Isn't it?
That's what I didn. I tried my level best to solve and on few ones if I
stuck on few ones and got guts to ask you guys then is that my mistake? You
guys sound like why and who did you ask such questions on this group?
I am very sad to state that what I heard about this group tfew years back
from someone that this group is not BEST.
I think it's time to say Good Bye to ILUG-C. Leaving this group to
so-called highly intellectual folks who raise eye-brows on mere
"salutation" or you asked homework questions.

you feed him for a lifetime."
In F/OSS, we prefer to teach. Spoon-feeding is discouraged.
In the age and day of Internet anyone can learn pretty much anything. What
matters the most is whether you mentored the guy well or not. :)
