datecommand for current time).
@emard Unix reads the the disk timestamp on startup. Whenever the disk is synced the disk timestamp is updated with the current system time. This way, time will not normally go backwards for file time stamps. In the late 70's your PDP-11 might crash once a day due to some hardware glitch - doing time this way was a useful feature to have. It also reminds me that I need to configure a daemon to sync the disk every 5 seconds; on my research setup I don't have that.
If the ESP32 is the time reference, why bother with the RTC chip (other than technical challenge)? The ESP32 might as well drive the emulated 99xx RTC chip directly.
ed, the original editor written by Ken Thompson himself. It is still mandated by the Unix standard, so OS X and Linux still have it.
viwas initially written by Bill Joy and is too large to run on the Mini Cortex. It needs separate I/D spaces which the 9995 does not support. It is supported on the 99000 though, so it is high on my list of to-do's. I do have the
seditor (I think I have it at
/s) which is a vi-like editor: https://github.com/udo-munk/s
server.cwas one of them.
