@winnythepooth, if you're asking programming questions, it's better to ask in Stack Overflow – LiuYan 刘研 Mar 23 '13 at 14:50
@techie007 that question you refer to is up for closing and so is not really a good question to quote as a duplicate. Out of the two, this one seems more clearly worded. – Tog Mar 23 '13 at 19:37
@techie007 it is also not a duplicate. The other question, and its answer, are about python while this one is about the terminal. – terdon Mar 24 '13 at 4:35
