Big believer in Open Source and Linux in general. I used to actually do lots of linux stuff, but at some point was convinced to manage people that do linux stuff.

Despite my current manager status, I do hold a current RHCE certification from RedHat. I have used RedHat since Redhat 4.1 (Vanderbilt) in 1997, so I know quite a bit about RedHat and Fedora so my answers are very heavily swayed toward the RedHat way.

comment Linux “rpl” command doesn't replace text
It looks like there is a bug with rpl that it doesn't handle punctuation as word boundaries. I was able to get it to work with the following sed statement though sed -i 's/\bdate/pdate/g'

comment Unable to connect to FTP server using FileZilla, get response message as ÿý%ÿû
Did you specify port 23? Is that the port your FTP server is running on? Typically that is Telnet, not FTP.

comment How to troubleshoot if a zip file is valid or if it is big file size to be unzipped?
Sorry, I'm afraid I don't know how to deal with it if it doesn't realize it is a zip file at all.

If file doesn't recognize it is a zip, it is most likely a corrupt zip file.
