If you are a newcomer, please read Devpit:About.

We have started an Index of content (included right). Another useful way to browse is through Special:Allpages.

The logo for this site is user-contributed, since Bilbo is completely incapable of making anything resembling some sort of art. Users can discuss and modify the logo.

Bilbo is the owner, so be nice to him.  ;) Feel free to edit his articles, though; that's the whole point of a wiki. (He's pretty easy-going, in spite of his curmudgeonly decision -- see below).

To edit, you must register. This is mainly to cut down on spam, and is not intended to discourage anyone from editing.


As with most wikis, spam is an ongoing battle. If you have a minute, please do a quick check of Special:Recentchanges and revert any obvious vandalism/spam that you see. Just one or two reverts spread over a lot of people keeps frequent contributors from having to spend a lot of time cleaning up. Thanks!

Index Talk

Talk:Index is included here temporarily because the Index is central to this site, and yet it is still in its early stages.

I moved some of the pages into a hierarchy by using a slash to separate levels. Let's see how well it works out. My thought is we can use a hierarchy to classify pages by their primary purpose, then use categories to provide additional cross-linking. The hierarchy seems important, though, since we need a way to separate, for example, identical concepts on FreeBSD and Linux without massive naming conflicts.

I put Command Line under Languages. I'd be fine with moving it though. Maybe it could even be its own root-level category?
