Den Film Inception hatte ich vor einer Weile auch mal gesehen. Fand ich ok, aber mehr nicht. Doch auch ich hab den Film nicht wirklich gesehen, denn darin steckt viel mehr drin, als man glaubt:

GNU recutils 1.5 ist da
14th January 2012
The changes in this release are:

- The utilities will now ask interactively for a password if it was
  not provided with the -s command line option.  This avoids security
  problems related to shell history files.

- Support for octal and hexadecimal numbers has been added.  They can
  be used in both the records and selection expressions.

- It is now possible to select a given number of random records in
  many of the utilities using the -m command line option.

- The -n option now accepts a list of indexes, supporting ranges.

- The new -U (uniq) option for recsel removes duplicated fields in the
  output records.

- The new -q (quick) option allows to quickly search for the desired
  record without having to provide a complete selection expression.

- Auto generated fields are now considered integers by default.  This
  avoids repetitive patterns in record descriptors involving %auto and
  %type.

- Tab characters are now allowed in blank lines betwwen records.

- The API in rec.h is now better documented with comments, and
  improved.

- recfix now exits with an error status if there is a parse error in
  some input file.

- The usage of the internal data structures has been _vastly_
  improved, resulting in a much faster operation.

- Internal cleanup and code factorization.

- Many, many, many bug fixes :D
