The Beauty of the Command-Line

I've just started generating this section of the site with XML and XSLT. It's very cool. And just a few hours ago while I was looking for a means of automatically generating the XML fragment that contains the date, I discovered how cool the Unix date command is. It's really great, very well-designed.

I'm a command-line believer. I used to think they were awful, but that was because of years stuck with DOS. Don't dismiss command-lines if you've never tried using them on Unix.
