The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, October 8.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:


   This month Brad Vokey will (attempt to) give a demonstration
   of Xataface: an open-source, full-featured, web application
   framework for building front-ends to MySQL databases. Xataface
   auto-magically generates web forms, lists, menus, and more, so
   that non-technical end users can interact with MySQL databases
   safely and effectively using an easy to build custom web

   For this month's RTFM, Gilbert Detillieux will talk about the
   trap(1p) command, used for signal handling in Bourne shell
   scripts. Proper use of "trap" is important in coding scripts
   that clean up after themselves.

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30pm on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

   Please note our *NEW* meeting location for this month: Room 1L08,
   Lockhart Hall, University of Winnipeg, entrance on Ellice Ave.
   between Spence St. and Balmoral St.

   Parking is available on the surrounding streets and in the lots
   on nearby streets.  Look for signage once you're at the building,
   or ask a security guard.
