Also in this issue: parsing command line options with getopt, checking your Ruby code with metric_fu, and building a secure Squid proxy. All this and more, and all you have to do is get your hot sweaty hands on the latest copy of Linux Journal.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
