(g)awk script to remove last dir from PATH

This script chops off the last dir off of the PATH (still need to assign back to PATH)


echo $PATH | gawk -F':' '{
for(i=1; i<NF; i++) {
if(i) {
printf (":");
}
printf("%s", $i);
}
}'

Writing an onLoad function that includes a delay.

This code was written out of desperation when I could not use an embedded APPLET's isActive() function to check if the APPLET was loaded. Instead, I waited for 500 milliseconds. Hopefully, there are better uses for this code.


<SCRIPT>

function
OnLoadFunction(milliseconds_time)
{
setTimeout("delayedOnLoadFunction()", milliseconds_time);
}

function delayedOnLoadFunction()
{
/* Function body */
}
</SCRIPT>

<body
onLoad="OnLoadFunction(500)">
