Pubsubhubbub – an extension to Atom (and RSS)

A simple, open, server-to-server web-hook-based pubsub (publish/subscribe) protocol as an extension to Atom (and RSS), delivering web applications near-real-time information about what’s new or changed.

A programmable web, the PubSubHubbub protocol is made by a few Googlers in their spare time to improve  the speed at which Atom and RSS feeds travel around the web. It is is available for many Google services, including FeedBurner, Reader and Blogger.

How to check if environment variable is set using shell script?

If you are wondering how can we check whether an environment variable is set or not in the system, here are few methods :
1. Manually a. Run “set” command on the shell prompt, it will list out all the variables set in the system : # set b. Run “echo” command on the shell to print the value of the environment variable : # echo $<environment variable>
2. Through Shell Script Let say we intent to check whether environment variable “envVar” is set or not?
a. Method 1 – checking if “envVar” is set to “” (no value) : if [ "$envVar" == "" ] then echo “envVar is not set” else echo “envVar is set” fi
b.Method 2 – checking if “envVar” is non NULL : if [ -n "$envVar" ] then echo “envVar has non NULL value, it is set.” else echo “envVar has NULL value, it is not set.” fi
