Guest Additions The previous chapter covered getting started with VirtualBox and installing operating systems in a virtual machine. For any serious and interactive use, the VirtualBox Guest Additions will make your life much easier by providing closer integration between host and guest and improving the interactive performance of guest systems. This chapter describes the Guest Additions in detail.
As mentioned in Section 1.2, “Some terminology”, the Guest Additions are designed to be installed inside a virtual machine after the guest operating system has been installed. The VirtualBox Guest Additions for all supported guest operating systems are provided as a single CD-ROM image file which is called VBoxGuestAdditions.iso.

Types of variables As seen in the examples above, shell variables are in uppercase characters by convention. Bash keeps a list of two types of variables: 22.214.171.124. Global variables Global variables or environment variables are available in all shells. Below is a typical output: 126.96.36.199. Local variables are only available in the current shell. Below is a diff file made by comparing printenv and set output, after leaving out the functions which are also displayed by the set command: 188.8.131.52. Apart from dividing variables in local and global variables, we can also divide them in categories according to the sort of content the variable contains. String variablesInteger variablesConstant variablesArray variables We'll discuss these types in Chapter 10. 3.2.2. Variables are case sensitive and capitalized by default. To set a variable in the shell, use VARNAME="value" Putting spaces around the equal sign will cause errors.

You can adjust where Mac OS X saves a captured screenshot to any other location, here is how to do this: Launch Terminal and use the following syntax: defaults write com.apple.screencapture location /path/ For example, if I want to have the screenshots appear in my Pictures folder, I would use: defaults write com.apple.screencapture location ~/Pictures/ To have the changes take effect, you then must type: killall SystemUIServer So the next time you take a screenshot (or as Windows converts like to say, Print Screen on a Mac), the screenshot file will appear at the location you specified. You can change the saved screenshot location back to the default setting by specifying the desktop again: defaults write com.apple.screencapture location ~/Desktop/ Again, you’d need to kill SystemUIServer for changes to take effect.
