comment Do there exist terms or classifications that describe the type of command line program you are writing?
And also, are you suggesting that are no subclassifications for the kinds of interactivity?

For each case a-d, can I classify it as either a shell, script or application knowing that the only interface is via a command line?

comment What activities, outside of writing code, have been shown to improve one skill as a programmer?
Could I phrase the question differently to ask for more fact based research or more tangible experiences? Like it was a cognitive sciences question, for example?

comment Why would an employer ask for a 'long' code sample?
I didn't think of that. I was thinking more of writing a web app or service using PHP/Python/Ruby. You can create a pretty robust program in less than 1000 lines using a scripting language, especially if you use templating for html markup.

comment What should my “large codebase sample” look like?
This question is related to What should my "code sample" look like? and Why would an employer ask for a 'long' code sample?

comment Where can I get feedback and support from other programmers in real time?
Would you recommend IRC for chatting about how to approach programming a certain task using a specific language in general rather than chatting about how to do something using a particular product or library?

I'm confused. Would you use Twitter to carry out a conversation or just as a way to broadcast your question to attract people who will then converse with you in some other medium (email, IM, etc.)?
