comment Trouble w/ bash programmable completion of filenames matching patterns
"you can add the ?i flag to make the search case-insensitive." --> Thanks for pointing me to that. I use a lot of regular expressions in other work I do and I'd never seen that before; however, it doesn't work for bash file globbing. Thanks for the link to the other answer... We'll see if I can get some inspiration from that.

comment gpg asks for password even with --passphrase
Sorry then @Nima. I don't know what to tell you. With GnuPG v1.4 you shouldn't need to do anything else to pass the passphrase in with either of those options.

comment List any file ending with .in and corresponding .out with shell script
This is how I would have done it. Sweet and simple. I'd simplify it to one line though: for f in *.in; do [[ -e ${f%.in}.out ]] && echo $f ${f%.in}.out; done

@dubiousjim: Yes, I'm sure that [[ ... && ...]] is processed as expected. Take a look at the bash man page under the [[ expression ]] section.

Daaaayumn. I had no idea BASH could save substrings to a variable like that. That BASH_REMATCH array is awesome. Niiice! PS: You could simplify that into one [[ ... && ... ]] expression.

comment Saving files to NTFS is corrupted?
I've been using NTFS-formatted 500G & 1T external drives with linux (for media storage) for the last few years without any problems...
