comment How to install tarball packages on a Debian based distribution?
Those are archives. You need to unpack them and see for instructions inside. Usually it's ./configure, make, make install, but I'm sure someone will provide better answer to you, with links where you can learn this very basic things before you actually try to build anything

comment Creating recursively sorted RAR archive
Thanks Eli for your answer, but unfortunately none of provided examples stores file sorted here. I'm also on Ubuntu. find * | sort lists files sorted but find * | sort | xargs rar ... stores files in unsorted order for some reason. I tried also -n@ (with additional sort command) which works fine as in your snippets, but again it does not store sorted files. I could provide screenshot from terminal if anyone requests it. So for me, snippet that works is the last update to my question: for d in */ ; do rar a -r archive.rar $d*.txt ; done which loops over folders and is acceptable to me

Yeah, I started with gzipped tar and then wanted to update archive... rest is history, w/o even mentioning all handy rar options

Yes, I do, as I pipe uncompressed output to stdout with rar p. BTW unrar -v switch you mention, does not do anything here - did you test it?

comment diff - output line-numbers
Just great! Thanks :) I tried to guess from help listing, but w/o success, and thought I misread it. Then I made what I wanted with Python (difflib module with indexed files per line in list object) only that I couldn't use diff <(pipe buffer1) <(pipe buffer2) with Python, like I planed with diff. Now you saved me :)

comment make grep output without trailing newline
ah tr... interesting, works both on LF and CRLF files. I would think \010\013 for some reason, and also \f\r works correctly. About the result: I don't actually put the output in variable but as variable enclosed in $() in pattern for grep match - some pipe | grep -o " $(...) ". Thanks for comments

comment make grep output without trailing newline
Thanks Chris for your effort and correct answer. I still haven't got to awk, as to know the syntax, what I should, should not... but your explanation makes it simple in this case. Cheers
