comment Grep: Multi Line Search with AND clause
The linked post worked only for same-line (possilby overlapping) patterns. Therefore I deleted the link.

comment Grep: Multi Line Search with AND clause
The backslash seems to be unecessary or wrong. Normally \I is automatically replaced by I in the command line as there is no \I escape sequence. So why *\Item*.xml? If you really need a backslash, use `\\`.

Should both pattern be on the same line or can they be separated by newlines (like the title suggests)?

comment `find` return value: Is the find man page wrong?
Thanks! The exit status 0 if "All path operands were traversed successfully." of the POSIX is also more precise than the GNU man page ("0 if all files processed successfully").

AFAIK, there is no standardized update command. But you can always do something like The Universal install script ;-)

comment Principles of file indexing in Linux
locate is just a user-level tool indexing files. It has more or less nothing to do with the actual implementation of the file system in linux. locate has its own database, which you can update with updatedb.

comment gvfs and permissions on a remote external usb drive
Can you copy a file to the destination as the same user? It sounds like a special file operation are not supported over gvfs/sftp. Debugging with strace could give a hint. If the program can write some bytes, it is probably not a permission error. Can you run the programs directly on your raspberry pi?

comment Aligning Hexdump Data in a Specific format?
What have you tried? Switching to a higher-level language could simplify the thing. How are the packages separated?
