I like to code and I do it a lot. I want to build software to save the planet. Passionate polyglot programmer, generalist with specialties. Code reviewer, unit tester, driver of change. I get things done.

I make free Android apps such as Programming Quiz, websites such as bashoneliners.com, and other open source stuff. I wrote a book on Bazaar Version Control, and an article on shell tips & tricks for Linux Journal.

I blog, tweet (@janosgyerik), and post "pro tips" on CoderWall.

comment Adding a Column of values in a tab delimited file
@Ron sed is most practical for pattern substitution and saving in-place. For your requirement of saving the file it was a relatively convenient option. If you don't need to write back to the same file you're processing, then awk is usually much easier to work with.

comment How to create a patch file for new source code
@AmirAfghani I improved my answer. See my last word of caution, about what happens when using such patch file. And maybe unaccept the answer for a while, maybe others will answer it better. You can accept a few days later if it still makes sense.

comment Is there a Linux deep diff tool that also compares file attributes?
I don't know. If not, as a workaround, perhaps you could print the files + attributes you're interested in and diff the text output: diff <(find ...) <(find ...)
