comment How to run a command before download with apt-get?
What exactly does "The script must run after calling apt-get but before apt-get accesses any online resource" mean? What part of the producion apt-get needs to be running before your hook can execute properly?

comment lshw shows a different amount of RAM than the 'free' command. Missing RAM?
Try cat /proc/cmdline to see if there's a mem limit? (edit: yep, it's mem=)

comment Bind C-i and TAB keys to different commands in terminal applications via .inputrc
The problem you'd have with the scenario in your edit is that the equivalence of tab and ^I is universally relied on. There is no "control I" code in ASCII, that's just how you produce a tab character. There's no control I code in any character encoding I can think of offhand.

comment Turn list into single line with delimiter
A million IP's is <16M, you'd need an awfully big list to blow limits here. Using search for eof detection is more problematic, as is this'll run O(N^2) on the input file size. sed 'H;1h;$!d;x;s/\n/ | /g' is linear.

comment bash $(printf “%s\n”) does not create multiline
It's not echo doing it, the shell does wordsplitting after parameter expansion for command arguments.

@Costas that's by far the best method if there's no tabs, why not make it an answer?

comment How to weave the words of a string into a block of strings in vim?
>5min see :help put-Visual-mode, the per-command docs don't mention it but reading all of the copy-move section gets you there. I think I picked this up for a *.SO post somewhere.

@LievenKeersmaekers Well, here's a guy from 2011 complaining it's a bug :-) ... The only place I ever recall seeing this was in a *.SO post somewhere I can't find atm. :help p sure doesn't turn up anything.
