comment socat disable double echo
Nope. That too does not echo anything while I'm typing, until I press ENTER. I want to see and be able to edit while I type, just not have the line echoed back again after I press ENTER.

comment What does bash -l do and why can't it find ssh?
Bash does not, by default, take a command to run as an option - at least not according to man bash on my system. That's what the -c option is for; do you want bash -l -c ssh? The plain bash -l ssh starts a login shell and tries to run a file named ssh as a shell script, whereas your ssh is probably an executable.

comment mapping <C-F9> in gvim: no response
XFCE 4.6.1/XFWM on Xubuntu 10.04 LTS "Lucid" with Gnome 2.30.2. In fact most CTRL key combinations seem not to work as expected e.g. <C-9> doesn't show up as anything either but <C-V>, <C-K> do work so the control key itself isn't broken.

comment Why could the size of the “dot” file “.” exceed 4096?
(2) Sadly, no longer. This used to be possible on old UNIX versions.

(1) See also unix.stackexchange.com/questions/38639/… - short answer, delete the directory and recreate it.

comment How to do multiline search and replace text (delete) recursively
3. The command is correct like that. You can change the $i.tmp to just $i at the end to overwrite the files in-place (if you look at the sedml script, it uses $1.tmp to make the changes and then moves the file to $2 at the end, if successful). 4. The command as given will work if the delimiters are exactly as given and there's no # symbols between the delimiters. (You may want to check that it works correctly on one or two files manually, sedml FILE 's@#c3284d#[^#]*#/c3284d#@@g' FILE.tmp and see if the result is what you expect (this version doesn't overwrite the original).
