comment Convert TeX accents to UTF-8 in Python
@manolius please edit your question to add extra information, it is hard to read and easy to miss int he comments. You need to show us the script you're using (or at least, the part of it necessary to understand what you're doing). If I understand correctly, you seem to think that the TeX \"{u} == ü which is not the case. Why are you using TeX-style? Why doesn't your text file contain /home/username/Documents/Kühnelt.pdf? Anyway, please edit and clarify.

comment How to create a script that merges two files to get a specific output in the korn shell?
Please edit your post and include the script in your (now deleted) answer. Then, clarify precisely what your requirements are and which part is still giving you trouble, and this can be reopened. Do you really need to do this in a script? All that's needed here is printf "%s\t%-12s\t%s\n" "Name" "On-Call" "Phone"; join <(sort file1) <(sort file2) | tr ' ' '\t'

comment “not a valid identifier” when I do “export $PATH”
@Archemar yes, of course two years after. Why not? Remember that this is more of a wiki than a forum. It's great that the OP cam back and cleaned up the question. No reason to post unhelpful comments.

This is indeed off topic here. You could instead ask on Super User.

comment Why do I receive a “/bin/bash cannot find command” error for an alias?
@Score_Under true, but that would (of course) only be for one user, which may or may not be what the OP wants, and not all systems have a user-writeable directory in the default PATH. Some include ~/bin if present but others don't.

comment Should I learn Linux using Raspbian or Debian?
@eyoung100 raspbian will have some differences. It's compiled for arm and I don't know what its default shell is. Is it a busybox or an actual bash? And the OP may well not realize it, why should they? They're new to Linux after all.

comment Shell intervals using awk
@FloHimself well, now that I've seen what you and don_crissti came up with, I'd use awk :) I had thought the numerical comparison would choke on 10:13 and was instead thinking of using date -d 10:15 +%s to convert to seconds and compare that way.

comment Shell intervals using awk
Why awk? It is not very easy in awk but is trivial using other tools. Also, please delete one of the two duplicate questions you have posted. Keep either this one or the one on Stack Overflow.
