comment free alternative to Stat/Transfer for Linux?
Rather than refering to a software which hardly anybody here will know about, you should rather ask for a Linux solution for what you want to do. There are zillions of tools to convert data from different database or other formats, you'll want to be more specific.

comment How to find out the number of network interfaces available in a linux system?
Linux doesn't allow creating network interfaces with newline in their name, but it allows network interfaces whose name starts with ., so you'd need ls -A here.

revised How to compare two dates without using Stat?
order matters, you don't want to scan the whole dirtree to search for a file with the name, just check the file itself.

"-r file" is GNU-specific.

comment How to print control characters with escape sequences?
Is it just the ESC (0x1b) character you want to convert to \E, or other control characters?

@vyom, note that I was note suggesting to upgrade to 14.04, just to install the linux-image-generic-lts-trusty 12.04 package to get a supported kernel in your 12.04. You'd get that kernel automatically if you installed 12.04.5 now.

comment How to sort/reformat text information in a file?
@G-Man, indeed, that's a bit cheeky. awk is a poor choice here as an answer let alone a tag for the question, I don't understand why that was approved. The whole Q&A is poorly worded and unlikely to be useful to anyone anyway, no need to lose sleep over it.
