comment How to view second hard drive with Windows 7 in Linux
/dev/sda would be an unpartitioned raw device, and /dev/sda1 the first partition on the same physical drive, so what you're describing can't possibly be what you have.

Or, in non-GNU implementations of cat, e.g. MacOS/X, take your cat to the vet ... cat -vet

comment Qt program not invoked by cron
You're welcome. I can't think of any document that states this explicitly. It's more of a matter of knowing how Unix/Linux works, and realising that crond runs before X. So, even if a cron job gets run as a user, it won't inherit the knowledge of the users X-Session (or environment variables that are set after you log in).

comment cat combining not all file formats - but which ones?
Not really. You'd have to compile a list of "headerless file formats" in your own environment, and script a solution using your list and e.g. the file command to decide what to conCATenate and what not. Unix tools aren't built to cater to all possible corner cases of what a user might like them to do. They do one job, and do that well.
