comment Displaying a list of all *.java
Yeah, you can't use -R together with a glob pattern that you want matched on each file. If you want to do that recursively, use find.

comment Can one core on a multicore linux system be dedicated to one user-space app?
If you don't get a timely answer here, you could start looking into cgroups, I think specifically the cpuset parameter; see e.g. here (scroll down to the "cgroups" section). Hopefully excluding everything but a specific group from a specific core is not too convoluted.

comment Change a locale definition (as opposed to a locale setting)
I'd suggest you copy the locale file you are interested in, give that copy a unique name (e.g., en_XX -- I don't know what the restrictions here are, trial and error might suffice), make whatever changes you want to that, and use it as the locale. You'll have to regenerate the list or whatever afterward, etc.

comment Dual boot windows on second harddrive, UEFI/GPT system
@sobek Thanks for that -- corrected. If you've added something to a file in /etc/grub.d and it is not being added when you generate the configuration, something weird is going on. If you run grub-mkconfig without -o it spits to standard out, that might help confirm or deny that your additions are being processed.

comment How can I share my internet connection (wireless) with an ethernet only computer?
Seems like it might be a good answer but iptables-save does not make anything "persistent across reboot". It spits out the current rules. You have to save those to a file and then reload them at boot. E.g., iptables-save > /etc/iptables.rules and then on Raspbian, add iptables-restore < /etc/iptables.rules to /etc/rc.local. I hope the other details here are correct, I have not done this before.

@YoshiBotX I don't see why this should be distro specific.

comment using a pty like a socket?
Actually it doesn't look like it works with ptys anyway -- but you can write to any pty you own pretty simply. Find the node with tty and then try, e.g. ls -l > /dev/pts/8 from another terminal.

comment Understanding WiFi routing and gateway
You haven't actually said what does and doesn't work with your existing configuration. Someone might come along, look and this, and write the whole thing for you, but if they don't, you should break it down and ask more specific questions (here, not at Rpi.SE) about the things that don't work.
