Got it. Thanks.

comment Delete duplicate lines pairwise?
That is true. In that case, wouldn't a loop to print the fields $2 to $NF be more robust?

comment Delete duplicate lines pairwise?
I tried uniq -c input | awk '{if ($1 %2 == 1) { print $2 } }' and it seemed to work equally well. Any reason the substr version is better?

comment replace a string 6 line after matching string
@Quay My bad. The backslashes at the end of the line were unnecessary. I removed them and added some explanation about the regex substitution. Hope this helps.

comment Where is the nginx executable on Debian?

comment Problems installing DEbian 8.2 (Jessie) on msi computer (during network install)
Try "Expert Install" mode and configure the debconf priority to its lowest setting: this will ask you a ton of questions during the installation process. If I remember correctly, one of those questions should be where you would like to read additional installation files/drivers from.
