comment Is w command safe for users?
Nice quote from zip manual (see --password option): (...) Many multi-user operating systems provide ways for any user to see the current command line of any other user; even on standalone systems there is always the threat of over-the-shoulder peeking. Storing the plaintext password as part of a command line in an automated script is even worse. Whenever possible, use the non-echoing, interactive prompt to enter passwords. (...).

comment How to correctly add a path to PATH?
It's worth noticing that in latest Debian, Ubuntu etc., if $HOME/bin exists, it will be automagically added to PATH. See $HOME/.profile where the 'magic' happens: if [ -d "$HOME/bin" ] ; then PATH="$HOME/bin:$PATH" ; fi.

comment Lot of dependencies while uninstalling libimobiledevice2 library
E: The update command takes no arguments. apt-get update does not update a package, it updates the package database. apt-get update && apt-get upgrade doesn't upgrade anything because libimobiledevice5 is different package which is not installed.

comment Is w command safe for users?
I know that it's preferred way of passing password but sometimes (i.e. in bash script) I need to use hardcoded password.
