comment gparted without GUI / X
my assumption after observing this has been that gparted is calling out to resize2fs etc., and that does seem to be the case. E.g. see the last question on this 2014 interview.

comment How do I resize a windows partition without using gparted?
Personally if you're using fdisk / gdisk for the backup, it'd seem simpler to stick to that for the partition editing as well. In particular parted's print command seems vague about offsets, to verify this sort of work (e.g. for large values it shows the nearest whole GB). Though the rescue command ("rescue a lost [deleted] partition near START and END") seems nice. I'd want to use testdisk for that, but it's nice to know in case you've only got parted.

comment How do I resize a windows partition without using gparted?
I feel the description "resize the partition" omits the important detail of needing to delete the partition and re-create a smaller one. But good point about saving the partition table before that.

comment How to remove nodes from a HUGE (>2gb) XML file?
Note that xmlreader should be able to work because it's a streaming API. I guess you're on 32-bit & it hasn't been built with "large file support", so it's using a 32-bit int for file offsets (which only goes up to 2GB) :(.
