comment Only one line break in fasta file
The way I understand it you want to merge two lines and shift everything below up by one. Does that mean the last two lines in the file don't have >? Or the last > will go empty?

comment Tmpfs with overflow on disk?
The functionality you desire is already the default behaviour. Linux automatically caches files in RAM for you. Maybe you should describe your use case in more detail.

comment Is possible not to turn off an SSD in suspend/sleep/S3?
It's probably not possible to control this with software; you could test whether it works at all using an external power supply (unless its a laptop where you can't hook such things up). Even so it might not work as the SSD might notice the host is gone. There is probably a completely different solution to your problem.

comment How can I extract the hash value of a LUKS device?
@MariusMatutiae the key is in the key material and its location is stated by luksDump (key material offset). This material is quite large (128KiB per key slot?), done on purpose so recovering a single sector won't give you anything to work with. For the algorithm details, I'm not too clear myself, it would be a separate question.
