comment Why is this script not copying the files inside my source directory?
count++ doesn't do what you expect it to do and is an error (you're running the command count++). To evaluate an expression you need to use @ count++. Also, don't use tcsh for scripting if it can at all be avoided. It had many limitations that are not easily worked around. Use a Bourne shell /bin/sh, bash, whatever) or a "real" programming language.

@Chen You can also just use the compatible [ instead of the bash-specific [[: [ "${BRANCH_NAME}" = "master" ]

comment How can I search for bolded or underlined text?
This doesn't seem to work well in xterm but it's an interesting idea and I might be able to base something off of it... Thanks.

I always assumed that man uses ANSI escape codes, but apparently not (roff/man seems to pre-date that). Meh.

comment How can I search for bolded or underlined text?
@StéphaneChazelas I've never been able to use info without getting seriously lost all over the place. e.g. typing info ls and searching for hello brings me to ... I have no idea where ... but it's not the ls documentation ... Pressing Pageup a few times brings me to ... somewhere else ... but also not the ls documentation ... I find it seriously confusing :-/ But perhaps I need to re-investigate (it's been years since I seriously looked at info)

comment vim: Force specific syntax via command-line argument
Typically you're better off using set filetype=sql (or ft=sql for short); that will also load the indentation files and such and not just the syntax highlighting...

comment Why do we use su - and not just su?
The security example is clever, but are there are real security problems if I ssh into a remote server? Because I can't really think of any...

comment Does Arch Linux work on i386 cpu architecture
@user3405291 For most practical purposes in the year 2016, i386 and i686 mean the same thing and can be used interchangeably.

comment problems with running tcsh file
Also, if at all possible, avoid scripting in tcsh. It has all sorts of quirks that will come back and bite you and it can be very difficult to debug if something goes wrong. Use some variant of a Bourne shell (/bin/sh or /bin/bash) or a "real" programming language (such as Python, Ruby, Lua, whatever you prefer). It'll make your life a lot easier.

comment problems with running tcsh file
You will want to put the echo "too small" on its own line, as it won't work with the then like this. Other than that, it works fine for me. I don't get the Usage: tcsh ... error. I don't quite understand the first code-block tough? That looks like half a line from the actual script? Was that intended?
