comment Why are filenames that start with a dot hidden? Can I hide files without using a dot as their first character?
The Wikipedia page no longer contains information on this. However, Rob Pike worked on UNIX at Bell Labs and made a short post about the topic: plus.google.com/u/0/+RobPikeTheHuman/posts/R58WgWwN9jp

comment Script to split string
This might not be in the domain of bash scripting anymore. Using python instead might be beneficial.

comment How to add a newline to the end of a file?
Startup time does not add up quick, it's a one time cost. And yes, python is faster now than before and if needed you can compile it to native with Nuitka or Shedskin. There is also the "psyco" module for Python 2. In addition to this, there are libraries like numpy and scipy, which are reasonably fast for maths. There are also OpenCL bindings if you wish to use the GPU. So yes, I think your experience sounds outdated and/or misguided.

The startup time for Python is 0.03 seconds here. Do you really consider that to be problematic?

comment RasPi - USB microphone locks up
I have experienced similar problems with an USB keyboard. Sometimes, the input just lags for several seconds at a time. Have you tried rebooting, disconnecting everything related to USB, only connect the powered USB hub and connect every USB device through that?

MattDMo, the script has more features. Also, his 3-liner was posted one hour after mine. Using $COLORS is a nice suggestion, but honestly, who doesn't have colors in their terminals these days?
