comment How do you move all files (including hidden) in a directory to another?
Personally, I think *nix specific questions and answers should be off-topic on SU. With the current rules we end up with tons of content collisions between the two - like this question.

Not the best when you're moving a lot of large files, but I guess it would work.

@daSong Don't you mean whatismyip.org?

comment What is a regular file?
Ah, you're right - it's aliased to rm -i.

comment Default exit code when process is terminated?
How in the world do you find this, or even know where to look? I bow before your genius.

comment Open VirtualBox GUI?
Turns out I had to install virtualbox-qt, then virtualbox showed up in dmenu (since I'm using xmonad).

comment Nicely close windows in xmonad?
This may work for Chrome, but it still would be nice to have something I could use for any window.

comment Reset atq list to zero?
@terdon I saw something where I thought "hmm, I don't understand how that works!" but I couldn't figure it out on my own, so I came here!

comment Reset atq list to zero?
@terdon Naw, it's just idle curiosity. I was curious that none of the files in FILES section of man at seemed to have a reference to this identifier, so I wondered where the number could possibly come from?

comment Reset atq list to zero?
For some reason I can't restart my atd service, I get a start: Rejected send message... error. Do you think that restarting the service would reset that number?

comment NTP is synced properly but still doesn't update the time?
Haha, good to know. Having not seen valid results on that screen before, it would have been nice if ntp was a bit more explicit in saying that something was wrong.

comment Find where a bash command is defined or sourced from?
@slm I was actually positive that there was already such a question on the site, but my searches didn't yield such a question - most likely because of my wording. I agree with meta though, that if my search doesn't result in an answer to my question that the question can still be asked, and that these questions improve the site. I also agree that this is a duplicate and should be closed - just not deleted.

comment zcat a file line by line?
The thing is, my program is the thing that is doing the zcat via a system call. So it doesn't actually use the | character. But I do wonder if this is still applicable to the popen syscall mentioned in the comments by n.m.

comment zcat a file line by line?
@n.m. I understand how pipes work in Linux, and that they have a capability similar to what I am looking for here in that if I zcat | someCommand, that zcat will only provide what someCommand is looking for. Is there a someCommand you are aware of that would actually answer my question?

comment Why is sshd looking at a non-existent public key file?
That is the directory listing of .ssh on the server, not the client. I feel confident that the contents of .ssh on the client are good because my sshkeys work with other machines.

comment Is there a command line tool to insert line breaks into a long string?
fold appears to have similar behavior to fmt when the -s option is used.

comment How do you write specific bytes to a file?
Although this does answer my question, it doesn't help in my situation. I have a very large input of hexadecimal numbers that I would like to pipe into a file. I will update the question with this.

comment Is it possible to get specific information about how a file is compressed?
I wonder if possibly there is a compression utility that uses a simpler algorithm useable for education purposes.

comment How to fix Linux filename tab autocomplete that is appending a space instead of trailing slash on directories?
This worked. Guess what the culprit was - Adobe Reader. facepalm Think I'll have much luck reporting that bug? I at least have to try, I guess.
