comment What does “--” (double-dash) mean? (also known as “bare double dash”)
@l0b0: the pattern to search is normally one of the positional parameters, so it can fit after the --, though you are correct in noting that my example above could also be written as grep -e -v file (although that is very confusing).

comment How to get a procesess's actual memory usage (including data in swap)
You probably meant:github.com/pixelb/ps_mem :-) Does this summary includes memory mapped files? does "shared" includes both shared library and shared data pages?

comment How to get a procesess's actual memory usage (including data in swap)
Thanks for the pgrep suggestion. At least on my system, a process' proc entries cannot be read without root permissions.

comment Parsing arbitrary natural language dates under BSD
Right - I was mistaken in my assertion previously - I read the numbers in correctly (they were very similar - Levenshtein distance 2). fifolog_reader does behave weirdly with some (but not all) natural language dates.

comment Parsing arbitrary natural language dates under BSD
Thanks again! your date expression is better than mine, so I'll fix my answer. BTW - on my system (based on FreeBSD 9.1), that expression also works with your fifolog_reader command (which frankly I didn't notice until you mentioned it now - I read an earlier version of your answer and then only read the bottom of the update, sorry :-) ).
