Maybe source control would work better for you?

comment replace numbers with zero while we have the lines number
Do you mean first and second number on line 5? Can you define your problem a little better than "some numbers," maybe you mean something like, "replace all numbers less than 1.0 with 0?"

comment Why is the Linux kernel 15+ million lines of code?
@JonathanLeaders you would never run a kernel configured for a desktop on an embedded system. Our embedded system has 13 modules and has removed all the hardware support we don't need (along with plenty of other customizations). Stop comparing Desktops to embedded systems. Linux works well because it supports everything and can be customized to only include what you care about. And those 4k modules are really great on desktop systems: when my last laptop died I just put the hard drive in a much newer laptop and everything just worked.

comment testdisk foremost dd photorec after math help needed
Archive everything so you can search again in a couple years if you remember something specific you missed. Then come up with metrics for each type, like "PDFs are between 100k and 5MB," etc. and script the removal of most of the junk. You may need to approach each file type separately (e.g. there are tools to look at EXIF data for pictures but they won't help with PDFs); file(1) is one of the few general-purpose tools you can use but photorec may have already done the same thing.

comment Why is the Linux kernel 15+ million lines of code?
@Izkata cloc against my 3.17 kernel reports only 58k lines in Documentation/ and 80% of that is XML, while grep -R . | wc reports nearly 400k lines. So I think that number is important because it indicates the method used to count lines.

@C_B @Davidmh I think that's a straight wc count, which has the benefit of being simpler to define than "lines of code" :)

find /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/ -name '*.ko' | wc says a little over 3,000. And FWIW, this is Debian, "the universal operating system," which provides a full operating system that should work on any modern computer, built around the Linux kernel.

comment grep command to extract certain word only
Did you mean to include the p flag? And it doesn't work the way I'd expect, at least not with ifconfig output.
