comment If I install malicious software what may it do?
Your question is very broad/vague, but I think the first part is interesting (if dpkg could already execute malicious code in file.deb).

comment What does this regex mean? <!--.*?-->
Why downvote question and then upvote answers? It looks like legit beginner question. It could benefit from some details (e.g. which regex flavour: vim, perl, extended .. or example usage).

rm 2015 is enough. It will remove the link only (no files)

comment Folder alias / Symbolic link to return to back folder
I just noticed that it is a relative link in your question. so I edited the answer. ~ is the home directory. / is the root node. Also, . is a synonym for the current directory.

comment How do I get the exit code of a process, which runs through wine
I don't know about wine, but if $EXECUTABLE talks to stdout or stderr you could grep for an error or message which only appears upon failure. $EXECUTABLE | grep "error" when using a pipe, the variable $? has the exit value of the last program in the pipe. If you're interested in this solution, I can make it an answer.

comment Is there a supposed way of installing several versions of a program on linux?
Correct. Almost all software distributed as source code support this. If they don't, you can always point to the compiled binaries (wirhout make install) with the PATH variable.

comment w command for the other network hosts
I doubt there's something built in. Neither is rwho, I think.... I haven't come across it before and it is not installed by default on my distro (Arch)

comment Terminal output from a program not opened in terminal
I doubt there is a generic answer to this question as it depends on the program you're using. Some GUI programs log to stdout/stderr (that's what you're seeing), others write into log files (you can follow them at any time, e.g. with tail -f /var/log/messages). What do you have in mind?

Maybe worth trying? Uses masscan, but you can select the IP ranges. blog.erratasec.com/2014/09/… Note: I haven't tried that myself.

comment Sync Pi with local directory
weird. it seems to think that the path you're providing to ssh is a unison profile. Try to wrap this into quotes -sshargs="-i ~/.ssh/me"

comment Sync Pi with local directory
sorry, this was a typo on my side: use only a single dash, i.e. -sshargs=-i ~/.ssh/me

comment Linux: Locating text file from a string input
try to run the script I provided. It already asks the user to input a string, which is then searched for. again, be careful about wildcards.

comment How can I effectively purge a manually installed package?
glad you made it. Now you know that installing a package manually can be very inconvenient -- try to avoid it if possible.

comment How can I effectively purge a manually installed package?
it seems that sbcl is a wrapper (maybe just a shell script, or an alias) which then calls /usr/local/bin/sbcl. Check: which sbcl, whereis sbcl alias, grep sbcl .bashrc. You might find something.
