I take it it's supposed to do one of those things, based on $DECISION?

comment How can I make C-j send a newline in the tmux command line?
@Ramesh The relevant details are "C-j behaves the same as C-m"; including the actual diff lines doesn't seem particularly helpful

comment X resources for keboard layout in ~/.Xresources
You can't comment because you keep making new anonymous accounts, you're up to three now. Use unix.stackexchange.com/users/account-recovery to recover the one you used to ask the question, and then register it so you can login normally, and you'll be fine.

comment SSH tunneling fails with “administratively prohibited: open failed”
@jimmij In what way is this not an answer? I don't think it's right, since 2222 isn't privileged, but that's a different matter

comment Split a file into two
This is how to split into a bunch of files with a fixed number of lines, or how to split evenly into a fixed number of files. Is there a way to split into one 1000-line file and one file with everything else? That's what he was asking for; I couldn't find it in the man page

comment Optional arguments after or before the mandatory arguments?
For what it's worth, virtually all programs that take arguments that way won't care about the order (they frequently use getopt, which handles all that); you can do cut test.txt -c2 and get the same result. If you don't care about the order, putting the optional arguments at the end seems trivial, so I'm not sure what your question is. Are you asking if there's an easy way to handle optional arguments at the beginning?

comment Is there any need to take further action over ShellShock
I don't really understand why we need a special question for this. It's like any bug in any program -- keep it updated via your package manager

comment Where are zsh and mksh incompatible with bash?
The whole shellshock thing seems to have nothing to do with the core question and is just distracting people, so I removed it
