We can help with specific questions you have, but you can't just copy/paste your homework into the question box

comment Protection from malware on a Linux “desktop”
There are tons; at the moment this question is basically answered by googling "linux antivirus". If you have a specific problem that's something we can help with, but "how can I prevent all malware" is too broad

comment Are External API's secure?
Programming questions aren't on-topic here, and I'm not really even sure what you're asking

comment How to create a script that can't be easily exited
Do you want to prevent interrupts from killing a script, or do you want to prevent users from canceling the update? The latter is more general and has simpler solutions, so you're going to end up getting answers for that even if you asked for the former

comment SUID accidently removed from /bin/su file
You can't just make your own copy of su and expect it to work; that'd be pretty alarming if you could. The standard su is owned by root and setuid so it runs as root

comment Passing named arguments to shell scripts
This doesn't work with the syntax the OP specified; they want -a 1 -b mitsos -c karamitsos

comment Redirecting stdout to a file you don't have write permission on
@k961 I used chown to change the owner; it was just an example

comment Why is this Python package trying to use a non-existent gcc?
@DevNull How is this a question? It seems like it would work fine, albeit a bit hacky

comment “Script” command for two terminals
It sounds to me like the OP is talking about how to use the script command, but it's unclear

comment How to set environment variable for BACI compiler and interpreter?
Well, I'm not sure what the problem is, but I reopened the question. Might want to add an error message or something

comment How to set environment variable for BACI compiler and interpreter?
Are you just running bacc? Don't do ./bacc, that's telling it to look for bacc in the current directory. If you run bacc by itself it will search your path in order

comment How to set environment variable for BACI compiler and interpreter?
You put them on your path, that's how it works. Run which java in your terminal and you'll get the absolute path. Then run echo $PATH and you'll see a colon-delimited set of paths, which will include the directory java is in. Any executable in any of those directories will be runnable just using its name

comment How to set environment variable for BACI compiler and interpreter?
This seems like a duplicate to me; maybe I don't understand. If you add the program folder to your path, you can run bacc and bainterp without needing to provide the full path or switching to the directory to run them as relative paths

@Bratchley Gentoo, although I was building Apache manually anyway

comment Fedora vs. Ubuntu installation
@ThomasStreiff But we're not talking about installing packages; the question is about installing the distro -- it wants to know why installing Ubuntu is harder than installing Fedora. Not installing packages under those distros

comment Fedora vs. Ubuntu installation
I can't figure out what the package format has to do with Fedora's ease of distro installation

comment Replacing multiple lines in sed or awk
@Michael -0 sets the record separator to null, so the whole file will be read at once instead of line-by-line. -p makes it print the result after the substitution. -e has it take the next argument as the expression to run, and s/search/replace/ is that expression

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
