comment Automatically start an application with a modifed LD_PRELOAD?
Thank your for this detailed answer! The /etc/default/mydaemon-config way works fine for me. Unortunately currently I can't avoid LD_PRELOAD, maybe in the future.

comment Command substitution: file or command not found
Found the difference between ' and " on linuxcommand.org/wss0060.php. Together with forcefsck's comment I now understand it completely :-)

comment Command substitution: file or command not found
I understand the first part of your reply, but not the one about explaing ${QUERY}, because when one simpley does echo ${QUERY}, therefore without any quotes, it is also expanded. I guess the shell is packaging the parameters into some kind of list and for the query to be one parameter, I need the quotes around it? But then, why do I need double quotes? Why not just single quotes? Thanks :-)

comment Command substitution: file or command not found
Thanks, that works, but I don't really understand way, because echo "${QUERY}" gives the query without the ' and ', so why does it work in the MYROWS line?

comment Comment all lines in a text file?
thanks, a nice way for a script, for now I prefer the vim solution as I need to edit the file anyway and need an editor for that :-)

comment Comment all lines in a text file?
Thank you, that works great, but I don't understand (and according to my testing also don't need) the "gg" at the beginning?

comment Get the chmod numerical value for a file
thanks, selected as answer because it was the first one and also seems to be the simplest one :-) @seg_fault: stat -x YOUR_FILE gives me more than just the mode value.

comment View man page of not installed package?
I am currently on my raspberry pi and the page you linked unfortunately only distinguishes between debian releases, not architecture. e.g. the dump tool on raspberry pi is a different one only supporting ext2, while documentation on the linked page claims also ext4. Still a useful link in most cases!

comment View man page of not installed package?
Thank you very much! Yet didn't have time to test it, but if it works like it claims, then it's the perfect solution for me while working on the shell, especially one should get the correct man page (correct version, distribution...). I still like the other answers for reading on another system using my browser. So also thank you very to the other users that replied! Unfortunately I can only select one answer ):

comment System image of running Debian system?
Thanks, sounds very interesting, did you already tset this in the past? How do I create a complete image out of these parts, just use a loopkack device? (Yes, want to keep partitioning and so on. Want an image ready to be written to a new SD card / disk without further fiddling)
