comment Text editor that allows for coloring of arbitrary text (and exporting thereof)?
Thanks for that, @Marco - haven't used vim much, as I find it a bit difficult (am a nano user in the terminal myself), but it's definitely worth a try, now that I have a reference to TOhtml; cheers!

comment Packaging a directory and its contents as a diff patch?
Many thanks @StephenKitt - it works nicely, except my diff doesn't accept capital -R as argument, only miniscule -r; cheers!

comment grep two conditions, one negated, without a pipeline?
Many thanks @mikeserv and the comments - this works, just note that in my example, the entire line is highlighted, as this answer also warns about. Cheers!

comment What is the correct syntax to add CFLAGS and LDFLAGS to “configure”?
Thanks for the "but this may not work with all configure scripts" comment - I just ran into a case, where after several dependencies compiled with CFLAGS, the last dependency crashes when CFLAGS is specifies (and indeed, grep CFLAGS configure returns blank from that configure script).

comment Why is df missing 500MB of available space?
Thanks for that, @jimmij - indeed, sudo tune2fs -l /dev/sda5 | grep '[Bb]lock \(count\|size\)' gives me "Reserved block count: 128017" and "Block size: 4096", and 128017*4/1024 is indeed 500 MB, so this seems to solve the mystery. Cheers!
