comment Simultaneously calculate multiple digests (md5, sha256)?
@Lekensteyn: I get a conflict on the package level (ie. aptitude doesn't let me have both of the packages at the same time).

comment Simultaneously calculate multiple digests (md5, sha256)?
Assuming the IO is significantly slower than any of the tools involved, both tools should be slowed down to the same speed because of IO. Therefore, if one tool manages to get few blocks of data more than the other, the other tool would quickly catch up with the computations using the data in the disk cache. That's theory, I'd love to see some experimental results proving it…

Unfortunately, moreutils conflicts with GNU parallel on my Debian system… though, it's good to know there's such a tool.

Unless the question specifically asks about bash, this is a valid answer. Don't remove it.

comment scp between two servers not in the same network
You'll get a nice progress bar if the source machine has pv installed and you replace the first cat with it.

comment I deleted /bin/rm. How do I recover it?
@Damon: coreutils provide a extended version of the basic commands compared to busybox, so while busybox might be enough to match SUSv3 requirements, coreutils are more featureful; for example busybox has limited i18n support.

comment How do I play an HTTP music stream over SSH?
Does the http_proxy feature actually work with SOCKS proxies too? The feature is undocumented in my man page, and various sites on the web prefer the tsocks approach.

comment How do I play an HTTP music stream over SSH?
Note that this will not work if the HTTP server is using virtual domains (or in other words, requires a proper domain name sent by the client as an HTTP header). To solve this problem, you can for example temporarily add a rule to your hosts file that will make mplayer think that the target domain is hosted at local machine.

comment How do I play an HTTP music stream over SSH?
Note that the question doesn't mention any particular protocol over which music is streamed. There are other protocols over which music can be streamed, for example RTP and MMS. Both can be played by mplayer, but not downloaded by wget.

comment Why does Linux have a C compiler by default?
Also, as far as I remember, POSIX requires a working C compiler to be available in a POSIX-compliant system. So, if a distribution wants to be as close as possible to POSIX, it needs a C compiler.

comment Append huge files to each other without copying them
Why do you need to have a single physical file that is so large? I'm asking because maybe you can avoid concatenating—which, as current answers show, is pretty bothersome.

comment Why do Unix-heads say “minus”?
This might be regional thing. In Polish, we often call it “minus” because the polish word for “dash” is more difficult to pronounce, same for “hyphen”. So when we switch to English, we keep thinking of the character as “minus” character more than a “dash” character…

comment Effectivity of shred on different file systems
Note that if you are using an SSD drive, it is impossible to overwrite specific physical sectors on it. shred has no value there regardless of filesystem used.
