comment How to check if a shell is login/interactive/batch
There is yet another question: Are STDIN and/or STDOUT connected to a tty (terminal) or a pipe (file or process)? This is a related but distinct test as described in some of the below comments.

comment SCP fails without error
By screen output, I mean echo "Greetings, Master" or anything else that displays output to the terminal window. Don't put that in your ~/.bashrc --keep it in your ~/.bash_profile script.

comment Determining number of files in a directory without counting them
interesting, but that page starts off with a preposterous case of filenames containing newlines or other odd chars, (which is solved by GNU ls --quoting-style=c and BSD ls -q ) and doesn't address the question of how to count number of files in a subdirectory containing a lot of files.

comment Detecting SSH agent forwarding
The ssh-add is what did the trick for me. I'd been working for months not knowing about that. Then I switched desktops from Unity to LXDE and agent key forwarding stopped working.

comment How can you trim mp3 files using `ffmpeg`?
An update. Later, I stumbled upon the fact that ffmpeg is very picky about the --ss time format, and I was able to most easily trim off the first 9 seconds for instance by specifying -ss 00:00:09 (note that it needs all 3 numbers in hh:mm:ss format) The version I was using may be old...

comment How can you trim mp3 files using `ffmpeg`?
Thanks, awesome: it worked. I ended up using the trim for simplicity. The only downer was sox FAIL formats: can't open output file 'blah.mp3': SoX was compiled without MP3 encoding support --so, re-enter ffmpeg :/
