comment How to convert UTF-8 txt files to all uppercase in bash?
For what its worth, I'm working with Czech letters (and the example you used is actually Slovak), where all uppercase letters are clearly defined, but locale set will probably be C and not Czech so that's a problem. Perl is already used in this toolchain, so adding another use might not be too bad. Thanks for the detailed explanation, btw!

@tendon Added real data; notably, there are a few cases where there's more than 5 dashes preceding.

@terdon Actually, the fact that it's html is irrelevant, it might as well be random words, I just have another script that accepts data in the given form. The example I have given is solid.

comment Choppy animations in desktop using fglrx driver in openSUSE 11.4
Where did you install fglrx from? I followed this guide and it worked like a charm. That repository also gets updates.

comment Why are libraries shipped separately instead of bundled with every program?
This was an interesting read, but it talks more about the implementation details and various Python specifics than the general philosophy.

In the end, this is perhaps the most important point. I agree with the other answers as well, but I had to pick just one. :)
