comment What does the underscore motion do in vim?
@TylerDurden The difference is 1 (line), as is the difference between [count] - 1 and [count] for any value of [count]. As Ingo mentioned, it would do you some good to read vim's built-in help which is quite clear.

Double-check for typos. What is PROCESS_NAME set to when you run the command?

comment How to Determine the IP Address of who logged into Root?
@Patrick improvement over what? Having separate user accounts for separate people is almost certainly an improvement over having several people share a single root account.

comment Count how many elements in the nth column in a whole file
You may want to update your answer based on comments to the original question. Evidently OP means to count the commas and does not mean length($2) literally.

comment Count how many elements in the nth column in a whole file
Can you clarify what you mean by length($2)? Do you mean "number of characters" (like awk does) excluding commas, or do you mean number of fields, like "number of commas + 1"? For example, your "length($2)" for 12,13 is 2 or 4?

comment Is there a way to tell sudo to set my username as owner for the files created instead of root?
sudo cat /etc/foo.txt > ~/foo.txt. Files tend to be only readable by root for a reason, so remember to keep that reason in mind when making copies readable by non-root users.

Interactive applications are not the same as non-interactive. The Ctrl-C behavior you are used to is the default for non-interactive ones. The interactive ones may override the behavior of Ctrl-C for their own purposes.

comment How can I create a multi-boot USB using livecd-tools?
@QuestionOverflow Since it sounds like a separate issue it is better to have it in separate question I think. Perhaps the question here is how to mix efi and non-efi isos on the same USB. It is probably easier to go non-EFI for the entire USB drive.
