  2. Re: my own sleep program vs the sleep command

    I understand the different behaviour with regard to ctrl+C, but do not understand what you want, why you want your own sleep. Please explain.

    Re: another app i wish i had

    There are tools using pattern recognition, a kind of artificial intelligence technology, that can do it. I have no link right now, but I think suitable FOSS tools can be found via the internet.
  8. Re: Creating a bootable USB stick (for Mac)

    I suggest that you use mkusb

    - not to clone (which is the standard method to make an installer, a live drive in order to install Ubuntu)

    Re: 19.10 Ubuntu live image has a persistent write behaviour by default, why not r/o*

  13. [SOLVED] Re: bash: check if file size is zero before doing some action

    Returning zero means true (or success) while 1 means false (or failure). I think you got it right.

    Please notice that [ something ] is the same as test something
  14. [SOLVED] Re: bash: check if file size is zero before doing some action

    Test with test -s



    test -s filename

    If size=0, the test returns 1, otherwise if size>0 test returns 0.
