Re: C or Bash?

I did mean a standard user. As a standard user, Bash will suffice. Every Linux user will encounter one form of shell scripting or another, sooner or later anyway. C -- although touted as a [one of several] general-purpose programming languages -- is more geared towards developing simple as well as ...

Re: Why does Copy&Paste remove Carriage Return?

1. I don't think copy-paste is the culprit here. Most likely when you saved the copied.txt file, you didn't notice the option to change the line ending from Unix/Linux to Windows. The default option is Unix/Linux. 2.It shouldn't be an issue. You copy-paste the text from Pluma to the website form, an...

Re: Audacity recordings location

Once you save an Audacity project file (.aup), a folder bearing the same name appended with "_data" gets created alongside it. E.g., a project file named "my-one-hit-wonder.aup" will have a folder named "my-one-hit-wonder _data " created in the same location where the project file was saved. The gen...

Yes. However, if you're the recipient of such a PDF file, you'll probably have to clean it up one page at a time.

Re: Cleaning up and shrinking a PDF file

AFAIK, a fine-grained control to shrink a PDF file embedded with scanned text (as opposed to typed text) and images is a manual and potentially laborious process. But in the end, you may end up with a smaller and cleaner PDF file suited to your exact specifications. You can use GIMP to import the PD...
