comment What are the differences between “sh file.sh” and “source file.sh”?
Thanks. Are there any differences besides the generated environment? The only different environment variables I can see are SHLVL and TMPDIR. I can't figure out any reason these variables would affect the script I'm running.

Thanks. In the context of the question, though, I'm still trying to understand what difference could cause my code to crash. Are there any differences besides the environment variables? (as I've now indicated, the shell is the same, bash, in both cases)

comment Count highlighted string length in VIM
g-ctrl-g has no effect in visual mode for me. v only yields the number of highlighted lines, not characters or words.

comment Full screen and zoom to page width in Preview or Skim on Mac
for Skim: The "Zoom to fit" option is under the PDF menu, not the View menu as I would have expected. Shortcut key is Command-_ (Apple-_)

comment Unpause application in Mac OS X
@Jawa - open iterm if you have it, or X11, to get at the terminal some other way. Alternatively, ssh in from another machine. But these are workarounds, I'd love a better solution
