comment How can I view results of my cron jobs?
This is correct. One can use mail command to read messages from the command line. Or look at /var/spool/mail. But if you have installed postfix or other mailer than standard sendmail, another way to read messages is needed.

In my case I have scanned PDFs so not actually text but I see what you mean.. still @frabjous answer is easier.

comment how to print a black/grayscale pdf in some chosen color
I found my question has been answered in another question but the other question was not generic enough to find so leaving my question to possibly catch searches: superuser.com/a/202978/111432

comment How can I print out a PDF substituting pixels for blue pixels?
Amazing, exactly what I needed. It's creating a terribly big file as output but fixes my issue (original from scanner 962K, colorized 47M). But it works for the purpose of printing. @AlexanderTaubenkorb, thanks, perhaps issue with images is that color is not exactly black but grayscale.

comment How can I print out a PDF substituting pixels for blue pixels?
I had similar desire (change colors) but for aesthetic reasons. Doing it with gimp didn't yield nice results (I lost text sharpness), maybe because of my inability to do it right. In any case it's cumbersome if you want to print multiple pages.

@datasmid, that's a good point to check - that IP configuration is not forcing IP address that's interfering with router, DNS server or something.

I'm assuming files with same name are the same. Highly unlikely to be different in this case. Or if they are, then they are older and not needed. I just finished a script to do the comparoson. Now going to see how much I really found.

I didn't notice that. But I don't end up with paths I need to copy over though, only names. This is something. Still I'm crafting a script to do what I need in ruby.

this doesn't cover the case where same file has different PATH. I could have user diff -r if I didn't care.

Looks like a windows cmd command. I've put the linux tag on the question. Thanks for the answer but doesn't help me.
