comment How does NIC driver handle flow control?
What's the data rate of your source? Unless it's very high or your receiver is relatively slow by today's standards, the host OS shouldn't have a requirement to send PAUSE frames. A modern desktop machine can choke down well over a gigabit without heroic measures.

comment OSX: Terminal Zip command not working
"My Command wrong" is not a symptom, it's just a complaint. What specifically is zip doing that you don't like?

comment Bash: if [ tar = error ]
@Jannyeis: I'm not sure what you mean. If you run tar inside $() like in your original code, you are capturing its output. So, comparing that output to 0 is also not likely to do what you want. You're interested in the exit status code here, not the text output of the program.

comment How does Red Hat Enterprise Linux distinguish between EST and EDT
If you have the source code to this app, find the code where it is doing its time conversions. There may be a bug. (grep the source for things like time(, localtime(, and localtime_r(. Be careful with the open parenthesis; that's special in regexes, so you might have to escape it, depending on the RE flavor you're using.)

comment How does gcc find the following header file?
@user912083132: That's the $TARGET part I mentioned in my answer and comment. It's the output of config.guess when GCC was compiled, or which was given to its configure script with the --target flag. The real question is, how does that path get assembled? Does it just go back through the same list, appending $TARGET to each, after failing to find the header the first time through?

comment Fastest way to type greek letters like α or β?
Get a Mac. :) You can add arbitrary language soft keyboards, or temporarily switch to a Greek keyboard. When overlaying a Greek keyboard on an English one, the characters are mapped naturally, so that alpha is over A, beta is over B, etc. Alternately, a recent version of the OS added the Ctrl-⌘-Space shortcut, which pulls up something kinda like Windows Character Map, but better: you can search for characters by English description, it automatically remembers recent characters, you can pick them with arrow keys...
