comment How to learn what `gparted`, `partitionmanager`… libcalls or `fdisk`, `parted`… commands are wrapping?
I actually know gparted requires and uses libparted, ldd is not completely necessary for knowing this because it is stated by the description of the gparted package and because the package depends on libparted (libparted0debian1 actually for Debian 7 wheezy). I edited the question to state more precisely I want to see actual calls to the functions of the library, not just know which library it depends on. I just thought I'ld break less partitions if I use the parted documentation not only by itself but together actual libparted examples coming from a gparted verbose mode.

comment Thunderbird: show current column while composing a message
I (actually not always) compose using Kate precisely to have user control of the current column. Actually Kate shows this number in kind of a status bar. Do you know whether similar functionality is available in Thunderbird? An add-ons lookup didn't throw anything interesting. I saw nothing related in 'Preferences'.

comment How to compare databases?
I was thinking of using only pg_dump... Yeah but having dirtrees support in the comparison tool, is OK dumping the tables' contents to single files using psql. But I will try not to use that approach, so that the binary checksum will be a script option, it will be possible to have a single file, and that single file would be restorable whenever binary columns would not have been checksummed. I'm trying to develop something asap...

comment How to compare databases?
I don't know a way of sorting the rows other than with an external script that performed the row sort for each table (lines between lines matching "^COPY" and "^\\.") and copied verbatim all the remaining information in a pg_dump text dump.

comment How to compare databases?
I like it and at some point it's sure I'll give a try. However I'm not sure the schema will be comparable (they are mutant schemas of hundreds of tables and constraints), but I like very much the idea of passing an ORDER BY or something to the dump instruction. It would be needed also an additional step to abbreviate binary/base64/blob columns, but there should be alternatives for coding that, e.g. awk, sed, Python.

comment How to compare databases?
Okay, but maybe for pg_dump maintainer adding an option for canonical output would be no big deal. If meld is OK, and it is, isn't it the natural approach trying to leverage it?

comment Visual editor for graphviz DOT files
Gephi currently doesn’t provide a complete support of the DOT format. Subgraphs are not supported, nor custom attributes or size. Only labels and colors are imported if present. Directed and undirected graphs are supported. - https://gephi.github.io/users/supported-graph-formats/graphviz-dot-format/
