The sysinternal pendmoves tool is an easy way to do this from a command prompt too.

comment How to get the OpenSSL version in a Tomcat 6 installation
OpenSSL is not part of Tomcat, but the OpenSSL library is included in the Tomcat 6 windows binary packages available from apache.org. The library code is integrated into a Tomcat dll, there is no openssl.exe included.

comment How to find the matching records from 2 files in unix
The (rather grandiose) term is "autovivification", also present though in different ways in perl.

Don't forget Ralf Brown's PCICFG, it's about as close to lspci as you can get.

comment How to know which /proc file is used to set the backlight?
Back when /proc/ was the odd-sock drawer it was possible with /proc/acpi/video/$DEVICE/brightness, that's deprecated since 2.6.23 or thereabouts.

comment Human-readable dump of gpg public key
This debug flag is for MPI (bignum) debugging (DBG_MPI), it works as indicated in GPG 1.2/1.4, but it's not properly supported in GPG 2.0.x (it's commented out in g10/parse-packet.c) with a "FIXME" beside it... @grawity thanks for the tip on pgpdump, looks useful.
