comment Rename files and extensions in one command in Mac OS X
rename is not installed on MacOS X 10.6.2 by default, either. It is a script I copied from the original Camel book - it was dropped (for lack of space) in later editions. I still use it for exactly such purposes. The only oddball thing to worry about it is the Mac's case-insensitive file system.

comment How to decompress the *.TGZ file without changing the orginal file?
Au contraire (it does not belong on SU): a relevant part of handling open source programs is knowing how to handle compressed tar files - a part of programming.

comment Replace line with only part of the line
Probably safer to use '[^]]*' in place of '.*' in case there are two fields with the double-square brackets around them.

comment Why do I get files like ._foo in my tarball on OS X?
I have GNU tar 1.15.1 by default on MacOS X 10.5.8 (Leopard). The latest version from GNU is 1.22 (March 2009). Downloaded and built: it does not appear to have '--no-xattrs' when built on MacOS X.

comment What constitutes a 'guest' account on Snow Leopard?
OK - it is an 'official' term. That helps a lot - and none of my accounts is a guest account within the meaning of that term.
