comment Java decompiling to Eclipse then recompiling
1. do you know how to unzip a file? If you are on Windows, you can download 7zip 2. do you know Java? 3. do you know how to create a project in Eclipse? If you answer "no" to (2) and (3), I think you should seek out a very basic introduction to both.

comment In Emacs on my Mac, how can `Compile Command` see PATH set in ~/.bashrc?
Well bash won't normally read your .bashrc and other init files unless you use the login switch (eg,bash -l)

comment incorrect IF formula evaluation
= is for numerical/cell comparison. You need to use EXACT(SELL_INVESTMENT, "YES") instead.

Well, I definitely would not recommend bash, tcsh, or perl as first programming languages.

comment Search which man sections contain a given entry
@patrickvacek, have to create the whatis database first with makewhatis -w (on Cygwin, it is in /usr/sbin).

comment how do you monitor the progress of a command line program?
If you are piping STDIN/STDOUT anyway, why not just pipe them to a file directly? And then use (for example on Linux) tail -f file1 -f file2 -f file 3 to track all 3 files on the same window. There is also a Unix package (supposedly runs on Cygwin as well) called multitail which divides the window up for each log. Or you can write a program that collects and process your logs.

comment iterating bash script for cycle in a file
why don't you just change your java program to accept ARGUMENTS instead! Then you don't have to do this hack! In your script, just write out n to a file and the next time you run, you cat the file into a variable, add 1 to the value and write it back to the file. Then run the java program passing in an argument.

comment Excel counta function fixed reach
@Kevin Panko, he means instead of Paste (eg, Ctrl-v), do a right-click to bring up the menu and select "Paste As Special" and select "Value". This will paste the value but not the formula therefore will not update if you make changes to cells IX7:JB7. If that's not what you want, there is no easy way besides changing your formula in cell IW7 to =10-COUNTA($IX7:$JB7)*2. Then you can copy and paste freely.

comment all USB “randomly” disconnect and reconnect
I was thinking it was a power problem as well. Especially if USB 2.0.

comment Automatically rename worksheet based on filename
@nixda because you can create in memory or open a valid Excel workbook even if it does not have the appropriate extension.

comment Automatically rename worksheet based on filename
I would test if Count > 0. If not, then use ThisWorkbook.Name.

comment Diff to actually totally ignore whitespace
How the heck in any programming language is "barspaz" the same as "bar spaz"? Very strange.
