🐌. Native speaker of American English. Linux user. Familiar with several programming languages in the procedural, OO, and functional paradigms.

Link rot is evil. Archive everything. The keyboard is king. Correctness over performance. Canonicalize, normalize, deduplicate. Don't repeat yourself. UTF-8 > UTF-16. Use static typing: good for tooling. Re-use; don't re-invent. Correctness, then clarity, then concision and elegance. Play devil's advocate. First understand opponents' positions.

comment What key does the symbol “⇧” represent?
I think Sublime Text was originally for the Mac, so they're using Apple's notation.

revised Is there an image viewer that takes images on STDIN?
Clearly this is asking about Unix/Linux.

It looks like eog is looking up information on the file descriptor (which succeeds in the special case that it was redirected directly from a file), whereas normal Unix programs will just take the input regardless of where it comes from. So eog won't work for general stdin. Another program that works is gwenview /dev/stdin (the KDE image viewer).
