Female Linux user, been 'playing' with computers for a long while.

I'm quite sure I don't know everything, and I'm always trying to discover more.

Decent programmer in several languages, can decipher most anything. A background in electronics,repair and nuclear engineering. (Honest!)

I enjoy reading, discovering new things, music and my computers.
(and long walks on the beach, large dogs and chocolate... yeah yeah)

Warped, offbeat sense of humor, been told I have "The Knack", learned it's not fatal though, whew!

For the most part... "I make things work.™"

I really hate telling someone "NO, you can't do that", so I often find some offbeat method to accomplish things. Nothing is really impossible, just some things are more difficult to do than others. It's those 'difficult' things I enjoy. The Challenge!

{Chuckle} Ok, so I'm easily amused, but I do find it interesting with the 'badges'. Well done, it's like those nasty farm games on those toy sites, but more entertaining because I learn while earning them. Yaay!

comment gcc --as-needed linker flag not working
I'd look at your linker and its default options/setup/configuration. gcc is really a controller which runs compiler (cc) and linker (ld) in order. It passes -W options to the linker. You might try compiling with gcc, but then linking by hand to test this, suggest 'ld --trace --verbose --as-needed -lncurses 1.o -o 1' (after 'gcc 1.c -o 1.o') Placement of '-lncurses' in cmdline MAY affect success, see ld man pages on -l option and location in line effects.

comment “Reset” colors of terminal after ssh exit/logout
Uh, no. Terminal settings are not based on what you're doing in the terminal. They (anthromorphizing!) don't care if you're local, remote, working in Swahili or anything. It's a simple state machine. Since you used a command to change it to something... you have to use a command to change it to something else. The .bash_logout solution is the best way, unless you want to write an alias/function to wrap your ssh commands. Blech. Easier, make your settings (whatever they are) part of your PS1 prompt output. When you log into a machine, it'll change, log out, old prompt will reinstate.

comment How good is PDF password protection?
{Grin} I'm at a loss to think of a password that is NOT BFA vulnerable. How do you set the password then? Not saying it has to be something typeable... easy enough to use a program to insert password made up of randomized bytes. (UTF-8 is just a longer string of bytes.. it's all ones & zeros at the end) My philosophy... if it's on the computer, it can be broken... given enough time. Encryption is only really useful to slow the 'bad-guy' down enough so that the information gained is not useful by the time it's broken.

Klingon has worked well for me, very few collisions with English words. Elvish works well too. (Especially since one of our setups at work reject ANY password with ANY English Dictionary word. Do you know how hard it is to make up passwords that work?)

comment How to append a CR to end of all .txt files in a directory
just echo >> "$f" would work... but OP's use of 'copy' infers OP is on a windows box. Alas. You'd have to create a file containing a CR, then y'know... it's just painful to do it on a Windows box. Wait! There's Quickbasic scripts in MS Word! To the BatMobile!! (Ain't gonna do it!) Even using a Linux LiveCD would be faster.
