comment Resume transfer of a single file by rsync
Good point about the use of the faster cp by default, and rsync to "repair" a broken cp process! Neat :)

comment How can I add a comment for each flag, on separate lines, in a bash script?
I have a quite specific use case here, where I want to show how a command is built up (I maybe have to make a video of this :) ): As you select things in a wizard, the "$[var]" part gets replaced. I don't have much screen estate for the command, so making it double as high, by putting the list above, will be too much. I also find it very helpful, when you have that many command line options, to have the comment absolutely adjacent to where it is set.

Works too, although slightly harder to read. Thanks for the tip though!

comment Cut part from video file from start position to end position with FFmpeg
On ubuntu 12:10, -c:v and -c:a didn't work. I had to use "-acodec copy and -vcodec copy" instead.
