comment How to convert a file format from tar.gz to tar.bz2 using the windows console?
You tagged your question with python. Did you specifically want to know how to do the above in a Python script?

comment Running PyCharm remotely using a local PyCharm?
I’m not sure what you mean by “run in PyCharm”. PyCharm is an IDE, not an interpreter. Yes, you can use PyCharm’s deployment functionality to execute your code on a remote interpreter; what more do you need?

comment How do I remove the current directory (“.”) from my PATH?
In retrospect, that definitely won’t work in bash since it depends on the fact that zsh automatically ties the $PATH environment variable to the $path array.

comment How do I remove the current directory (“.”) from my PATH?
For the record, this is true in zsh as well. I don’t know whether this behaviour is merely “traditional”, or whether there’s a good reason for it. At any rate, I define this shell function to clean out all non-existing or blank directories from a PATH-like variable, and then call it on such variables at the end of my shell initialisation: pathclean() {for p in $@; eval "$p=(\$^$p(-/N))"}. Not sure if that’d work verbatim in Bash, but you’re welcome to try…

comment How do I remove the current directory (“.”) from my PATH?
@FrankThomas, if I remember correctly (It’s been years!) that’s true on Windows, going all the way back to MS-DOS. It’s never been true on any UNIX-like operating system.

revised In Mac OS X Finder's column view, how do you show all columns, up to the list of volumes?
Add note that this information remains valid up to current version of the OS.

@echristopherson You’re right, and I should probably edit the post to reflect that, in such a way that people can tell at first glance that it’s still valid. Thanks.

comment How can I make the Sign Column show up all the time even if no Signs have been added to it?
While working on something else I recently poked around inside the GitGutter source, and I noticed that setting this variable forces the display of the sign column in exactly the same way as the accepted answer to this question — by setting a dummy sign.

comment bulleted lists for plain-text documents in Vim
@languitar I get the idea we’re pushing edge cases. What I’ve done since posting that comment is to separate out Vim configuration common to all text formats and put that in one file, and ditto for config that applies only to editing code (irrespective of language). These files are loaded based on the file type. Hence, I now set things like formatlistpat only for editing text or text-like formats.
