comment Equivalent of $(@D) in NMake (batch) inference rules
btw, I am stuck with NMake for this project, so no need to suggest MSBuild or even GNU make. I can't use these, since this is a wrapped nmake.exe, wrapped by the WDK build process (build.exe). And until we can drop support for certain older versions of Windows, I am stuck with it.

comment Testing file existence in NMake
This should be the accepted answer. It's been used for ages like that in the DDK/WDK build process, where build.exe is a wrapper around an nmake.exe-based build process.

@Simon: it would help this answer to appear at the top if you accepted this one instead of the other one (yes, one can change that).

comment What does :: (double colon) mean in DOS batch files?
@Aacini: I did read it and it prompted me to comment. And out of your five alternatives all require more movement of my fingers than :: and even worse, three out of the five use more than two characters. Now while that's a logical explanation, I can't help with "reasonable" or "acceptable", because these are entirely subjective. But out of those alternatives :// would be the most acceptable to me, if I didn't also have the option to use ::.

comment Pull out the [Persian] rug from under the feet of this tag
@SevaAlekseyev: well, I wouldn't, because simply put a non-native speaker would not be qualified to decide such a case either way. Not sure what you mean by misplaced "ё", since it is still in use despite often ending up written as "е" instead. Or do you mean using a Latin e with diaresis instead of the Cyrillic letter "ё"? It's not like "ѣ" which indeed fell out of use in Russian, though ... so not sure what you mean by "misplaced" here.

comment Pull out the [Persian] rug from under the feet of this tag
The five-tags-per-question limit takes care of reining in the use of tags. Language tags have merit, even if they are vastly outnumbered by the use of other tags. Are we running out of storage space or something? Fair enough, join farsi and persian as alias, but that should be it.

But would you trust a non-native speaker to make that judgment whether or not a question is generic? Because a question can certainly seem generic to someone unaware of certain subtleties.

comment Phase out [Farsi]
One might want to add that generally non-native speakers can hardly be trusted to make the decision whether the language tag is justified or not, given the quoted examples.

comment How to find the defect in this userscript for StackExchange sites?
Depends which way around it's modified. I think when the intent is to hide it unconditionally, the assignment of the full style as display:none is perfectly fine.

comment how to be a super user to run linux commands in python script?
@sanyesh: read man sudoers, assuming your Python script can resides in a standard location and a given group of users needs to use it, you can "whitelist" the commands that require super user privileges inside the sudoers file and use NOPASSWD, so such a script could even be run unattended.

comment how to be a super user to run linux commands in python script?
... unless you have "whitelisted" the particular executed command inside the sudoers file for the particular sudoer and used NOPASSWD. Yes, you can have very fine-grained sudoers. The man page really helps in this case.
