comment Extracting any Flash/Actionscript code from a .SCR (Windows screensaver) file
you need to be more specific. .scr are .dll files and in that sense they are closely related to .exe files. If it's embedded Flash you could (assuming it's uncompressed) either start by checking the resource section, possible overlays and failing all that the two file signatures used for Flash at the time: FWS and CWS.

comment What is the meaning of *(_DWORD *)
For starters this is C pseudo code - not disassembly as the tag suggests - and if you used IDA you likely used the Hex-Rays decompiler plugin. So thinking this through: you spend several thousand dollars or euros for something of which you seem to know little? It may solve half of your problems if you pick up a C book below a hundred dollars and learn to understand the target language of the decompiler plugin.

Uhm ... "means, in C code"? Some how implying that it's not already C ... which it is ...?!

@ott--: how to find that out? swapinfo? I am using a range of FreeBSD versions from 6 through 10.

comment Dependency hell: Why not create portable applications
@mikeserv: I know, I have been using musl-libc at the company for quite some time now. But before that, all alternatives (possible exception bionic) were LGPL or GPL only.

comment Dependency hell: Why not create portable applications
When was the last time you tried to build software to run on older Linux distros without building on the older Linux distros, but instead trying to link to the older glibc and so on? The ABI allows to a limited extent (and when it works) older programs to run on newer systems, but the other way around things get really messy. Side-note: Windows, i.e. a live CD, requires ~200 MB. And that's a relatively modern Windows 7 or 8. You're talking about the bloat that comes installed by default.

comment Dependency hell: Why not create portable applications
@null_pointer: problem is that "Free Software" (as per RMS) is not the same as other definitions of freedom. The BSDs overall don't have the traction of Linux. And Linux, along with its stock C runtime glibc (and derivatives) is provided under a license that makes static linking a legal minefield. When it actually works. Newer versions of glibc will cause warnings when linking statically ... due to dependencies you'd not necessarily consider core functionality of a libc.

comment Dependency hell: Why not create portable applications
@garethTheRed: which Linux are you using? Noticed glibc hell, yet? Honestly, I always thought that DLL hell was pretty harmless compared to the nasty stuff I am encountering (as developer and admin) with glibc. Not at last because of licensing and mixing licenses. Ermine/Statifier promise solutions, but those create rather more problems when it comes to licensing.

comment Is there an easy way to "restart" a tmux pane?
I upvoted your answer, because it adds value. But here's why the escape characters are not necessarily a good idea: using an ssh session in order to connect to a tmux session which has open ssh connections. Then you suddenly need to think about how to send the escape character beyond first ssh connection to reach the inner one(s). And btw, I usually run ssh from a shell.
