comment gzip and pipe to output (performance consideration)
@Noob all "streaming" means is that the program alternates between reading and writing. So you start getting output before it's finished consuming input. Most UNIX utilities do this. For example grep writes a matching line immediately after reading it. Those that don't, do it because they can't. For example sort reading from stdin has no way to know that the last line won't be aardvark, so it can't start writing until the input is closed.

comment Junit - testing a different class
+1 -- and bear in mind that the same features that make a class testable with jUnit, also make that class useful when used within an application.

bash -l ? But there are lots of good reasons why you want your login shell to behave differently from other shells.

comment Why can we call super class methods in a subclass constrcutor?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is too basic. The answer is in the early parts of any Java book.

I started writing an answer -- but then I stopped because this is basic stuff, and you would be better off reading a proper Java textbook than trying to pick it up in bits and bobs on the internet.

comment Lead sheets / fake sheets without score
As in the examples in the question - they are bar lines just as in sheet music. In the photo, it shows that "My", "Wears", "Wears", "Lives" are on the first beat of a bar. That the C/C/G/G chords coincide with the start of bars, and the final C is halfway through a bar. Although you need to know the tune to sing it, anyone can strum an accompaniment without having heard the song before.

Thank you for drawing my attention to this. Unfortunately none of the screenshots of Chordastic has bar lines. That is a very important requirement to me.

comment How do you identify a good acoustic guitar?
@supercat that's fine if you spend most of your time in one room, and you're allowed to keep a guitar and amp set up all the time.

Fair enough. I must admit the open B7 wasn't in my repertoire; I always barre it.
