Is this grep regexp correct for extracting absolute file paths? ^(\/.*)
With some basic testing it should be correct for extracting absolute paths.
Don't know if it's the best regexp for this.

Is there any tool (like tail -f) to monitor a file descriptor?

@Ungeheuer An absolute pathname is a pathname that starts with a /. A pathname can contain any character apart from the nul character (since it's a string terminator in the C language). So, a regular expression that matches an absolute path should only need to match a / in front of a string, i.e. ^/ (there is no need to add .* after taht).
The issue with pathnames, though, is that they also may contain newlines. Regular expressions are generally used for matching string in lines of text. Lines are delimited from each other using newlines.
This means that an absolute pathname containing one newline would probably be detected as an absolute pathname followed by (possibly) a relative pathname, if the regular expression works line by line.
 
/foo
/bar
Could be even worse!

"answered 2 mins ago ilkkachu 65.5k" -- is this new? showing the user's rep in the question list, that is.
 
@ilkkachu It doesn't strike me as being new, no. But I'm not certain.

"[mouse] trackpad": 31 search results. /me wonders whether it's worth posting a Meta, about adding a "trackpad" tag as a synonym of the "touchpad" tag. I can't just vote on a tag synonym, as I don't have any points in [touchpad].
 
@sourcejedi might be a minor distinction, based solely on the existence of amazon.com/Apple-Compatible-MC380LL-Certified-Refurbished/dp/…; thought the difference might not matter
ironically categorized under "touch pads"
 
@JeffSchaller the built-in ones are also described as trackpads support.apple.com/en-gb/HT204895
The Wikipedia article is "Touchpad / A touchpad or trackpad is ..."
 
so it may not matter
have you seen people use [trackpad] when we have the [touchpad] tag?
 
No, the [trackpad] tag does not exist.
But maybe people avoid creating it and therefore use [mouse] instead
 
sounds reasonable, as [touchpad] is probably more apt than [mouse]
I don't see any proposed synonyms in the queue

What's our stance on old Windows questions?

By climate warming, I guess I meant climate change and global warming. :)
Climate change is one of the very serious problems that human has to do something about immediately.
Sadly, many climate denials (ignorant, deliberate, or both) bury the problem very deep
I don't have a car, don't run air conditioner, and probably only consume less than a quarter of the energy by an average person, so I feel less guilty
Living in a minimalism life style will help dealing with climate change, I guess.
 
@Fabby It's on topic since an answer can be written with a Unix or Linux explanation (as Gilles did). The actual solution is a Windows solution, but Gilles explains what could possibly be done from Linux.

Or actually, inability to afford anything, will help
 
If it was a brand new question, it would probably be fairly quickly closed as off-topic.
The site's standards change with the set of users manning the review queues.
