comment How to translate error number to 'errno' constant?
For what it's worth, $! also stringifies to its strerror() representation, so this works as well: perl -E 'say $!=shift' 13

comment How to compact large directories
I think those are rather soft requirements, as the GNU docs for dirent caution that seekdir/telldir may not be reliable. The point about e2fsck is well taken. +1

comment pcap stream rotation and pruning
Thanks, Bill. For posterity, can you be more specific, say, assuming an input of "tcpdump ... -w -" ? At first blush, grok (the utility) is a web interface, and its cousin bag has an incomplete man page that leaves me guessing how this might address my needs.

comment Automatically setting proxy and default printer upon OpenVPN connect
Thanks, Ryan. I didn't mean push out a DHCP option, I meant, can I configure the client stack to recognize that it's plugged back in to a familiar network and apply arbitrary settings peculiar to that networks. In any case, however, you've got the bounty!
