linux command xargs: maximum size of the arguments passed by it?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
It seems that xargs doesn't pass all the arguments at once, in says in the manual that xargs executes the command (default is /bin/echo) one or more times, I heard that the reason for this is that xargs chops the passed in arguments into groups and pass them to the command group by group. If this is correct, anyone knows how this group size is determined? Thanks
command line font size
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 18, 2004
i am just wondering. you know when you are running in gnome/kde/whatever and you hit ctrl-alt-F# to go to a command line screen?
im just wondering if there is anyway to make the font smaller, because right now i get about 30 or so lines on the screen and it is not very practical.
do i need to framebuffer or something like that? (i dont really know what that is, but i heard about it somewhere).
hopefully i am being clear enough, if not let me know an i will clarify.

Windows command for file size only?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: December 12, 2014
Is there a Windows command that will output the size in bytes of a specified file like this?
I know that the dir command outputs this information, but it outputs other information also.
I could easily write such a program but I would prefer to use a native Windows command if possible, or only what is available in a fresh install of Windows XP.
