Bash (bourne again shell) stuff
The last update of R’s tikzdevice (0.7.0) broke all my manually tuned graphs and now I have way too large margins, symbols and text sizes, etc. Even though this update was actually a ﬁx to the previously broken tikzdevice (it simply needed insane amount of margins compared to the other output devices due to ﬁshy metrics), I had workarounds in each graph which I had to ﬁx now - again - manually.

If you want to update nesono-bin, I would recommend you to use the following command inside the nesono-bin directory (especially if you made some editing):
git pull --rebase
If you encounter conﬂicts, you will need to solve them ﬁrst to continue the rebase, of course.

Today I ﬁxed a problem with a bash-script I was using for quite a while now, which refused to work correctly under Mac OS X 10.5 (maybe other versions as well). The Problem was, that an sed script did not substitute, what it ought to.
