Note (typography) – Wikipedia; Footnote – PrintWiki

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/09/30

For my reference:

Typographical devices such as the asterisk (*) or dagger (†) may also be used to point to notes; the traditional order of these symbols in English is *, †, ‡, §, ‖, ¶.[1] Other symbols, including the #, Δ, ◊, ↓, and ☞, have also been used.[2][3]

Source: Note (typography) – Wikipedia

The most common sequence of footnote reference marks is:

  1. asterisk (*),
  2. dagger (†),
  3. double dagger (††),
  4. paragraph symbol (¶),
  5. section mark (§),
  6. parallel rules (||),
  7. number sign (#).

If more are required, they can be doubled up:

  • double asterisks (**),
  • double single daggers (††),
  • double double daggers (††††),
  • etc.

However, when many footnotes are used, it is more practical to use consecutive numbers to identify each footnote.

Git (even recent versions) hanging after “Resolving deltas: 100%”

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/09/29

If you ever come across git hanging after completing “Resolving deltas: 100%“, then remember this can still happen with recent git versions; the below output was with git version 2.24.1.windows.2.

C:\bin>git clone https://wiert@gitlab.com/wiert.me/private/Windows/bin.git
Cloning into 'bin'...
remote: Enumerating objects: 74, done.
remote: Counting objects: 100% (74/74), done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (54/54), done.
remote: Total 1063 (delta 30), reused 39 (delta 15)
Receiving objects: 100% (1063/1063), 26.74 MiB | 516.00 KiB/s, done.
Resolving deltas: 100% (385/385), done.

or (after pressing Ctrl-C):

C:\bin>git clone https://wiert@gitlab.com/wiert.me/private/Windows/bin.git
Cloning into 'bin'...
remote: Enumerating objects: 74, done.
remote: Counting objects: 100% (74/74), done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (54/54), done.
remote: Total 1063 (delta 30), reused 39 (delta 15)
Receiving objects: 100% (1063/1063), 26.74 MiB | 516.00 KiB/s, done.
Resolving deltas: 100% (385/385), done.
fatal: index-pack failed

Retry after a while

Sometimes this is as easy as waiting until the remote system comes to its senses. In this case, waiting some 8 hours resolved it:

C:\bin>git clone https://wiert@gitlab.com/wiert.me/private/Windows/bin.git
C:\bin>git clone https://wiert@gitlab.com/wiert.me/private/Windows/bin.git
Cloning into 'bin'...
remote: Enumerating objects: 74, done.
remote: Counting objects: 100% (74/74), done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (54/54), done.
remote: Total 1063 (delta 30), reused 39 (delta 15)
Receiving objects: 100% (1063/1063), 26.74 MiB | 748.00 KiB/s, done.
Resolving deltas: 100% (385/385), done.

In my case this worked, even though GitLab did not show any problems in their status history: [WayBack] GitLab System Status History.

I waited (and succeeded) because of [WayBack] git – How to solve’fatal: index-pack failed’? – Stack Overflow.

LPRng: RESOURCES – PostScript, Epson, HP, Xerox, PPD, etc

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/09/28

When writing Some links on PostScript books and online content, back from the days, I archived [Wayback] Index of /RESOURCES from the site hosting the [Wayback/Archive.is] LPRng Web Page (see also LPRng on Wikipedia):

The LPRng software is an enhanced, extended, and portable implementation of the Berkeley LPR print spooler functionality. While providing the same interface and meeting RFC1179 requirements, the implementation is completely new and provides support for the following features: lightweight (no databases needed) lpr, lpc, and lprm programs; dynamic redirection of print queues; automatic job holding; highly verbose diagnostics; multiple printers serving a single queue; client programs do not need to run SUID root; greatly enhanced security checks; and a greatly improved permission and authorization mechanism.

The source software compiles and runs on a wide variety of UNIX systems, and is compatible with other print spoolers and network printers that use the LPR interface and meet RFC1179 requirements.

Subdirectories (the PPD one goes one level deeper with both files and directories; XEROX just has a subdirectory with one file):
