HTML / XML / RSS link checker – Visual Studio Marketplace

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/10/04

On my list of Visual Studio Code extensions to try (after I change the shortcuts, as direct Alt shortcuts are not a good idea, luckily those are configurable)

[Wayback/Archive.is] HTML / XML / RSS link checker – Visual Studio Marketplace (partly paraphrased):

VSCode extension that checks for broken links in an HTML, XML, RSS, PHP, or Markdown file.

Checks currently open file:

  • for broken links in anchor-href, link-href, img-src, and script-src tags in currently-open HTML or PHP file
  • both clearnet and onion (Tor) links
  • for badly-formatted mailto links, and duplicate local anchors (anchor-name, anchor-id)
  • for working HTTPS equivalents of HTTP links

Optionally checks for invalid characters and common mistakes (missing tag content, empty attribute value, more).

Also checks for errors in a small subset of semantic HTML tags (in HTML and PHP files): checks that each page has header, main, footer; checks that each heading is inside a section, article, or aside; checks that each section/article/aside has exactly one heading in it; checks that heading values are nested properly.

To see/change settings for this extension, open Settings (Ctrl+,) / Extensions / “HTML / XML / RSS link checker”.

To change the key-combinations for this extension, open File / Preferences / Keyboard Shortcuts and search for Alt+H or Alt+T or Alt+M or Alt+L.

Jelmer Visser on Twitter: “Doelwit van een flamewar op Twitter? Dat is vervelend. Zo doorsta je de storm. … 1/*”

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/10/02

Good thread: [Archive.is] Jelmer Visser on Twitter: “Doelwit van een flamewar op Twitter? Dat is vervelend. Zo doorsta je de storm. 1. Blijf kalm, reageer nergens op 2. Traceer de ergste aanjagers, herkenbaar aan quotetweets met meeste likes 3. Zoek naar je eigen naam met een sokpop voor screenshots van geblokte accounts 1/*”

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.

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):
