comment How to customize drag-n-drop-to-Terminal path escaping results?
@IronCraftMan this is interesting. In order to test out the idea, I fired up iTerm and found that it does indeed perform escaping as per the terminal app itself. For example, in my Terminal, something happened and it no longer escapes dropped in items; it simply gives an unquoted path, but in iTerm, it still escapes the path with the backslash method. I'm not seeing how or why it would have changed behavior for me in Terminal, but seeing this with iTerm clearly indicates that it must be a function of the app vs the inbound drop lib...

So @klanomath, you understand that when you drag something from Finder or a titlebar, into terminal then the file and its accompanying path are escaped traditionally with backslashes, right? This behavior can be changed to give no escaping or apparently other escape sequences as well. I would like to understand how these options are set in OS X, which I assume can be issued as a shell command as noted above.

I'm looking for the general functionality that will work across all apps so that, for example, I can drag a document from TextMate's titlebar and have the escaping a certain way upon drop into Terminal.

So the follow up to this is how to change escaping to use another format, such as quotations ("/my path has spaces" vs /my\ path\ has\ spaces)? See: apple.stackexchange.com/questions/218361/…

comment How to use multiple pasteboards in OS X?
Well the interesting thing is that everything seems to work great on 10.11, except being able to copy into ancillary pasteboards aside from Main... No problems otherwise with the app.

comment How to compare files for an entire drive from a before and after (or changes during) state?
Well, yeah, fs_usage is a little more verbose and lacks some easy realtime filtering since you have to grep the crap out of it, but it could be workable.

Well I would prefer 10.11 or 10.10. I am specifically working on 10.11 at the moment.
