Diereses prevent diphthongs; support diacritics awareness

--

Hi. My name is Daniel.

I'm mostly active on Ask Different, where I'm now a moderator◆, but I sometimes visit some other Stack Exchange sites (more to read than anything else).

I first got into computers in 1982, and learned to program on an Apple //+. Switched to Mac in 2003. I'm not a computer pro; it's just a hobby. I hope any of my questions or answers are helpful.

Except that it is built into OS X through Automator Services, @AdamFlott, it's just that the answer you accepted doesn't use that method.

Python! Wow, I hadn't thought of that. I'm eager to try this out. If I s/Left/Right/g, will it right click?

comment How to make this kind of global hotkey?
By command, do you mean a Unix-style command-line command?Do you want this command to run in a new Terminal window, in the frontmost existing Terminal window, or to run but not in a window at all? It looks like your question is the same as the one identified above as a duplicate, but if you are asking something else, edit to show the differences and we can reopen this.

Welcome to Ask Different! Some questions are more advanced than others, and that's okay; you don't need to apologize. If you have a question about Apple hardware, Apple software, other Apple products or services, third-party hardware and software for Apple products, and it is not about topics prohibited in the FAQ then you're in the right place to ask your question! So if your question is on-topic, it's welcome here, even if you are a 13-year-old (but no younger, per the terms of service).

But sometimes the APIs end up calling commands you can access from Terminal. I've read reports (nothing I care to replicate on my own computer, thank you very much) that if /sbin/shutdown is damaged or deleted, the Shutdown command in the Apple menu ceases to work.

comment Is there a native/cocoa REST client for Mac OS X?
curl ships as part of Mac OS X. It's as native as it gets. It's not a GUI app, but it is built for (indeed, as a part of) Mac OS X, and not running through emulation or as a port from some other platform.
