comment Enforcing single document copy in iOS
Is this a question asked on behalf of end users or developers? The question itself is unclear, and if it's aimed at developers, it's off-topic here.

comment How Do I Use 'cp' to Overwrite Files?
If you don't have permission to overwrite the target file, this will fail. If you really want to overwrite a target file, you can use sudo at the beginning of the command. But use with caution!

Cool. I just bought the current version on the Mac App store. This looks really promising.

comment Is it possible to use US English keyboard layout with dead keys in Mavericks similar to those from Windows and Linux?
Great. I couldn't tell if you had a real question or if you were ranting that Apple wasn't doing dead keys "right" according to your definition of dead keys. Now I see you're actually looking for something in particular, and not just saying "they're doing it wrong." +1

Where do you get your definition of what dead keys "really" are?

comment What are some good iPad apps for students?
Questions suitable for this site have concrete answers. "What app do you recommend to solve this particular problem?" is a single question with possible concrete answers. "What are some good apps for productivity?" is a great lead into a conversation, but not a concrete question for this site. The fact that your description of what you are looking for ends in "etc." and doesn't have a closed form is a good indicator that you are asking too broad a question. Your last comment is telling: this is supposed to be a question, not the start of a thread. That's why it's closed.

I haven't had any luck scripting Preview. I hope you find someone with a better answer; I'd look forward to reading it.

comment Applescript dictionary for Preview
It appears that Preview.app does not have a scripting dictionary and is thus not scriptable.

Answers on Ask Different need to be more than just a link. It's okay to include a link, but please summarize or excerpt it in the answer. The idea is to make the answer stand alone.

comment Who installed this Emacs?
You want /usr/bin/emacs to invoke the default version. You can safely install your own programs in /usr/local/bin. If you want your own programs to preempt the system versions, make sure /usr/local/bin is earlier in your path than /usr/bin and /bin, but be warned that this creates a security hole if someone with admin privileges on your system installs a /usr/local/bin version of some other program with unexpected results.
