I remember that there was a rare problem of a
<flag getting unintentionally reset> which disabled
some of the functions of Partitions.Tool .
I made a note of it when I was still using N-O, but now
with LEO, lixux does all the disk management.
Not only do I need the info, but it's infuriating me that I
can't recover my important 'note' that I made years ago.
The info was missing from the original docos, since it's a

I've long claimed that 'search is the most important facility of
computing'. That's why google could control the world.
When I was using N-O, I modified/extended Find.Mod to
search a set of files for those which contain all of several
strings. The linux version is slicker and YOU need this facilty to
re-find that important file that you saved before you went to
Moscow 7 weeks ago, and which mentioned "efault", "eoing",
Here's the linux call, to: `Fnd3StrngsA 50 efault eoing accident`
find . -type f -ctime -$1 -print0 | \ <-- list all file in this-dir-tree < 50 days old
xargs -0 grep -l $2 | tr "\n" "\0" | \ <-- which contain string:$2
xargs -0 grep -l $3 | tr "\n" "\0" | \
xargs -0 grep -l $4 <--- and which contain string:$4
This concatenative programming style: A -> B -> C ...N
is very cost-effective, and it would be interesting to adapt
Wirthian languages towards it.
The ecomony of mental effort comes from the fact that each stage
is isolated. I.e. maximum decoupling.
