Let me try to be as very clear as I can as to why I reverted back to my original.
"People found it to be useful regardless of your edits."
"I found xdotool on my own, my suggesting it was enough."
"I provided a few basic features of the tool I suggested. Enough to get one researching if interest peaked."
"The tool's --help argument and man page is HIGHLY readable and easy to understand. No code was necessary."
"I don't need anymore reasons."
In all practicality, since this IS a communistic site where the majority vetos the minority, you moderators, terdon, and others can simply delete my answer, manufacture your own, and post it. It was a 4-year-old question for god's sake! Make a big deal from something petty all you wish fellas, it doesn't make this kind of forum better. Matter of fact, you all have made it worse from childish tantrums rather than allowing information to be learned by others. A nice lesson that the tech world needs to learn is: SPOONFEEDING DOESN'T TEACH.
Take another lesson from Richard Stallman:
Control over the use of one's ideas really constitutes control over other people's lives; and it is usually used to make their lives more difficult. ~R. Stallman
Call me an extremist or whatever, but my madness has a method and the method has pretense. And it doesn't matter if anyone agrees with it or not.Don't wine and cry to the moderators because you didn't get your way. That is called being spoiled and immature.
