I had a brief fling with Homebrew, and could not get on with it at all. So I blew it away. (I now use MacPorts for the sort of thing I might have wanted Homebrew for, and find it much more stable.) I realize this does not address your question in the slightest, but for some odd reason, I feel better for having shared. :)
anyone ever seen brew do a weird duplication thing like this?
A bit sledgehammer for this nut. But thanks! I'm going to try "[script-as-service](https://developer.apple.com/library/archive/documentation/LanguagesUtilities/Conceptual/MacAutomationScriptingGuide/MakeaSystem-WideService.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40016239-CH46-SW1)" and see if that gets me where I want to go.
I think animated gifs is a browser problem, and I have FF configured to play only once!
@Jack (You've been really patient with that "DO IT" animated gif! ;) )
Right, all: this is a "macos" question, but I'm not sure it's a `ta.nix` question. I know that on Ubuntu I can use `ALT+F2` to run a command. Is there an equivalent on OSX? I don't want Spotlight (`command-spacebar`), as it doesn't find what I want to run. So: is there a key combo that runs a command? (As if it was running from command line on terminal, *but not using terminal*...)??
🤔it's entirely possible db<>fiddle is just better fit for purpose at the moment esp. with the `?hide` support. perhaps more complex scripting demos can be a "stretch goal" sort of thing, but not a "right now" thing
at the moment we've only got the 'input', and tbh I don't understand what the different fields mean or why this doesn't produce output: https://tio.run/##XY/BjsIgFEX3fMUNaUIyQo2drZ3duPUHWMgUGhorGGi0rc63z0AbN7Ig4TzuyX1ztH/pmMZ6UMV/pNvxUbpPPktX8YniC633ZRNvJBilITQYywj7Pb6PBxAftAm1PA2q6yEcNtUrgSeiDwOEaDvTaxHNVQU1@FAzzhI9m6nepYg8kdYHBH9H5yCLxUi0J0Db9Sa5l3qyyD@eUPczxIFyCva4hs4NaVL9smQBzE31oOVWFjlZRkuTxxmSmpJ1xyKVe20V7QrZco8s4fENThlOb3DOcM6QNPbiNTYjPvKz3K7afw
for Q 712 above, i was thinking about trying to TIO it, but i'm not 100% sure how to handle it gracefully (a la with hidden batches as in db<>fiddle). is there a sensible way to restructure that question with embedded TIO, or is that just too much setup?
([here's what i've got so far](https://tio.run/##XY@xbsMgFEV3vuIKWUJqwFHcNe7WrP0BhlCDhRUXIrAS202/3QVbWbI86R24R/fN0S6msR5U8W/pDnyU7p3P0lV8ovhA633ZxBsJRmkIDcYywvGIz68TiA/ahFqeB9X1EA676pnAA9GHAUK0nem1iOaqghp8qBlniV7MVB9SRJ5J6wOCv6NzkMVqJNoToO16k9xrPVnkHw@o@wXiRDkF@72Gzg3ppfpjyQKYm@pBy70scrKMliaPMyQ1JduNRSr3vCraDbJ1jizh8QVOGU4vcM5wzpA09sdr7Ea8pXUp95t2Wf4B))
