kwrite "vi input mode" enabled accidentaly is quite annoying

First of all, you may be used to sometimes pasting stuff with shift+control+V instead of just control+V. Perhaps that's the way it's done in nano and/or some terminal emulators. The problem is that it's now also the default shortcut to enable "vi edit mode" in kwrite.

For people who like myself, don't really get "vi", using nano or something like that when forced to use cli editors, if you're in kwrite (perhaps also kate) and all of a sudden it seems to behave...

Parsing script arguments in bash, without getopt(s)

Tags arguments, bash

Makepkg makepkg.conf Optimizations

Here are my /etc/makepkg.conf Optimizations

Makepkg.conf is used whenever you build a package from the Aur or any other source. (makepkg -si)

1) Set -march and -mtune to native to optimize packages to your CPU architecture.
Do not fiddle with this if you are building packages for someone else who has different CPU

CFLAGS="-march=native -mtune=native -O2 -pipe -fstack-protector-strong --param=ssp-buffer-size=4"
