Going mad(1) - TJ Holowaychuk
mad(1) is a tiny tool that allows you to view markdown manual pages. I’m a huge fan of man in general, but the format is pretty annoying and often converted from markdown, textile etc anyway. The output man produces is also pretty bad in my opinion, mainly whitespace issues.

tj/mad: mad(1) is a markdown manual page viewer
Probably want to apply right away, and 'cp *.md' from to ~/.local/share/mad.

This is also a really good template for new Bash utility scripts (good options parsing, local config, a 'share' directory, Makefile, self-update feature).

Linux Compose Key Sequences
<code>U00b0 ° "oo" degree # DEGREE SIGN</code>

Previously seen at:

IMPORTANT: YOU DON'T NEED THE "English (US, alternative international)" keymap to make em dashes or put accents/diaereses on top of letters. "AltGr" (key to choose third level) is not the same as "Compose." You *do* need to enable "Compose Key" under Shortcuts -> Typing in Ubuntu >= 14.04, though.

So... the answer to the big question is. The AltGr key chooses the third level (or so I understand it). Compose is a multi-character sequence that you kick off by C+<the first letter>, then Xkb listens for a series of keypresses that "compose" the special character.

Setting AltGr to RightAlt (prob. the default) and Compose to right Menu or Logo key seems to work well. Compose is not necessarily a function of the keymap, which was difficult for me to grasp.

Sometimes it seems like you have to HOLD DOWN the Compose key while you're typing the whole sequence. Other times not. With the basic "English (US)" keyboard, this seems not to be the case. With English (US, alternative international)," for instance, it *does* seem to be the case, often because the quotes are acting as "dead keys" that don't perform their normal function until you press another key like "Space" (or a letter, to add an accent/diaeresis).
