What is FMGC? Could you define initialism before using it?

comment Can Mathematica be used for developing “normal” stand-alone software?
@Szabolcs, I know that. What I'm trying to get to is that I need some concrete examples or some kind of evidence that such example does not exist as regularity to answer the question of "Mathematica can normally only be used as a tool for scientists but not for software developers to make normal/normal-looking softwares."

comment Can Mathematica be used for developing “normal” stand-alone software?
I agree. I realize that so at the very beginning I pointed out the definition of "normal" is poorly defined. But I think you know what I mean by "normal" or "normal-looking" softwares.

The demonstration applications shown there is more like really light-weight Java Applets. But I'm more interested in serious large software such as a video player, an editor, etc. Has Mathematica ever been used for writing such softwares?

comment What's real analogue for FromDigits?
Internal`StringToDouble is fine. ToExpression is too dangerous in general Interpreter is not backwards compatible.

comment How to determine if directories with executable permission and not
What is "-c" and "-x" for respectively? What's documentation for those? The answer is incomplete without any mentioning of such.

comment How to determine if directories with executable permission and not
That relies on seeing UNIX permission values directly. Any "indirect" way? I want to see if I can "execute" anything in the directory. But how to test this "execute" in Mathematica?

comment Is there a way to hide or toggle the visibility of code?
A special case of this, I'd like to make some buttons in a notebook which is used ans GUI for some package. After the buttons are made, the code producing them should be hidden. What's the proper way to achieve this?
