comment How to “fake” a front-end object when running a Mathematica script?
Actually, instead of UsingFrontEnd, is it possible to set $FrontEnd to something at the beginning of my script, so whatever requires on can find it, but I won't need to find every command that possibly need one and wrap each of them with UsingFrontEnd, since I don't understand the code?

comment How to “fake” a front-end object when running a Mathematica script?
I just don't know what the arguments are supposed to be. echo $DISPLAY on my Mac computer gives /private/tmp/com.apple.launchd.6aaobKJfXJ/org.macosforge.xquartz:0

comment How to draw a dodecahedron with each face modified to a pentagram?
But I actually want the each four neighbouring edges currently enclosing a halo to be connected by a smooth added new face. Also, each pentagram should not have a halo center.

comment What to do with Extras.pkg when installing multiple versions of Mathematica?
They won't respond in time (for my current need) -- That's why I ask here. I'll take that as that I need to install Extras.pkg from the latest version of the different versions of Mathematica I'm installing.

comment What to do with Extras.pkg when installing multiple versions of Mathematica?
Do I need to click and install Extras.pkg for every version of Mathematica I'm installing? Will doing that overwrite each other and cause any undesirable effect?

comment How to set options in Option Inspector in notebooks by running commands?
That's not what I meant. I mean the configurations one is asked to set in the Options Inspector.

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.

comment Can Mathematica be used for developing “normal” stand-alone software?
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?

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?
