encoding with man command

i was tired of seeing unwanted strange characters when viewing man pages.... so i found that doing

alias man="man --encoding latin1"

resolved the problem for me.

My terminal is latin1 encoded, so I think 'man' know how to do the translations, as I know see everything right : )

see all attached javscript events to all objects on the dome... with jquery

see all attached javscript events to all objects on the dome... with jquery

you can execute directly in firebug:

$.fn.listHandlers = function(events, outputFunction) {
    return this.each(function(i){
        var elem = this,
            dEvents = $(this).data('events');
        if (!dEvents) {return;}
        $.each(dEvents, function(name, handler){
            if((new RegExp('^(' + (events === '*' ? '.+' : events.replace(',','|').replace(/^on/i,'')) + ')$' ,'i')).test(name)) {
               $.each(handler, function(i,handler){
                   outputFunction(elem, '\n' + i + ': [' + name + '] : ' + handler );
               });
           }
        });
    });
};
execute with:
$('*').listHandlers('*', console.info);

or
// List all onclick handlers of all anchor elements:
$('a').listHandlers('onclick', console.info);
// List all handlers for all events of all elements:
$('*').listHandlers('*', console.info);
// Write a custom output function:
$('#whatever').listHandlers('click',function(element,data){
    $('body').prepend('<br />' + element.nodeName + ': <br /><pre>' + data + '<\/pre>');
});
