A shell script for Tot
#!/bin/bash
# Fork of CHOCK's original tot.sh to add support for dot "0" to target
# the first empty dot.
# https://gist.github.com/chockenberry/d33ef5b6e6da4a3e4aa9b07b093d3c23
#
# 2 Mar 2020
# + Incorporated suggestions from ShellCheck (https://www.shellcheck.net).
# Thanks to Ramsey Dow.
# + Changed call to `python` to `/usr/bin/python` to get Python 2, avoiding
# conflicts for folks whose default `python` is Python 3.

If you've changed the default Python in your path to python3, this script will fail, but if you change line 76 to

    text=`cat $FILE | python -c 'import urllib.parse; import sys; print(urllib.parse.quote(sys.stdin.read()))'`

that will fix it.

My best idea: hardcoding the call to /usr/bin/python, which should be Python 2 for everyone, regardless their default for python.

That's probably the right thing to do.
