  • Heh, yep. As soon as I saw while true ; clear I thought “doesn’t he know about watch?”

    Amusing way to stumble over it by yourself, though. :-)

  • I go through those myself, but I'm too lazy to write the code, so I usually just shelve the thought or work around it.

    My last one is a 'blank' command, which will blank out a file, but leave it there (0 bytes) with the same privs, owners, etc. But there's prolly a easy workaround, like "echo '' > /path/to/file"
