comment self-deleting shell script
@RFH: this is not an answer to this specific question but can perhaps help you solve the problem in a different way. If you're trying to manage the configuration of a set of servers you may want to look into a proper configuration management tool like puppet (puppetlabs.com), cfengine (cfengine.com), salt (saltstack.com), etc. Those tools not only can do the initial setup but they can guarantee that the configuration remains correct afterwards.

@TranSonHai: Sorry if you're irritated by the answer. But I honestly believe that in many cases this approach is very useful for users facing a similar problem.

comment Why brace expansion not supported?
@user43312: why are you still using RH9? It has been unmaintained for many many years. AS Stephane wrote it is a feature of recent bash versions. So it's very unlikely that your bash version supports it. You can check the version using bash --version. And just to be sure check if you are running a bash shell by checking the $SHELL variable or simply running ps. To use this feature you might try to start a zsh shell (zsh) first. Anothher workaround would be to use something like "mkdir $(seq 1 10)".

comment Bash, name of the stdin file?
side note: counting the signs is not the best way to check if a file is valid. While it is recommended to encode a greater than sign as > the w3c validator doesn't even generate a warning if you don't. So if you are trying to validate XHTML/XML/SGML/etc. you need to look into different tests.

comment Quoting original message after conversion from HTML to plain text in Outlook
I am looking for a solution to this problem as well. Reason is I received an email on a mailing list that is a) in HTML format and b) top posted. To fix the top posting I first need to convert it to text. Trying to move part of an HTML message around is terrible, I've not been able to have my reply marked as the "new" message, instead it is marked as being part of the most recent message.

comment FileNotFoundException when file exists with all permissions
FYI: Apparently this only fails on Linux, the same code on Windows does not throw this exception.
