Bonus points for not using cat, but it sounds like you're recommending a manual you yourself haven't read. $ for each in /etc/rc.d/* ; do more $each ; done Or skipping the unecessary logic: $ more /etc/rc.d/* Sarcasm is mostly counterproductive, doncha think? > If you need more than what is there then you probably need Kernigan > and Ritchie's The "C" Programming Language, (still) available on > amazon.com. My guess is the OP is inquiring about scripting in general, but bash(1) and readline(3) in particular. If that's the case, the manpages should be more than adequate; a reading of Mendel Cooper's Advanced Bash Scripting Guide (available for free at a Google search near you) would also be useful for a practical perspective. Recommending the K&R book I don't think is appropriate. > _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
