    Thanks for the great scripts… I’m currently trying to up my skills on shell programming and these are extremely useful and very cleanly written. Please keep them coming!

    This is a very good script. I modified it, because i needed an output of “dmidecode”. I thought it’s useful…

    good day,vivek.

    I am currently developing a project that is similar to ftp by using shell script.In my project,I try to implement one replication technique called Read-One-Write-All (ROWA).Do you have any idea how to develop the sourcecode or if possible,any similar project that I could refer to.
    Thank you.
