comment Configure sendmail to send only
/etc/mail/sendmail.conf is specific to your OS/distro. In fact, nothing like this is standard.

comment Open a text file in a terminal and auto-refresh it whenever it is changed
google -> py inotify "Pyinotify is a Python module for monitoring filesystems changes. Pyinotify relies on a Linux Kernel feature (merged in kernel 2.6.13) called inotify. inotify is an event-driven notifier, its notifications are exported from kernel space to user space through three system calls. pyinotify binds these system calls and provides an implementation on top of them offering a generic and abstract way to manipulate those functionalities."

comment Open a text file in a terminal and auto-refresh it whenever it is changed
What is that good for? What is this file about? If it is a log, it usually has new lines added to the bottom, then you could just use tail -f $file.

comment Remove all *.mp4 and *.zip but some files
It's not about your app is not portable. It's about good behaviour. World is not only bash/Linux. Use the strength of bash when it makes really sense but this is not the case. Maybe one day you would sit in front of Solaris, *BSD, AIX... Then what? It's nothing more stupid than bash-based shebang when it is not needed.

GNUism. Please be more general and use either 'exec rm' or 'xargs rm'. Thanks.

Bashism... Bleah. Use find and learn how to make it portable between various system. Why would one need to use bash for such simple goal?

comment How to recover files I deleted now by running rm *?
There are SOME ways to recover files/data. But most of them is very hard to do. Be sure you don't write any more to the disk or you are doomed completely.
