comment Do I need to setup my ZFS (using FreeBSD 10) for foreign-language files (e.g. filenames in Japanese/Thai/etc language)?
Could you provide a link to documentation about the limit, please? I haven't been able to find anything definitive in my (admittedly none-too-thorough) searches... Thanks!

comment bash + Is there something like log4j for bash script?
@terdon - I interpreted the question as wanting a logging tool for use in bash scripts. logger is suitable for that, but if the question is specific to logging errors from bash itself, then no - logger won't work, and the question needs to be updated to make it more explicit.

comment How to save a command you entered without executing it?
@arielCo Yes, it is easy to kill something else. In that case, after CTRL-Y returns the wrong item, you can cycle back through the kill ring with M-Y. Don't know if this works in ksh - I never use it. It works in bash and zsh, though.

comment command not found in shell script
You still need the space after echo - if you omit it, the shell expands what's in $variable and then tries to find the command that is called (in this example) echoThis with the arguments is variable. Almost certainly NOT what you want!

comment Which amongst the given option is TRUE about login shell?
If we do your homework for you, what do you learn? Try reading unix.stackexchange.com/help/how-to-ask, do some research on your own, and if you still can't figure it out, come back and ask again.
