I like to code and I do it a lot. I want to build software to save the planet. Passionate polyglot programmer, generalist with specialties. Code reviewer, unit tester, driver of change. I get things done.

I make free Android apps such as Programming Quiz, websites such as bashoneliners.com, and other open source stuff. I wrote a book on Bazaar Version Control, and an article on shell tips & tricks for Linux Journal.

I blog, tweet (@janosgyerik), and post "pro tips" on CoderWall.

comment Tail multiple files and output as additional column with 'find' results
True, I fixed the issues with spaces. The <(...) in paste <(cmd1) <(cmd2) is called Process Substitution. The idea is replacing <(...) with a named pipe, which contains the output of the commands inside. You can read about it in man bash under the Process Substitution section.

You want first a listing of ls -l, one line per file, plus at the end one more line with the content of the last lines pasted together like columns, like that?

comment Permissions not extended to user in minecraft group
Is /srv on a dedicated partition, or the same as /? What's the output of mount | grep /srv?

comment Permissions not extended to user in minecraft group
Yeah I mistyped it. I asked to confirm you have the right permissions up until /srv/minecraft itself, I was most interested in knowing if you can cd there

comment Bad substitution inside xargs subshell?
I think you should first state the real problem and the solution, and after that as an additional tip mention the potential quoting issue in case the filenames have spaces or other characters that need quoting.

comment Bad substitution inside xargs subshell?
I'm pretty sure the trailing slash is unnecessary. It's not anywhere in the doc you linked. Simply try to rerun without it and you'll see! (After you fixed as per the answer below.)
