Nice! I did't realise which can do fancy things I always figured it for as dull a tool as there are.

comment Why won't the for loop execute on directory
Thought: There is nothing wrong with your script and you are not experiencing any problems. You just feel your script should behave differently, for reasons you are not telling us.

comment Monitoring script started by rc.local
That depends on the errors you are looking for. Apparently you are not seeking to have a service run, no matter what, but you are trying to debug an application that's still under development. Testing and debugging are a little beyond the scope of what I can help you with free of context.

init does what Anthon wrote as a comment to your question. it spawns a process and watches it. if the process is destroyed for whatever reason it is respawened. That's what respawn means in the inittab file. If you need to take special actions after the program crashes you need another program which does takes the special actions, but you haven't told us about those yet.

@biz14: correct on the monitoring. init does that for you, as long as you don't care about details on the crash. As Ulrich points out, you don't need to reboot.

comment Open screen in terminal after user login
You need give a much better description of your problem! 1. you can tie users only to sessions, not windows. 2. Without recompiling screen, you cannot prevent a user from issuing commands.

comment I want to expose “easy” URL's for machines on a home network. Is custom DNS/BIND the answer?
@DougStephen: The search domain is not an uncommon option. Even the Router I got from my ISP has this feature.

comment Triple compression and I only save 1% in space?
think about this: if all data could be compressed again and again, you could compress all data into 1 ASCII symbol. Do you think that can work?

comment Fully seperate two accounts without installing seperate operating systems?
please add to your question all (!) the reasons you need root acces for. that's key to selecting the correct method. in general you cannot have a restricted user with full access.
