comment Inject lines to bash history
@CameronKerr Have a look at the answer just below this one (serverfault.com/a/695115/120438 ).The downside to using Ctrl+R in this particular case is that it gives you the relevant commands one at a time, while ewwhite's approach returns a list of all relevant commands.

It's the same when I try it on FreeBSD.

comment Shell Scripting - return to previous loop until process is completed then die/done
Also, what you're looking for is while instead of if on the first line. The man page for bash should tell you how it works.

comment Shell Scripting - return to previous loop until process is completed then die/done
I fixed the indentation. You also missed two closing parentheses, after the last two wc -l, which I added. You should use an editor which auto-indents and highlights parenthesis mismatches, that's how I found those two errors.

comment Newgrp: “Group does not exist”, but I have created the group
You wrote "I believe if one adds a new group that one has to re-initialize the system". I have never seen a unix system where this was the case, and I've many times added a group and used it directly, in more than one flavour of unix. Which is why I asked the poster about information about their particular system - once that is given, I may be able to find the answer. But I'm not going to try to re-create the issue on multiple systems on the chance of stumbling over whatever it is they're using.

It might help if you could give a clue as to which unix you're using.
