comment Can I read and write to the same file in Linux without overwriting it?
cat can write to its output at any time; if it writes past the point at whatever is on the other side of the pipe has read, then you will read in what you wrote instead of the original file contents. That is what makes sponge special. It buffers its input until stdin closes, then writes.

comment Brackets in if condition: why am I getting syntax errors without whitespace?
@goldilocks, yes, that is my preferred style. The reason it's unusual is because he is not doing that.

comment Brackets in if condition: why am I getting syntax errors without whitespace?
The given answers are correct; you need whitespace after [. Additionally, look into the elif statement; it will help you clean things up. Also, the semicolons after the if statements are not necessary, but are also not incorrect, just strange.

Is it suitable to remove all \n characters, or is there a special case when a \n is not desired?
