comment Run ssh login command without modifying remote .bashrc
Because there's a command in .bashrc that overrides it? Add --norc, or --rcfile yourfile.rc instead.

comment How to stop a infinite running process (ztail) started by a ssh session after that session is closed
"If the ssh session terminates, the kernel kills all child processes as well." Not exactly. The kernel sends a SIGHUP to the process group when the controlling terminal disappears, or the session leader dies creating an orphaned process group. It is likely ztail is either affecting sessions/process groups with setpgid or setsid, or ignoring SIGHUP. See chapter 9 in APUE for all the gory details.

That's simply not true. You can sleep for less than a jiffy. See my edit.

... and trigger an immediate wakeup for your process. What's your point? Sure, if you have a higher priority process also running then the scheduler might decide that the other process gets to run instead of you, but that's always a problem on a multitasking operating system, and can be solved with appropriate application of SCHED_RR, SCHED_FIFO, priorities, etc.

The kernel could do that, yes, but it doesn't, nor does it provide any way for you to get at that data from outside the kernel. You could change the kernel, of course.

Yeah, exactly. From the point of view of most spam filters, as long as Sender shows the actual sender for tracing purposes, it's OK to put whatever you want in the user-visible From field.
