comment Mounting and modifying a loopback file without sudo/root, is it possible?
maybe mountlo is interesting for your purpose!? mountlo can mount loopback devices from user space, at least this is mentioned in the description. You could add it to your distribution as a binary (or compile it on the fly), so your script can invoke it easily!?

comment package management
If you want yum to install packages which names are listed in a file or read from STDIN you can use xargs. If the packages are listed in a file the command looks like cat file_with_package-names | xargs yum or if you want to read the package names from STDIN which is very error-prone you must invoke cat | xargs yum

comment What's the difference between STDIN and arguments passed to command?
You're welcome. But i didn't mention that at least my version of man (man-db) reads arguments from STDIN with the given arguments -l followed by -. It just interprets data from STDIN as a man page. For more detailed explanations of valid arguments and how they are interpreted you have to consult the man page of the related program. In your case consult man man. Maybe there is a similar option for your man. If you want to read command line arguments for a specific program from STDIN xargs (like mentioned above) is the way to go.

comment Efficient mechanism to determine if open file has been externally modified?
I think you are on the right track. Have a look at http://www.steve.org.uk/Reference/Unix/faq_3.html#SEC36

comment Redirect stderr from an already running script
@AlanCurry I don't think that gdb expands macros if general debugging information is available. You have to compile the sources with special flags (see here ). Besides it is very uncommon that an arbitrary executable on your system has debugging information included (let anlone the information are extended with macro information). But i agree with you that code injection is generally not advisable, but there might be cases where you benefit.
