Elected moderator on Unix & Linux. Feel free to @ping me in chat if there's anything I can help you with.

I've been using Linux since the late '90s and have gone through a variety of distributions. At one time or another, I've been a user of Mandrake, SuSe, openSuSe, Fedora, RedHat, Ubuntu, Mint, Arch and for the past few years Linux Mint Debian Edition (which is basically Debian testing but more green).

My Linux expertise, if I can grace it with such a lofty title, is mostly on manipulating text and regular expressions since that represents a large chunk of my daily work.

Wow, you most certainly did! Thanks and +1.

what bash script? What does vim have to do with it? What exactly is the EOEX construct? Please edit your question and explain what tools you are using and what exactly you want to do.

I'm not at my computer, so I can't check now, but it should be in the output of locale. Also show us the output of echo $w.

@Vesnog please edit your question and include your locale. It looks like you're using a locale with comma as a decimal separator instead of dot.

comment looping a command without waiting for the first run
Yes, but I am still not sure what you want to do. It looks like you are trying to run the mysql command once a minute for ever. You also seem to have some requirements about how to stop it. Please edit and state what you need clearly. That will help both those who want to answer and anyone else who might search for similar functionality.

comment looping a command without waiting for the first run
Please edit your question and explain what you're trying to do. Your two commands are not equivalent (they will react differently if the mysql command return an error for example).

comment How to list all running daemons?
I suggest you post a different question asking what a daemon is.

comment How to list all running daemons?
Yes they are, but you don't seem to like that definition :). If you accept that daemon==service, then service --status-all gives you everything you want. You seem to want more which is why I ask how you define "daemon".

comment How to list all running daemons?
Well, if you define daemons as services, service --status-all is what you need. Ubuntu seems to treat NetworkManager differently. I get both networking and network-manager in the output of services --status-all on Debian but only networking on Ubuntu. I think you need to define what exactly you mean by "daemon".

comment How to list all running daemons?
Anacron not being a daemon is more a question of semantics because it is not run constantly. It is still run as a service which is what you normally refer to as daemons. Please edit your question and i) tell us which Ubuntu you are running and ii) what exactly you mean by "daemon". What is your final objective here?

comment How to list all running daemons?
Are you sure it's not listed? How are you checking? I can see it on my Debian. Note that the name is network-manager, not NetworkManager.
