comment How to introduce timeout for shell scripting?
I'd like to highlight that if using GNU timeout, the return status of timeout itself is 124 in the case of a timeout, otherwise it's the command's return status (this is mentioned in Tim Kennedy's answer).

comment How do I perform an action on all files with a specific extension in subfolders in an elegant way?
@sch Are you sure? The find manpage shows find . -type f -exec file '{}' \; in the EXAMPLES section. Maybe some shells will treat braces specially.

Another useful piece of information is if the program is open-source.
