comment Vi vs vim, or, is there any reason why I would ever want to use vi?
@amyassin This is incorrect, Ubuntu, like most Linux distributions,includes vim. vi is just a symbolic link that eventually point to vim in the default installation.

comment Bulk remove a large directory on a ZFS without traversing it recursively
Please do accept an answer if one solved the issue described in your original question. The problem you just append to your question looks to be quite different so should really be asked in a new question.

comment What's the philosophy behind delaying writing data to disk?
@SteveJessop I agree with your example but I would not expect a casual user to sync manually. If the editor used to write the precious novel doesn't call fsync or similar when the document is saved, this is a bug to be fixed, e.g. bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/817326 . I would use vi (vim) to write mine, vim calls fsync at save by default.

It's hard to tell without more information about what the rest of the script should be.
