comment How to combine Bash's read with HERE-document when shopt -os errexit is in place?
An external command such as cat is always an alternative but I prefer to use Bash built-in's wherever possible. Also inserting \n at the end of each line is not an option for me since my actual text is around 50 lines long.

comment How to combine Bash's process substitution with HERE-document?
I tried your "workaround" and it would work for me. Thanks. But still I want to grasp why my combination of a HERE-document nested inside a process substitution does not work. Have you got an answer?

I must admit it is a contrived example. My actual needs are more complex than that.

Don't you mean the ^ caret instead of ! exclamation character for negating the characters inside a class?

comment Bash's declare -p HISTIGNORE brings bash to a halt! Why?
Is it really necessary to escape a : colon character that is part for example of a POSIX character class? I also thought about cutting my rather complex HISTIGNORE value down to $'!(*[[\:space\:]]*)'.

comment Bash's declare -p HISTIGNORE brings bash to a halt! Why?
I've already filed a bug report to bug-bash@gnu.org because even when bash should eventually return with a command prompt the delay it causes is unacceptable for me.

revised Why not simply use %h in OpenSSH ssh's ControlPath option?
I don't think that citing the man pages helps to explain my very specific question.

comment Why not simply use %h in OpenSSH ssh's ControlPath option?
Thanks a lot. Before your elaborate answer I missed the fact, that it's not possible to share a client's master socket between different remote users without at the same time the second remote user assuming the identity of the first one.
