comment What makes grep consider a file to be binary?
My info was from the man page of the specific grep instance. Your comment about implementation is valid, source trumps docs.

comment Passing a command with arguments to a script

revised Find command associated with configuration file
Corrected mistake. Inotify does not say the name of the process, but auditd does.

Thnx, you are right; inotify does not tell you the name of the process that accessed the file.

comment How can I get the size of a file in a bash script?
I agree with notion of using "stat" over "wc" for filesize, however if you use "wc -c", no data will be read; instead lseek will be used to figure out the number of bytes in a file. lingrok.org/xref/coreutils/src/wc.c#228

comment How to kill all processes that don't have specific parent process?
Thanks, I'm aware of the pkill. I plan to compare output of pgrep and ps faux visually, and if all OK then run the pkill command.
