comment How to determine the newly closed file within a continuous audit log rotation?
You might find fuser faster and easier, fuser -s filename will (silently) return 0 if filename is open. For similar purposes I usually use a program called retail which cashes filename/size/inode so log content can be incrementally processed without missing anything. Whether you can use that depends on the filename(s) and rotation mechanism (i.e. preservation of inode number).

comment md5 or sha1 while copying a file
rsync always does this when it copies files but it doesn't tell you what the checksum is, or verify it against a prepared checksums file.

comment Run two commands on one argument (without scripting)
stat - is handled specially since coreutils-8.0 (Oct 2009), in versions prior to that you will get an error (unless you have a file called - from a previous experiment, in which case you'll get the wrong results...)
