Probable duplicate, see unix.stackexchange.com/questions/40277/… . Andreas Florath's ptee/pipexec answer particularly.

comment OpenLDAP Password Policy overlay error while loading
Re: ordering - backend databases have historically been identified by the numeric index (implicit by the order of their definition) mostly for backup/restore purposes. Also, when multiple databases/suffixes are used, the subordinates must be defined before their superiors (parents).

Don't forget about pushd/popd. Since this only uses a regular array, not an associative array it will work in bash 3.x too.

comment Empty a file without grep subsequently treating it like a binary file
If you truncate the file while open, the next write (by | tee) will refill it with zeros and the write will occur at the previous offset. grep treats an occurrence of 0 within the first buffer read (32kiB) as a binary file by default.

comment How can I see the exact command line being executed inside some bash instance?
With readline enabled you can also do this in gdb: print (char *)rl_line_buffer. The current command in a sequence is print (char *)the_printed_command. You may also call history_builtin(), but that will output on the tty of the bash process, so it might be less useful.
