Updated. MaxSessions limits "sessions" which are multiplexed over a single SSH connection, it won't help...

comment Find files whose basenames are the same, but their ext names are not
@sputnick good plan, parsing printf * suffers from at least one of the problems that parsing ls does.

comment How to disable systemd's “Time has been changed” message spam in systemd journal while using sdwdate?
systemd cares deeply about timers. This appears to be triggered by updating the hardware clock e.g. hwclock --systohc, are you calling that every second?

comment Constantly check if file is modified bash
You don't strictly need while. Also note that what a human considers a "modify" might not always work: this will catch an append for example, but it will not catch an editor such as vim (file watched is renamed or swapped with a backup), nor perl -i (in-place edit) which replaces the file with a new one. Once either of those happens, inotifywait will never return. Watching an inode and watching a filename aren't quite the same thing, so it depends on the use case.

comment How to print the code of a shell function in terminal?
A possible problem with the use of typeset/declare in bash is that older versions (<3.2) have stricter naming constraints than allowed in creation of functions: it denies a name containing "." (and other non-alphanums) if you want just that named function shown.

comment How to stop cursor from blinking
-cursor off is not quite what is asked for at all, it makes the cursor disappear... setterm -blink off seems more promising, but it affects text, not the actual cursor.

comment How to assign a string value to a variable over multiple lines while indented?
Failing to use quotes when expanding a variable causes problems sooner or later, starting with filename expansion (any of * ? []).

comment inotifywait - get old and new file name when renaming
I hope this feature will make it into the official version, but I have not forked it, and I'm not sure when I will find the time to fork and update all the comments (doxygen).
