comment Monitor what is being sent to /dev/null?
Indeed, I just found this question because I was considering what an analysis of the content from many captured /dev/nulls might turn up. I wouldn't want to do the research myself, but I'd love to read the results. (There would very likely be some ethical issues in "looking through people's trash" essentially, but the concept is interesting nonetheless.)

comment Find the owner of a directory or file, but only return that and nothing else
There are some caveats with the ls | awk approach too unfortunately, as I've noted here. I haven't yet come up with a solution for the, "target file/dir is a symlink with a different name," issue I mentioned in my recent comment.

comment How do I recursively check permissions in reverse?
This is my favorite because it requires no dependencies. Might want to make it cd .. >/dev/null though for those of us with a $CDPATH set (which causes cd to output the current dir when it's used and that interferes with the output from your function.)
