comment Can't pipe into diff?
I personally prefer this answer. I needed to diff two different XML files; but they needed to be properly formed first. That led to this: diff -y <(xmllint --format "${1}") <(xmllint --format "${2}") which I now use all the time.

Thanks for the tip, I'll try to pass it along but those in charge may not care enough to actually do anything about it

comment Wget or curl a self-signed certificate from server
That works perfectly. There is a small typo, sed is missing a - before the ne options but that works and is exactly what I need. Thank you.

comment Replace instance of process in place?
In this instance I don't think this will work. The reason being in my case this shell script has many programs it runs (both before and after) and can take several hours. So while this could work in many cases, in this instance it's not really an elegant solution for me. Thanks though.

comment Replace instance of process in place?
The problem is not that I need to prevent Program-B from starting, the problem is I need to restart Program-A in place because it is part of a long series of commands that have to be run in order. Just quitting the script would cost irrecoverable hours of processing time. Thanks though, I'll keep that trick under my hat

comment Replace instance of process in place?
That is actually a good idea. That might be what I'm looking for, our work schedule won't permit me from experimenting with this today but I'll give this a try

comment Replace instance of process in place?
Sorry, I suppose I wasn't clear enough. The shell script is calling Program-A and then Program-B sequentially, I just want to be able to restart Program-A without it moving on to Program-B. Is that more sensical?
