comment Pipes & redirection binding precedence with disjuncts, conjuncts etc?
Thanks for the detailed explanation on the role of (..) and {..}. I had concluded from previous bad experience that round brackets were only used in the context of "dynamic commands" (i.e. $(..)) since I could barely get them to do anything as far as associativity was concerned.

Very helpful - I'd mark this correct if it was a response. Just one more question - how do I alter precedence? In theory I think {...} should work. I might have tried it unsystematically and not got the expected results.

The vanilla Linux is too complicated for me to understand. I just want to see the essentials.

My next challenge is to add some extra pipes so that it will respond to HTTP requests.

comment Simplest screen echo server?
This doesn't answer the question. The poster wanted to display what the client sends. The only way I see is to use the "-c" or "-e" option but I'm hoping there's a solution using only pipes.

When/how does Ubuntu run the daemon? I don't see anything called 'avahi' in the output of ps -x
