@Pavan If you found a solution you can just post it as an answer an accept it (although piping the password to sudo like that definitely doesn't work)

@star Celada's answer does this. The first big paragraph is about using . in a pathname, the second is about using it as a command

comment Having problem booting kali linux live from a usb
The important part for you was using the i386 ISO instead of the amd64 ISO when targeting a 32-bit machine. It doesn't matter if the machine you used to write the USB stick is 64-bit

comment Send a message to a “screen” to be received by a device on /dev
I'm not sure what your problem was before, but this doesn't change anything. You ran echo as root using sudo, but the redirection is handled by your shell and is unaffected

comment How can I securely delete the contents of a thumb drive so data can't be recovered.
I'm not sure what your definition of "completly wiped" is if the data is still recoverable, but making new files with the same name won't really help

comment How to duplicate a file a number of times while embedding an index in each file
I edited the question to include all the comments and removed them. There was a conflict between what the question said ("If the file already exists, I should get an error saying already exists.") and one of the comments ("if A already exist then it should go for B."). I went with the comment since it was more recent

comment Check in bash if make has done something
@schily Please stop pretending you're confused when people refer to a GNU tool by its name. There's no need to call it gwhatever when the context is clear, and it can't be clearer in a question that's tagged [gnu-make] and says "I'm using GNU Make 4.0.". Whatever personal vendetta you have going on is your business, but you're confusing people for no reason
