Slightly geeky, overly cynical and delusional about my own self importance.

comment Using wildcards to match a directory in bash
Your two questions may be related in terms of a problem you're trying to solve (in which case, ask about that problem), but if you think about it from a web search point of view for someone trying to answer one of those two, they're different questions.

comment What logs would be written if file system is full in UNIX?
Which flavour of UNIX? Depending on the flavour, you may or may not have some evidence of the issue in /var/log, /var/adm/, errpt, syslog, or some other locations.

comment Kill many instances of a running process with one command
I agree, but killall is even more problematic because there are multiple tools with the same name, that have dramatically different behaviour it would seem. I don't like the killall answers either. pkill doesn't exist on AIX or HP-UX and despite what some people like to believe, there's still a significant based of non-Linux UNIX out in the world.

On AIX, it "cancels all processes that you started, except those producing the killall process."

On AIX, "killall [ - ] [ -Signal ]" and "The killall command cancels all processes that you started"

Not available on all UNIXes, and no mention of a specific UNIX or UNIX-like OS in the question.

I'm not sure it's that tricky, if you're after a specific binary it can be pretty reliable. I always run it as an echo kill -9 $pid first anyway so I know what I'm getting. I'm not sure AIX has pkill, which is my bread and butter UNIX. And is it really bad enough to be down-voted - odd.

I don't know what Git bash is, does it have the 'file' command?
