comment Why are some processes “killable” by pkill but not killall?
Doesn't your linked question answer yours? killall does exact matching but pkill does not. Is that not the answer?

Does fs_usage ever terminate? If not you need a different approach. What tail does is get you the last line(s). It can't know what the last line is until its input terminates, so as long as the pipe chain is held open tail will never output anything.

comment Increasing ulimit stack size benefits?
As far as I know, stack size should not affect speed. If you don't have enough you crash with a stack overflow error. More stack usually should not affect performance.

comment Print last character in the given path
@Aravind Albert's answer assumed you were using bash. If you are using ksh there may be feature differences causing your error. See my answer for something that works in all shells.

comment Rename files with even numbers
@KasiyA I see, the leading zeroes were being interpreted as octal numbers. Stripping out the leading zeroes seemed like the easiest way to fix that issue.
