comment Match and combine records in Bash
I see, Anthon. I don't see this as a dup of the link that you posted as the input formats are completely different (the OP of that question is not taking data from the second file's rows), even if the join command does resolve both issues. I actually did do a comprehensive search before asking and was surprised that this question had not been asked before. My original worry would be that the answer would be in perl!

comment Match and combine records in Bash
Thank you Anthon. I don't mind the downvote if the question can be improved. Actually, I appreciate it so long as the downvoter mentions what needs improving! I mention bash as the for loop is done by Bash.

Thank you. The join command is perfect! Note that the bash breaks if lines are found in the given.csv file that have no match in the last.csv file, though that requirement was not specified in the OP. No mind that, answer accepted!

Thanks. I'll start throwing some bounties around for comprehensive answers. I need to wait two days if I put the bounty on this one.

Even in those threads, there is confusion and contradition. For example in the SuperUser thread, Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams mentions: "X11 is a network protocol", yet user113907 mentions: "X11 is the window system (the thing that draws the windows on the screen)".

Thank you don! I might close this as a dupe, let me go over those first. You would think that Google would have led me right to those pages and those that they link to.

@Gilles: Thank you for clarifying that. I distinctly remember a coworker setting the wrong permissions because he left out the leading 0, he was doing the incredibly stupid thing of running shell scripts as root through PHP. Note that people still do this with Plesk and the like.

comment Why is this binary file being changed?
Thank you Sim. Though in fact you were the first to post the correct answer, I did select Stéphane for the chosen answer due to the depth of his explanation. Not to worry, you've got a long post history that I am learning from, and of course I upvote those posts that I learn from. Thank you.
