LOL.  Too right.  I am just so used to using process redirection to
solve the old "but my variables don't maintain their value after my
"<pipeline> | while read $var; do string="$string $var"; done" problem
that I immediately think of process redirection.

Of course instead of "<(cat $file)" I could have just used "$file".

What would be funny is if bash pointed one to the above URL when it
detected one doing something silly like that.


My other computer is your Microsoft Windows server.
