I use a construction like this:

command 1 &&
command 2 &&
command 3 &&
command 4
} &> somelogfile.log || tail somelogfile.log

If something goes wrong you get the last 10 line (I think) so you can
see what went wrong.



Open(source) your mind, and see real freedom!
Close(dsource) your mind and be in a prisson.
