If it's just variables that were bothering me that would have been a good 

But look at this:

some junk here
	kill -9 `cat /var/run/$`

in that cat > out << eof the `cat /var/run/$` results in bash running 
cat /var/run/$ and you can't declare a variable to get around that 
problem. Got a solution for that too?
