Well I be darned it actually works ;) Got a technical explanation for this
too? Must be bash scripting stuff I'm not aware of.
But as previously stated by me and others cat'ting for scripts might not be
so desirable (though I'll be using it for my own personal purposes) for
various reasons. Decisions...decisions...decisions
cat constructs or echo constructs won't be used for the boot scripts. I will,
however, add a few lines to chapter7's introduction if people want to use cat
on the scripts. It's as simple as:
manually type: cat > output << "EOF"
<here you cope and paste>
manually type: EOF
How hard can that be eh?
