  • Here on Ask Ubuntu / Stack Exchange: If you have enough rep to talk in chat (20 network-wide), you can ping me in main chat, even if I'm not there. If I've been in the room in the last 3 days, I'll be notified (but I may not see or reply immediately). To do this, include @EliahKagan in your message. You may also invite me to another chat room.

I'm Occasionally Asked For My Comments (but not in the way you think ;-) )

Please feel free to use my pro-forma comments, most of which are derived from the defaults or the ones shared here rather than being written from scratch by me (some are even identical):

  • Import/access them in plaintext or jsonp (last updated 2 July 2013).

I do not claim original authorship of them, but if any of them turn out to be wrong or not very good, that is possibly my fault. :-)

comment Reading Cronjob Output
It sounds like you're doing two things: a job that produces output whose starting and ending characters are of interest, and a separate script that examines the output. Please show us both--or simplified versions of both, to which the question still fully applies. The most common ways of having one task examine the output of another--piping output from one task to another (or, similarly, using process substitution or command substitution), and having one task log to a file which is read by the other--work exactly the same from a cron job. Right now I think it's unclear what your problem is.
