comment What is the $BASH_COMMAND variable good for?
It's possible that in the bash interpreter, set is not a "command". Just as = is not a "command". Processing of the text following/surrounding those tokens could have entirely different logic than the processing of a "command."

comment Recovering moved .mod files using grubrescue
Are you sure the first partition is (hd0) and not something like (hd0,0)? I assume the others are MSDOS formatted partitions. Wish I could be of more help. Can anyone else help? I'm getting into the weeds.

comment How to prompt users with a GUI dialog box to choose file/directory path, via the command-line?
Yad is a dramatically enhanced fork of Zenity and has largely replaced it since the Zenity project went dormant. I see that Zenity is now back in development at Gnome.org (Gnome3 only?) but I see no way download it.

comment How can I create a wget GUI with multiple progress bars?
@Glutanimate - One brief note to avoid much confusion: Many of the references on PuppyLinux forums refer to "gtkdialog3" and "gtkdialog4". These are just simpler synonyms for the real GtkDialog versions and they're not even consistent. Version 0.8.3 that you grabbed is the latest and is quite stable. ( Moderators: No more on GtkDialog here. Anyone interested in it should please post new questions. )

To have additional controls, you would need to step up to GtkDialog which lets you do pretty much anything. However, it's a lot more involved. The PuppyLinux community makes extensive use of it.
