comment Link to a specific inode
@Rob: No, it doesn't. If the file descriptor is in use, the symlink points to valid data, otherwise the symlink wouldn't exist in the first place. When the file is closed, the symlink disappears. You did have a space after the "3", right? If not, you'll output the contents of file descriptor 3 in the current shell instead, and that's probably empty.

comment Remove all files by filename (Linux one-liner)
Will not work correctly if there's (ugh) spaces, apostrophes, semicolons or other weird characters in the directory names.

comment Identifying changed files on *nix webserver
@Server\ Horror Yes, the original Tripwire has gone commercial, but when that happened, the project forked into "Open Source Tripwire" which is located at sourceforge.net/projects/tripwire .
