Having read your articles, I now find it prudent to go buy <at least!> the 'Learning Unix for Mac OS X', 'Mac OS X in a Nutshell', and 'Learning the Mac OS X terminal' books! Your articles are helping me along the road! I have a desire to automate thru CRON copying ascii flat-files created on an hourly basis - filenames such as "datafile_01.dat", "datafile_02.dat", etc - from one volume/filesystem to another. And I will have to do it as root. Will be watching for your follow-on articles that may give me some guidelines for doing this cleanly! THANKS!
