global bash shell functionsview story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi, I wonder if there is anyway to make a user-defined bash shell function global, meaning the function can be use in any bash shell scripts, interactively or not. This is what I attempted: Code: $ tail -n 3 /etc/bashrc echotm () {   echo "[`date`] $@" } $ echotm hello world [Mon Sep 13 17:15:28 HKT 2010] hello world $ cat a.sh #!/bin/sh echotm hello world $ sh a.sh a.sh: li (HowTos)

need answers regarding case statements in bash scriptsview story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – while learning to write bash scripts, i decided to write some script that, given an integer as input, will tell you the square root of that integer (provided the integer in question is a perfect square). i have already done on using primarily if statements and a while loop. i decided that using a case statement would be a lot simpler and i would be able to make the script more functional.

ls -R without changing access time/dateview story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I am using cygwin in order to test a bash script that uses the ls -R command. When I use this, the access date of the subfolders are changed, and I need them to remain what they were before the command was run. I don't have access to a legitimate Linux system, so I'm not sure if this is the fault of cygwin or the ls command. (HowTos)
