Hi,
One more question. I can imagine that someone got annoyed by this 
discussion in the wrong place, so I decided not to go on with it. But 
maybe someone has a great tip where to discuss bash scripting and maybe 
after that emacs. After all I need to stay productive in Linux and 
eventually I want to do whatever comes in my mind, as I could in good 
old dos, with just a snap of my fingers

I have been looking around but could not all by myself really find what 
fits my needs. For example: fora where questions have 678 views and zero 
answers, or fora only suited for people who have been digging in to 
Linux for years.

Thanks you all for all the help, you got me realy on the track, but 
there is still a long way to go.

Best,
Rinus
