What i like about this script is ive found a way to maintain timed loops inside the while loop itself using let. I would love any feedback to see if this is a viable script free from errors.

Thank you for this script. Works flawlessly and very well !

ash is superseded by Dash in Debian since DebianSarge

You can still use ash in De??an:

# apt install busybox
# ln -s /bin/busybox /bin/ash
# echo '/bin/ash' >> /etc/shells

Alpine Linux uses busybox's ash as their default shell and it's very nice.

EDIT: actually I think that's the same as dash:

Thanks for the helpful advice  smile

#25 Re: Installation » recommented init system » 2021-02-24 12:52:39

Yes, use default (sysvinit). It is rock solid and easy to use. Another choose (runit and openrc) is for those who know what they are doing.
