Re: [opensuse] question on if clause formatting

I say, if you can't read the code, you by definition aren't qualified to
be monkeying with it,

Greybeards can read code and monkey with it.
Its one of the qualifications of a Greybeard.

The use of "if [" rather than "if test" is clear to a Greybeard.
If fact Real Greybeards don't need the "if":

[ ! -f $FILE ] && { .... }

In fact BaldingGreybeards write one-line perl and sed scripts.

So there! :-)

Then they write letters to the board demanding that the schools do
something about it. -- Arnold Lapiner
