Oh what whall I say...
That "-> <-" was really costing my nerves!
Thanks here again to Made In Germany (MIG) for his 'echo wrappers' (and the additional help)!

Luckily at least ask seemed to work 'out of the box' for the pipe tweaks today. Smilie

Allthough the average load & output time was around 0.150 s (0.097-0.210), it recently became 'jumps' up to 0.300 or higher.
As a natural tweaker, I wanted to fix this, one breaks things along the way - which helped to make the load sequence more stable.

As I had prepared a subshell process if no $COLUMNS and no $LINES should be available,
to have them calculated and exported, but since my sytem has them at hand, well, I just assumed the code would work,
since there were subprocess and I had seen with set -x that the code indeed was executed in the shell.

Regardless, the exported variables were not to be found in the shell I sourced the file with the the sub process in from.
Something like this:
[sea/ .bin]$ cat testfile 
	declare -g my_test_a="a test"
	export my_test_b="an exported beer"
[sea/ .bin]$ . testfile 
[sea/ .bin]$ echo $my_test_a

[sea/ .bin]$ echo $my_test_b

Well, something like this, but with a looped sleep while grep checked the ps output for the $PPID as actual sub process.

That was quite, disencouraging.
This would have been so cool, real multi-tasking in console!
Guess I'm too much of a dreamer Smilie

Next will be alot of small utility functions, and to finalize the current core commands with 'help' functionality - before adding new core (usualy slitly bigger/ more complex command functions..

sh - overview of various system shells SYNOPSIS
POSIX Shell option] ... string] [arg ...] option] ... string] [arg ...] Korn Shell option] ... string] [arg ...] option] ... string] [arg ...] C Shell [command_file] [argument_list ...] Key Shell DESCRIPTION
Remarks The POSIX .2 standard requires that, on a POSIX-compliant system, executing the command activates the POSIX shell (located in file on HP-UX systems), and executing the command produces an on-line manual entry that displays the syntax of the POSIX shell command-line. However, the command has historically been associated with the conventional Bourne shell, which could confuse some users. To meet stan- dards requirements and also clarify the relationships of the various shells and where they reside on the system, this entry provides com- mand-line syntax and a brief description of each shell, and lists the names of the manual entries where each shell is described in greater detail. The Bourne shell is removed from the system starting with HP-UX 11i Version 1.5. Please use the POSIX shell as an alternative. Shell Descriptions The HP-UX operating system supports the following shells: POSIX-conforming command programming language and command interpreter residing in file Can execute commands read from a terminal or a file. This shell conforms to current POSIX standards in effect at the time the HP-UX system release was introduced, and is similar to the Korn shell in many respects. Similar in many respects to the Korn shell, the POSIX shell contains a history mechanism, supports job control, and provides various other useful features. Korn-shell command programming language and commands interpreter residing in file Can execute commands read from a terminal or a file. This shell, like the POSIX shell, contains a his- tory mechanism, supports job control, and provides various other useful features. A command language interpreter that incorporates a command history buffer, C-language-like syntax, and job control facilities. Restricted version of the POSIX shell command interpreter. Sets up a login name and execution environment whose capabilities are more controlled (restricted) than normal user shells. restricted version of the Korn-shell command interpreter Sets up a login name and execution environment whose capabilities are more controlled (restricted) than normal user shells. An extension of the standard Korn Shell that uses hierarchical softkey menus and context-sensitive help. +--------------+--------------------+ | To obtain: | Use the command: | +--------------+--------------------+ | POSIX Shell | /usr/bin/sh ... | | Korn Shell | /usr/bin/ksh ... | | C Shell | /usr/bin/csh ... | | Key Shell | /usr/bin/keysh | +--------------+--------------------+ These shells can also be the default invocation, depending on the entry in the file. See also chsh(1). WARNINGS
Many manual entries contain descriptions of shell behavior or describe program or application behavior similar to ``the shell'' with a ref- erence to ``see sh(1)''. SEE ALSO
For more information on the various individual shells, see: keysh(1) Key Shell description. ksh(1) Korn Shell description. sh-posix(1) POSIX Shell description. csh(1) C Shell description. sh(1)
