in reply to File created with system command does not exist

This may sound silly, but it works:   print STDERR the actual string that you intend to execute, then copy/paste that literal string to a new terminal session and try it.   Inevitably, you will right-away discover one of two things:   that the string isn’t as you thought it would be, or that when run by an actual shell it produces a syntax error of some kind.   So, avoid guessing ... try it.   (No one will see you say, “d’oh!”)

[marto]: unaware that the model in question started the cycle automatically, provided the money/token had already been provided
[marto]: CCTV footage of the joke gone wrong is used in educational materials now IIRC
[ambrus]: oiskuu: definitely not silly. have you ever tried to remove cat hair or dog hair from clothes? for many clothes, it's pretty hard, and running the washing machine with a cat inside would get the hair on everything.
[oiskuu]: YM, I'm interested in your questions... maybe start a a thread at polls.
[oiskuu]: marto, it ended badly? I doubt the power is easy to plug at those installations?
[marto]: oiskuu sadly yes
[Your Mother]: My cat used to climb into the freezer when I opened it. Once I closed it and left him for 5 minutes hoping to disuade the habit. When I opened it expecting a cat eager to never return he just stared at me. Had to pull him out.
[Your Mother]: oiskuu, I think we should just be friends.
