Not an answer to your question so much as an observation.

The code in the else clause is rather similar to the code in the 'if' clause, so the code ought to be simplified. If you write code with duplicated sections, it makes it much harder to find out what went wrong and why.

A Monk aims to give answers to those who have none, and to learn from those who know more.

    [Corion]: I still somewhat wonder if it were worthwhile to replace init / systemd by make with a simple? Makefile listing the dependencies ...
    [Discipulus]: i have a different opinion: automation is always worth: first i can use Perl (and this is good), then later you can reuse parts to automate others tasks. My $boss everytime say:'how much time you spend doing this?' So generally i present a perl solution
    [Corion]: Discipulus: Yes, but the chart gives some limits on whether it's really worth spending time for saving your time. If you gain enjoyment, automating is still great, but it doesn't save time ;)
    [Discipulus]: Corion are you would able to realize such thing? O_O
    [Corion]: In the same vein I have a script that automates Firefox to enter some data into another system. It's not faster than the people using the script if they were to do it manually, but they prefer not having to check the data and not having typos when ...
