Yes that works; thanks.
Also worth noting is that the fresh copy of the script must be
closed before it can be executed. Therefore the <mask> must be
IN_CLOSE_WRITE rather than IN_MODIFY. The distinction
is mentioned in the FAQ at http://inotify.aiken.cz/ .
I'm wondering whether the little wrapper script can be
eliminated. Is there a command which "redirects" stdout
to a specified file until the current script exits? If
such a command is the first command in the script and an
analogue for stderr is the second command, then the wrapper
is not needed.
Thanks, ... Peter E.
