How do you make a response to a response? Like here I wanted to respond to this. I don't see a comment button.
@Alex @Dogbert This does answer the question, but '-s' can mask problems, e.g. when you use xargs with grep. Try creating 2 files in a dir, 'aaa.txt' and 'a b.txt', both containing the string 'some text'. The command /bin/ls -1 | xargs grep 'some text' will give you "no such file or directory" because it breaks up 'a b.txt' into 2 args. If you suppress, you won't notice you missed a file.
