Warning: Workflow Attempts to Compress the Entire Filesystem

You could also just do
killall gzip gtar
instead of the two commands.

Warning: Workflow Attempts to Compress the Entire Filesystem
Authored by: forman on Aug 06, '05 10:22:12PM

I rarely use "killall" as it will kill all processes with the matching procname running as the current user. Granted it's quicker and the probability of problem is small but the same thing can be said about "rm" without the "-i" flag (and I know everyone has "rm" aliased to "rm -i"). :)
