Sigh, does anyone else find themselves doing this? Deciding to automate something by writing a “little” bash script… it’s simple, it works as initially intended… BUT
Oh, I could make it do xyz…
… and I could add a help command line option
… and a version number option so I know I have the latest on this computer
… and I could add colours to the messages/output so it’s easier to follow
… it only works on “abc” base distros, but I could add a bit so it will work on “def” and “geh” based distros
… I could see if it can detect the current distro type
And before I know it my nice “little” 25 - 50 line script is 250 lines (and I’m still thinking I could add features I can think of, but probably never use).
Does anyone else do this, or is it just me that has no self control and is unable to quit, but keeps tinkering with things.
