Re: some dumb questions

> scrambling parts of ls.b, grep.b and du.b

The way I mirror changes from the main Inferno source tree to various
outlying development computers uses a similar tool, reproduced below.
You can adapt it to your own needs or even add a "find" user interface,
if that's what you want.  My main point is that I personally find it
clean enough to invoke programs from other programs that I don't resort
as quickly to a shell script as I did in Unix.

Best wishes, Eric
