Rewritten the answer to be more concise and more useful.

comment How to extract image from PDF file
@coderworks: GIMP will rasterize the imported PDF page into a given resolution. In other words, it is slightly better than using "Print Screen". Inkscape, on the other hand, will preserve the original vector data as well as the original raster images.

comment How to execute a command whenever a file changes?
Something like rerun foo "Some File" might break. But since you are using eval, it can be rewritten as rerun 'foo "Some File". Note that sometimes the path expansion might introduce spaces: rerun touch *.foo will likely break, and using rerun 'touch *.foo' has slightly different semantics (path expansion happening only once, or multiple times).

Okay, it works. However, dnsmasq will still resolve names if you have defined them in Static Leases. It happens because, behind-the-scenes, this option will write * to the DHCP leases; and dnsmasq will always use the leases when resolving names.

I believe you should use "$@" instead of $@, in order to properly work with arguments containing spaces. But at the same time you use eval, which forces the user of rerun to be extra careful when quoting.

Great idea! Unfortunately, it did not work. I tried adding dhcp-ignore-names to /etc/dnsmasq.conf, but the behavior remained the same. I've even tried editing /etc/init.d/dnsmasq to add --dhcp-ignore-names parameter, and checked using ps that it was used, but still no change in the behavior. (Of course, restarting with /etc/init.d/dnsmasq restart.)

@joeqwerty: Yes, I understand the purpose. Yes, I read OpenWRT wiki and dnsmasq manpage. The closest option I found was boguspriv, but it still looks in /etc/hosts and DHCP leases.
