I wouldn't be surprised if it did not have a name, only a numerical description... but I have no idea.

An OCR Program that can parse complex math? That is impressive.

comment WiFi N Gigabit Router
well, if you really mean a splitter that would be a horrible idea, because you can't split an ethernet signal. Now if you mean a switch that is true, but still, next to nothing is not nothing.

comment Is there a way to tell if a file is done copying?
Oh, not I just mean to me it is magic-y because I have never played with fifo pipes and it is something that isn't used quite as often as other things. Though something to learn now. Also, maintenance isn't much of an issue. This will be set up for about a day is all.

Actually I think I have figured it out, see my answer.

The way you explain this it would seem to work... but it seems a bit "dark magic" for my liking. I think found another solution that works the original way, but I will definitely keep this snippet for later use.

comment Is there a way to tell if a file is done copying?
Yes, that is the problem. I can't store all the files on B, but this copy will take long enough that I don't want to sit and babysit it by watching for each file to finish and then copying it. Maybe I will go with your expanded version.

Nope. It isn't under my control and doesn't seem to have any of the things I try and use. I was hoping bash might have something built in to do this. Though I might be able to run the script from my local machine... I will experiment with that.
