There is probably an anecdote from the Bell Labs from the early 1970s which either solves your problem or improves your understanding of it.

comment how to add a unique number|datetime|message id to an email subject with procmail
If you are using Berkeley format and/or procmail -f the From_ line will contain a date stamp. This is well-covered territory; Google for a bit. pm-jadate from Jari Aalto's recipe collection is one example. Similarly, you can grab the Message-Id into MATCH and put it in the Subject: header if you like, but I fail to see the utility of this.

Thanks for the xetex/xelatex tip, I could have been stuck in the maze for much longer.

Can you explain how this helps? I have a document in English but I need some examples in Cyrillic, and some in Japanese, etc. Does T2A select Cyrillic specifically?

comment scp to remote server with sudo
Whatever you are trying to accomplish, chmod 777 is usually the wrong way to do it. Consider what could happen if somebody else was logged in and knew you were about to run this code.
