You're right. This is what I wanted to do:

while true
do
ssh -R a:b:c host
sleep 10
done </dev/never >/dev/null

But I could do it like this:

while true
do
sleep 100000
done |
while true
do
ssh -R a:b:c host
sleep 10
done >/dev/null


Thank you.


Marko

PS Are /dev/null and /dev/zero also redundant?
