re: You missed one of the really great BASHisms: <( COMMAND ). Basically, run command in a subshell, then return it's output through a file-descript...
 

These are great! When I get in front of a keyboard, I’ll add them to the list! Thanks for sharing. What are the most common file-expecting commands you use the sub shell redirect with?

 

AWS CLI for (particularly for CloudFormation) seems to not quite process STDIN for the --parameters flag as one might expect. Usually have to do something like what I put in my article when I'm doing stack-iterations as part of a quick test-change-test cycle (where "quick" is relative to things like RDS - there's frequently not enough time to wait for one launch to delete before moving on to the next launch).

Thanks again for the tips! I just wanted to let you know that I updated the article with your suggestions. 😀
