ok, i understand this bit now. 

not quite understand the syntax of the script below:( i got a fedora
book and in it there is a format of 

[sonicvariable at localhost sonicvariable]$ cat .pdrc
[sonicvariable at localhost sonicvariable]

would this also work?

i have tried making a script this way but keeps the rest of the script
the same as you have below apart from the actual file paths. but i got
'permission denied '?
