  ||   I can confirm that it works:
  | Great.  Thanks.
 It is indeed my pleasure.
  ||  Ok...  Ok, i realize that the NetBSD shell allows function names
  ||  which contain a hyphen-minus.
  | It allosw more than that - anything but \0 and /  (and that exception
  | only because it is impossible to call a function if its name includes /)
  | (And yes, you can have a \n in a function name ...)
 It is always depressing to realize how shallow i am scratching at
 the surface of the things i use, may it be vim, the shell, not to
 quote undefined C behaviour as an example.
 Newline definetely appears esoteric to me.
  ||  Very nice!!!  I am inclined to correct an elder and wiser man in
  ||  that it should be "auf",
  | Much elder, I presume, not at all wiser, and yes, of course, no idea
 Then i turn to the adjective more experienced without any
 transition.  Much more experienced.
  | how I screwed that one up ...  (it was all so long ago, and I never
  | was very good).
 I was thinking you made it "off" consciously, of course i failed
 to find some kind of appealing response to that, nothing more nor
  || and yes, why not "Auf Wiederschreiben"?
  | Indeed!
  ||  (But i never encountered this term.
  | I am not particularly surprised.    Especially when ciao works!
 Bella ciao, Bella ciao, Bella ciao ciao ciao.  Works.
  ||  in Germany that is, but mind you, it will not take long and we are
  ||  all talking English, unless a miracle happens.)
  | Americans!  (so it probably won't really be English).
  ||  I wish i could put some heart and soul in calligraphic Thai.
  | Me too.
  ||  Good bye!
  | \u0e2a\u0e27\u0e31\u0e2a\u0e14\u0e35  & G'day mate.
 Thank you very much.  All in return, and greetings to Thailand!
 Best wishes from Germany.
