Don't worry; we all have our blind spots.

Don't waste your time writing new code for such  functionality.  Just
enable the hush shell as parser and implement it as a shell command /
script, for example something like that

	run dhcp_cmd || run tftp_cmd || run ipmi_cmd

You have the power of shell programming available for free - use it!

You young'uns. That was *long* before AltaVista,  DejaNews,  or  even
(gasp) the *Web*! In fact, we typed that thread on steam-powered card
punchers, and shipped it around via Pony Express.
