If you're willing to wait, a slower version w/o sponge, (and w/o sorting), is this: . DNS () { for x in "" "" "" "" "" "" "" "" ""; do (echo -n "$x "; dig @"$x" "$*"|grep Query) ; done ; }

tar and remove files which are older that 100 days
tar does not have a -mtime option as find. tar appends all the file to an existing tar file.
