[Xlog-discussion] serial numbers from xlog

I had a weird idea to get serial numbers for a contest: Make xlog to write 
after every qso, and then just add the line number to 599000. Using bash, 
it would look like this:

$ echo "599000 +" `cat /home/daniel/.xlog/test.xlog | wc -l` | bc

or, if you prefer $() notation:

$ echo "599000 +" $(cat /home/daniel/.xlog/test.xlog | wc -l) | bc

However, if I use this as macro in gmfsk

$( $( echo "599000 +" $(cat /home/daniel/.xlog/test.xlog | wc -l) | bc ))

... I fail to get a 599003 or whatever, but some error messages about 
"failed to execute child process".

I agree that the whole idea is crude and not worth following up, there are 
certainly elegant ways for directly getting a QSO number from xlog.
