comment why lualatex gives erorr “Too many open files” but pdflatex does not on same latex file?
@PaulGaborit Linux mint 7.2 does not have this command: >unlimit descriptors unlimit: command not found but I thought file handlers limits is fixed in the system to something like 1024 if I remember and can't be changed by the program. But I could be wrong.

comment why is adding `breqn` package breaks `etoolbox` command?
thanks. Initial test shows it works but generates what seems to be harmless error from lualatex but no such message from pdflatex. When I compiled using lualatex -shell-esc foo.tex I see message: (/usr/local/texlive/2015/texmf-dist/tex/generic/oberdiek/ifluatex.sty))) (./foo2.aux)id: invalid option -- '.' Try 'id --help' for more information. but when I look at the pdf file, I see the group id there ! I need to test this more on my main file which does something more complicated. thanks

@DavidCarlisle Ok, thanks. I am switching to egrep \shellcommand which works! but it has problem when I use breqn package, which I must use. I posted separate question on that. Latex is so hard.

@DavidCarlisle that was just an example. I am using the bash command to obtain different information. But using id -g for illustrations.

comment why is adding `breqn` package breaks `etoolbox` command?
@Bort I do not undertand. The command works fine when breq package is not included. This is a standard linux command: id -g gives me 1000. The error in the command was due to using the breq package.
