Hello. Once again I didn't read carefully and thought I was responding
to the Felix Miata subthread with the bash errors in *his* <script>,
which I believe exists.

Sorry for sowing confusion.

*Par ailleurs*, in the general context, I was looking at a method that
involved creating a variable rather than using redirection to a file. I
guess the following could be integrated directly into your
yet-to-be-written <script>.

list=$(lsblk -ln -o name,label | sort)
