This opinion of *nix trying to be too smart, may be applicable.

I've spent quite some time trying to analyse your code.
The very 1st line [of linux syntax] is problematic for me:
 apparently the EVALUATION of <pid $$> [what ever that is]
 is embedded in the reporting of <pid $$>.

IMO <linux syntax> has too many hidden-hooks to catch you;
like special rules for the 17th Tuesday of a non-leap-year.

After the multics OS failed, from excess complexity, Unix was
a spoof-name, trying to emphasise simplicity.
Later, the blokes who designed unix abandoned it, for a simpler
design: plan9.
