Ok. There is a misunderstanding here. The script I am running is the
for loop in a .sh file. The for loop references a file named
proto-7.7.md5 which I mistakingly called a script. Sorry for that. I
am not running that as a script, I am running my sh file as a script.
Now. That being cleared up, When I run that loop, it seems that it
attempts to run the loop on applewmproto-1.4.2 regardless of the #.
Therefore, it errors out. When I ran the loop OUTSIDE of the bash -e
shell, it obviously showed the error on that file, but continued on
and finished just fine. So basically, my problem has been resolved.
I just thought it would be worth yall noting that the loop is not
ignoring the # files for w/e reason.
