inittab fields
 
HI,

i read the manpages for inittab but i still canīt realy understand what the meaning of the first three fields is. For instance :

2:7:wait:/etc/myprocess



can anyone refer me to some understandable writing or just to explain them?

Here is an explanation of inittab:

The contents of inittab vary quite a bit from one distribution to another. What distribution are you using? Post your entire inittab and somebody who runs that distribution can probably explain the fields that you want to understand.
