How do I run a command in script from a particular directory?


I need to write to a Notes/Domino log file - the command has to be run from the domino data directory... eg:

cd /notes/domino
/opt/lotuus/bin/server -c "###### log message ######"

i.e. I have to change into /notes/domino first, as the server program relies on files in this dir.

How do I do this in a script? I know I can add the lines as above to the script, but is this reliable?

Dave

You simply put the cd line in your script as you suggested. I don't see why it should have any reliability problems, but I may be missing something.

cheers
