scripting to run perl scripts


I would appreciate help with the following. I would like to write some
sort of shell script that would consist of 3 lines each calling a different
perl script to run.

How would I go about doing this?

The issue that I am most concerned with is that the calls complete
before going to the next line. Some of the calls can take a couple of
hours and one takes perhaps a day. The last one is the one that takes
about a day.

For example:


I know in the shell script it will be listed sequentially but will
the script wait for to complete before calling

If not should I do somthing like write three shell scripts and then
have another shell script contain the calls run the other three shell scripts?

thanks for your help

To have them fired up at the same time you'd have to
explicitly detach them, using an & at the end of the
