Talking automating processes

how would one go about caching processes? I have to run several simulations with different initial conditions and would like to run them one immediately after the other if possible without having to actually be at the terminal.

God Bless,

Do a search on "bash script" a bit. I think this is the thing that you need. But if you just want to run processes one after another, just separating the program with ";":

xxx -s ddd; ddd -f lll mmm; kkk -v lll;

in the terminal will do. The programs will run after the previous one finished its job.

If you want to run specific program at specific time, "at" command is fine.
