Programming This forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

automation


hi

i'm running linux on a test computer low of resources
(this is better because with low resource i can learn better how to optimize.....this is also bad because the work to do is sometimes frustrating...)
env:mandrake 10.1
now the problem....
i have several situation where a pgmA need another prerequisite pgmB to be running....now the pre-req pgmB is automatically started in the /etc/init.d directory as linux service....
but for me is better to have an executable or a script performing the following actions....
start pgm A
start pgm B

then when pgm B is stopped,stop also pgm A
i think the script is easier....
i'm a linux newbye.....i was working for many years on ibm mainframes...
but i do not know linux languages....script C etc etc....

thanks in advance...

Maurizio

Can you give an example of one of the situations where you need to do this. I mean, the two programs and why you need it done like that. Ta, FrankP

Put this in a script:
pgmA && pgmB && skill -TERM pgmA


Cheers,
