LXer: Text Yourself When a Long-Running Process Completes

Published at LXer:

I occasionally find myself waiting several hours for a process to complete; sometimes it’s just a very lengthy ‘make’ command, but it more often some benchmark program that needs to run for a while before generating any useful results. I got tired of being chained to my computer while these things run, so I wrote a small python script that executes an arbitrary command and text me the status when it completes. This article will show you how to use my script, in the hopes that others will also find it useful.
