FMLI Commands                                             run(1F)

NAME

run - run an executable

SYNOPSIS

run [ -s ] [ -e ] [ -n ] [ -t string ] program

DESCRIPTION

The run command runs program, using the PATH variable to find it. By default, when program has completed, the user is prompted (Press ENTER to continue:), before being returned to FMLI. The argument program is a system executable fol- lowed by its options (if any).

OPTIONS

The following options are supported: -e If -e is specified, the user will be prompted before returning to FMLI only if there is an error condition -n If -n is specified, the user will never be prompted before returning to FMLI (useful for programs like vi, in which the user must do some specific action to exit in the first place). -s The -s option means "silent", implying that the screen will not have to be repainted when program has com- pleted. Note that the -s option should only be used when program does not write to the terminal. In addi- tion, when -s is used, program cannot be interrupted, even if it recognizes interrupts. -tstring If -t is specified, string is the name this process will have in the pop-up menu generated by the frm-list command. This feature requires the executable facesuspend (see face(1)) to suspend the process and return to the FMLI application.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Sample output of run command Here is a menu that uses run: menu="Edit special System files" name="Password file" action=`run -e vi /etc/passwd` name="Group file" action=`run -e vi /etc/group` name="My .profile" action=`run -n vi $HOME/.profile` SunOS 5.8 Last change: 17 Nov 1999 1 FMLI Commands run(1F)
