Bash script
Greetings All!

I believe this is where this ? goes...

Not sure if this is where I would ask this question or not? I am trying to
make bash script to combine a
couple of other scripts and I had a couple of questions. So If I make a
script that performs something
and then it calls say another script, would the first script then pause until
the called side script
completes? If not is there a way to make it wait to move forward until the
other one completes? I hope I
am describing this well for you.

Calling another script is just like calling another program. It
will wait for it to finish before continuing unless you run it in
the backgound.

Hello Kai;

I'll wrap the two in brackets so an offline quote won't confuse you.

{ cat file > results.txt } write the results of "cat file" to results.txt
as a NEW file.

{cat file2 >> results.txt } -appends- the results of "cat file2" to results.txt
which follows the results of "cat file".

This forum contains echomail areas hosted on Nightmare BBS You can browse local echomail areas, italian fidonet areas and a selection of international fidonet areas, reading messages posted by users in Nightmare BBS or even other BBSs all over the world. You can find file areas too (functional to fidonet technology). You can browse echomail areas and download files with no registration, but if you want to write messages in echomail areas, or use fidonet netmail (private messages with fidomet technology), you have to register. Only a minimal set of data is required, functional to echomail and netmail usage (name, password, email); a registration and login with facebook is provided too, to allow easy registration. If you won't follow rules (each echomail areas has its own, regularly posted in the echomail), your account may be suspended;
