so it would look like something like this
my current start script :
#/Local/Library/WebServer/htdig/bin/rundig -v -l -s -a > /var/log/htdig.log
/Local/Library/WebServer/htdig/bin/rundig -v -l -s -a &
echo $! > /var/run/htdig.pid
a/ Got to either remove -v or find the correct syntax to output to the logfile
b/ The pid I get is the one of my shell running rundig (obviously).
Problem : when I kill it htdig continues to run.
solution : change rundig to call htdig with &
problem : how do I know it's dead so I can call htmerge ?
idea : add this to rundig :
while [the pid exists, syntax anyone ?]
do sleep 600
Is this a good solution ?
Thanks a bunch
