NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       run-parts - run scripts or programs in a directory

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       run-parts  [--test] [--verbose] [--report] [--umask=umask] [--arg=argument]
 [--help] [--version] directory

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       run-parts runs a number of scripts or programs found in a single directory
  directory.   Filenames should consist entirely of upper and lower
       case letters, digits,  underscores,  and  hyphens.   Subdirectories  of
       directory and files with other names will be silently ignored.

       Scripts	must  follow the #!/bin/interpretername convention in order to
       be executed.  They will not automatically be executed by /bin/sh.

       The files found will be run in the lexical sort order of the filenames.

   OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]
       --test print  the  names  of  the scripts which would be run, but don't
	      actually run them.

	      print the name of each script to stderr before running.

	      similiar to --verbose, but only prints the name of scripts which
	      produce  output.	 The  script's name is printed to whichever of
	      stdout or stderr the script first produces output on.

	      Sets the umask to  umask	before	running  the  scripts.	 umask
	      should  be  specified  in octal.	By default the umask is set to

	      Pass argument to the scripts.  Use --arg once for each  argument
	      you want passed.

       --     Specifies  that  this  is  the end of the options.  Any filename
	      after -- will be not be interpreted as  an  option  even	if  it
	      starts with a hyphen.

       --help Display usage information and exit.

	      Display version and copyright and exit.
