itruns - set up files for use by the it command
/sbin/itruns file [file...] in run-state [, file [file...]
in run-state] [,...]
The itruns program sets up scripts to be run by it(8).
(These programs are typically used within system configuration
and installation scripts.) The itruns command
searches for /sbin/it.d/bin/file. If itruns finds the
file, it creates one or more symbolic links from
/sbin/it.d/run-state.d/file to /sbin/it.d/bin/file.
The run-state argument can be a single run state, or it
can be two run states separated by either the word or or
the word and. If two run states are specified with the or
keyword, itruns checks for (and creates, if necessary) a
directory whose name combines both run states and places a
link in that directory so that the file will be executed
when the it program detects either state. You can collapse
two or-separated states into a single expression;
for example, 2 or 3 can be expressed as 23. If the and
keyword is used, itruns checks for (and creates, if necessary)
two separate directories and places a link in each
of them so that either state triggers execution of the
file independently of the other state.
If two or more files are specified for a single run-state
argument, links are created for all of the files as indicated
by the run-state argument.
If two or more combinations of files and run states are
specified as comma-separated expressions, itruns treats
each combination individually.
The itruns command must be executed from the root directory
(/). The command finds only files that are located in
the /sbin/it.d/bin directory.
This example sets up the doconfig script to be run when
the system is booted to run state 2: itruns doconfig in 2
Either of the command lines in this example sets up the
doconfig and getdate scripts to be run when the system is
booted to run state 2 or to run state 3: itruns doconfig
getdate in 2 or 3 itruns doconfig getdate in 23 This example
sets up the doconfig script to be run when the system
is booted to run state 2 and again when the system comes
to run state 3, the getdate script to be run only in run
state 2, and the getsysname script to be run only in run
state 3: itruns doconfig in 2 and 3, getdate in 2, getsysname
