Shell Commands/Run

From MorphOS Library

< Shell Commands

Run - Spawns a background shell or process


DETACH  - Runs the command on a fake CLI                                       
QUIET   - Removes text messages
STACK   - Specify the stacksize (in bytes) of the command to run
PRI     - Specify the priority of the command to run
COMMAND - Command to run (must be the LAST argument)

Run attempts to run the command COMMAND including specified arguments in the background. You can run multiple commands by separating them with a '+'. If you press [Return] after a plus sign, Run interprets the next line as a continuation of the same command line.

NOTE: to be able to close the CLI window after having detached a command, you have to redirect the command's output to NIL:


MorphOS:> run >NIL: SYS:Utilities/Taskmanager
