Linux 2.6 - man page for run-parts (linux section 8)

RUN-PARTS(8)									     RUN-PARTS(8)

       run-parts - run scripts or programs in a directory

       run-parts  [--test]  [--verbose]  [--report]  [--lsbsysinit]  [--regex=RE] [--umask=umask]
       [--arg=argument] [--exit-on-error] [--help] [--version] [--list] [--reverse]  [--]  DIREC-

       run-parts -V

       run-parts runs all the executable files named within constraints described below, found in
       directory directory.  Other files and directories are silently ignored.

       If neither the --lsbsysinit option nor the --regex option is given  then  the  names  must
       consist	entirely of ASCII upper- and lower-case letters, ASCII digits, ASCII underscores,
       and ASCII minus-hyphens.

       If the --lsbsysinit option is given,  then  the	names  must  not  end  in  .dpkg-old   or
       .dpkg-dist  or  .dpkg-new  or  .dpkg-tmp,  and must belong to one or more of the following
       namespaces: the LANANA-assigned namespace (^[a-z0-9]+$); the LSB hierarchical and reserved
       namespaces  (^_?([a-z0-9_.]+-)+[a-z0-9]+$);  and the Debian cron script namespace (^[a-zA-

       If the --regex option is given, the names must match the custom extended  regular  expres-
       sion specified as that option's argument.

       Files  are  run	in  the  lexical sort order of their names unless the --reverse option is
       given, in which case they are run in the opposite order.

       --test print the names of the scripts which would be run, but don't actually run them.

       --list print the names of the all matching files (not limited to executables),  but  don't
	      actually run them. This option cannot be used with --test.

       -v, --verbose
	      print the name of each script to stderr before running.

	      similar  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 pro-
	      duces output on.

	      reverse the scripts' execution order.

	      exit as soon as a script returns with a non-zero exit code.

	      use LSB namespaces instead of classical behavior.

	      run  each  script  in  a separate process session.  If you use this option, killing
	      run-parts will not kill the currently running script, it will run until completion.

	      validate filenames against custom extended regular expression RE.  See the EXAMPLES
	      section for an example.

       -u, --umask=umask
	      sets  the  umask to umask before running the scripts.  umask should be specified in
	      octal.  By default the umask is set to 022.

       -a, --arg=argument
	      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.

       -h, --help
	      display usage information and exit.

       -V, --version
	      display version and copyright and exit.

       Print the names of all files in /etc that start with `p' and end with `d':

       run-parts --list --regex '^p.*d$' /etc
