NAME
run - run an executable
SYNOPSIS
run [-s] [-e] [-n] [-t string] program
DESCRIPTION
The run command runs program, using the PATH variable to find it. By default, when program has completed, the user is prompted (Press ENTER to continue:), before being returned to FMLI. The argument program is a system executable followed by its options (if any).
OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -e If -e is specified, the user is prompted before returning to FMLI only if there is an error condition -n If -n is specified, the user is never prompted before returning to FMLI (useful for programs like vi, in which the user must do some specific action to exit in the first place). -s The -s option means "silent", implying that the screen does not have to be repainted when program has completed. The -s option should only be used when program does not write to the terminal. In addition, when -s is used, program cannot be interrupted, even if it recognizes interrupts. -tstring If -t is specified, string is the name this process has in the pop-up menu generated by the frm-list command.
EXAMPLES
Example 1 Sample Output of the run Command Here is a menu that uses run: menu="Edit special System files" name="Password file" action=`run -e vi /etc/passwd` name="Group file" action=`run -e vi /etc/group` name="My .profile" action=`run -n vi $HOME/.profile`
