How to run multiple .py in ksh?

Hi programmers, say I have 4 files :,,,

How do I, on a korn shell, create one file, run_all, that is one file that sequentially calls file1-file4, but only so if they complete w/o errors?

Something like:


Anyone know how to call a bunch a files in one file, kind of like one .sas file with'a bunch of %INCLUDE statements to call other .sas programs (for any sas programmers out there). Smilie

see samples below ... both forms mean the same thing ... modify as you see fit ...
#! /bin/ksh
PATH=/dir && \ && \ && \

exit 0

or ...
#! /bin/ksh
if [ $? -eq 0 ]
    if [ $? -eq 0 ]
        if [ $? -eq 0 ]

exit 0

the first form could also be done on the command line ...
Code: && && &&

If you've got a stack of them, you can always do this in a loop too of course:
# runs anything that starts with "file" and ends with .py in alpha order
for script in ./file*.py   
  if script
    echo "$script OK"
    echo "$script failed"
    exit 1
exit 0

I don't know what my problem is, but I tried all three above and no dice?

New to shells, but I basically have 4 files (,,, I created a new file foo in vi, typed all three types of code above and the go to the unix prompt and type foo [enter] no dice. Pyton foo, still no dice???

A normal .py has the following and works fine???


Am I executing this wrong?

what was the command you use to execute the script?

also, what are the permissions of the script? post output of ls -l foo

Doh! I bet yer right^ I prob forgot to set the permission to execute *blushing*

I just logged out of the ssh and rebooted the PC, will check in the am but bet yer prob right!

Love this place! You all are real patient and nice. Sorry for the basic questions! I've a python book on order from the library so, I should be less confused soon....(well maybe not Smilie )

The command was >foo and >ksh foo
