Linux Trap

Hi Ppl,

Need help

Code:

$ cat trap.sh
#!/bin/bash
trap cleanup 1 2 3 15
cleanup()
{
echo 的 was running \$BASH_COMMAND\ when you interrupted me.
echo 轍uitting.
exit 1
}
while :
do
echo -en 塗ello. 
sleep 1
echo -en 杜y 
sleep 1
echo -en 渡ame 
sleep 1
echo -en 妬s 
sleep 1
echo $0
done


Any reason you ppl see why "1 2 3 15" was used as arument to cleanup


Thanks

1 2 3 15 are not arguments to cleanup they are signals to trap

Code:
1 - hangup
2 - interrupt
3 - quit
15 - software termination (kill)

Check man bash for details of the trap internal command.

Editing your script in Microsoft Word has filled it with nasty smart quotes which the shell will not understand as being quote characters.

Be sure to change all your “ ” back into " " if you want it to work.

Hi Our problem is knowing: What is the "best" way of simulating a TRAP for ERR within a function, since we know this will not work directly with ksh93 and aix5. How can we save the error encountered in the function and then deal with it in the calling script? Thanks! (3 Replies)

Need help with trap

My problem is this: I need to have a catch-all for my processes.

Not only that, but I also... (7 Replies)
