Whatever scripts you want to run, write them in a file - the way you would execute them at command line

Write them in the order in which you want to execute them

Your file may look like:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
script_01.sh
script_02.sh
script_03.pl

and then run the file (its basically another shell script) that you have created

Check out the permissions of the scripts,if they are not executable then change the permissions and run it as Yogesh suggested.

yes, and the first line in the scripts should begin with #! (something like #!/bin/bash or #!/usr/bin/perl - depending on the shell / language that you are using)
