Question How to restart a script from the top

Hi folks!

I'm starting to get pretty good at this, I still have a question left. I can't seem to figure out how to start a script from the top once it completes...

SunOS 5.7 with Bash 2.01.

Here's a "schedule" of my script:

1. First I have some functions declared
2. The functions are called
3. Then display result
4. Next I need to start from top without quiting script

Is there a way to use "goto" as you would in DOS-batch language? I know that there is no "goto" command in Bash and know from the Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide that functions will do exactly the same.

However, I can't seem to make it work... Smilie

If your intention is to execute the steps:1 through 3, in a loop indefinitly, just put the steps :2 through 3 inside an indefinite while loop.

Else, just give the command to invoke your shell script, in the last line of your shell script.
