I am just confirming, please have a look into the steps I have written(as per the information given by you):

1) export PATH=/usr/local/bin/bash (syntax for bash)
2) /opt/java/bin $ fuser -cu /opt
3) user:/opt/java/bin $ ll /usr/sbin/fuser
-r-xr--r-- 1 bin bin 24576 Aug 3 2000 /usr/sbin/fuser
4) user:/opt/java/bin $ exit
5) user:/opt/java/bin $ cd
6) user:/home/userID $ cp /usr/sbin/fuser .
7) user:/home/userID $ ll fuser
-r-xr--r-- 1 userID bin 24576 Feb 1 15:32 fuser
8) user:/home/userID $ fuser -cu /opt

Please correct me if I am wrong.

It's working . Cool
Once again thanks a lot VBE, you have made my day

Hello vbe,

One last question for you :

in my script I have written
export PATH=$PATH:$HOME:/usr/local/bin/bash
cd /opt/java1.3/jre/bin
fuser $1

The script is working fine but from where it calls fuser command. Is it calling from /usr/sbin/ folder. If yes then why doesn't it get executed directly ?
Please suggest me how fuser works here ??

>export PATH=$PATH:$HOME:/usr/local/bin/bash

Here what puzzles me is /usr/local/bin/bash which has nothing to do in your path

I put in my previous reply a dot (.) at the end of the variable, for
1) security reasons
2) you may (dont laught it happened to a developper last week!) have a program in your $HOME with the name of a command or "official" program...

>Please suggest me how fuser works here ??
Look this display:
rat:/home/vbe $ which fuser
rat:/home/vbe $ ll /usr/sbin/fuser
-r-xr--r-- 1 bin bin 24576 Aug 3 2000 /usr/sbin/fuser
rat:/home/vbe $
rat:/home/vbe $ cd /usr
rat:/usr $ which fuser
no fuser in /usr/bin /opt/ansic/bin /usr/ccs/bin /usr/contrib/bin /opt/nettladm/bin /opt/fc/bin /opt/fcms/bin /opt/upgrade/bin /opt/pd/bin /usr/dt/bin /usr/bin/X11 /usr/contrib/bin/X11 /opt/resmon/bin /opt/pred/bin /opt/hparray/bin /opt/ignite/bin /opt/langtools/bin /opt/imake/bin /opt/samba/bin /opt/tusc/bin /opt/hpnp//bin /opt/gcc/bin /opt/perf/bin /opt/prm/bin /opt/cobol/bin /opt/OV/bin/OpC /opt/graphics/common/bin /usr/sbin/diag/contrib /usr/sbin /sbin /usr/local/bin .

So for executables the system looks through you $PATH, since the "official" fuser is not executable for you it does not see it and continues its search... and finds the one in your home directory or wherever you put it (if you updated your PATH correctly...)

All the best
