Manual run a script on UNIX

Hi,I'm currently working on an dev environment that has no jobs to run the scripts.How can I manual run the scripts. on Unix?

---------- Post updated at 05:45 AM ---------- Previous update was at 05:43 AM ----------

Is it something like this....

../int/inbound>./ inputfilename

yes - it is:

[path to script][script name] parameter1

The example you gave means
1. go up the directory tree one hop -- the .. part
2. descend the int/inbound> directory -- is the > part of the directory name?
3. execute

../ -I only shows the directory path shortcut there that was too long to say this the command?

./ inputfilename

will I execute that on the directory that the scripts calling..?
for ex. if the script calls in the directory

./ means look in the current directory. So the answer is yes, your example is correct

Hi again =)
Is it right that I will execute to manual run the script where the script is located.?
for example my script is located in autosys/scripts so I will execute the manual running of the scripts on that directory.?

This is one way to start the script; change directory to the directory where the script "lives", and start with ./ in front of your script:

cd your_directory_here

cd /bin

(yes - a stupid example)

or: use the absolute path in front of the script:



best regards
