Shell that should run always

Hi All,
I am using AIX 4.3. Is there a way we can run a shell script continuously ?. OS should start the shell if the script process is killed.

Please help....

Thanks...

Don't have a AIX box to look at but /etc/inittab should be what you are looking for - you can spawn a process off at boot and if it dies, then it spawns another.

Check man inittab for further information.
