Re: Problem in running scripts

What happens when you use "@"? This isn't a special char except it may be the line kill char. See "stty -a". Fix by:
$ stty kill ^u

Do you intend "@" to be anything other than a data char or part of a filename of command?

Hi Handley,

Thanks for your response..

The problem is...

see we have an sql script in one of my partion..

i want to run the script..

what we usually do for another client using solaris..we will run the script by nohup option..

nohup sqlplus system/oralce @script.sql &

@ not a filename we use to call script that we have stored in current partion.

so please suggest me how to rubn scripts in HP-unix..

You are running the script "sqlplus" with the
arguments: system/oracle and @script.sql. Then putting it in the background with the output sent to nohup.out

>@ not a filename we use to call script that we have stored in current partion.

"@" is just a character and isn't anything special to a real shell.

>so please suggest me how to run scripts in HP-UX

sqlplus is your script. Unless your question is about sqlplus scripts?? (Which has nothing to do with nohup.)

Actually in a real shell, "@" is used as a parm, $@ and for file name generation.

The scummy C shell uses it for assignment.

None of these appears to be what you are trying to do.

Re: Problem in running scripts

use '\' before @...
nohup sqlplus system/oracle \@script.sql &
