Using Shell Scripts
Shell scripts can be helpful for organizing sequences
of terminal commands to execute them in a specific order
with a single call.
Shell scripts usually have the extension
and should start with a so called shebang (
#!...), telling the
interpreter what binary to use.
After that, single commands can be
added as separate lines, just as using them in the terminal.
The following script
test.sh starts the JACK server in the background,
waits for 3 seconds and afterwards launches the simple client, playing
a sine tone.
#! /bin/bash jackd & sleep 3 jack_simple_client
The script can be executed from its source location as follows:
$ bash test.sh
Shell scripts can be made executable with the following command:
$ chmod +x test.sh
Afterwards, they can be started like binaries, when including the correct shebang:
Create an executable shell script in your personal directory on the server.
echo command in that script to print a simple message and run the
file via SSH.
