writing to a pipe by a script started via cron

You run into trouble? Your script started by cron and stdout to a pipe behaves strange? (Pipe made by ‘mknod /var/pipes/mypipe p’.) [ * * * * * myscript.sh > /var/pipes/mypipe ] Solution: You have to read from this pipe, by a process or by hand. [tail -f /var/pipes/mypipe] Advertisements
