Oh, my girlfriend really likes it when I launch php scripts! There's something special about them, she says ...
Thus, I coded this script to run throught the CLI (Command Line Interface) - so it's running locally, not on a web server.
It launches just fine through right click > open > run in terminal but closes right after execution. **Is there a way to keep the terminal window open?
Of course I can launch it through a terminal window - which would stay open - but I'm looking for a one click action. With bash scripts I use
$SHELL but that didn't work (see code below).
So far, the only thing I came up with is
sleep(10); which gives me 10 seconds for my girl to check the output. I'd rather close the terminal window manually, though.
#!/usr/bin/php -q <?php echo "Hello World \n"; # wait before closing terminal window sleep(10); # the following line doesn't work $SHELL; ?>
