I need to run a program in the background. I know that using '&' after a command runs the command in the background.
In the following script:
#!/bin/bash echo amt of time delay nsec read nano echo amt of time delay in sec read sec echo no.of times read i while [ $i -ne 0 ] do ./nanosleep $sec $nano ./schello i=$[i-1] done
I have a few data that I get from the user. Is there a way I can run the program in background and while calling the program can I also specify the data required (like nano, sec,i) as arguments or through some other way?
