In a proper RCNG script you don't parse stop/start, you override the stop/start functions. Parsing $1 directly is how the old-style scripts use to work, but the base system and most ports now use the RCNG framework. > Yes, it's somewhat dirty if you > ignore start/stop arguments (and if you ignore them you can't rely on > nice built-in features like "restart" internally executing stop, then > start) but it works. It depends, if the script is just starting a daemon then it can simply use the default start/stop handlers, and stop/start/restart works without any explicit handling. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
