I've got a shell script that in essence does this:
If the mainapp returns too soon, the assumption must be that
there is a configuration problem of some sort. Under those
conditions, I don't want to immediately jump to the pre-process
stuff and start the mainapp again.
Instead, I want to sleep for an arbitrary time between attempts
(giving an operator some leeway to fix the configuration before
If mainapp runs long enough, then it should just post-, pre-
mainapp again immediately.
What's a good sh algorithm for the above? (assume < 10
seconds indicates error condition and a 50 second sleep
between iterations when necessary, and I don't need a
'five attempts then sleep' thing). Also, assume I've
simplified for the home audience. The sh script is
lots more involved then the example above implies.
