'batch and 'at'
« on: April 23, 2015, 10:05:35 PM »
I had the question come up about running batch jobs under TC .. frankly I hadn't considered it.
A quick search didn't reveal anything .. is one available ???

What do you want to do? Run commands from one file like .bat in Windows? In Linux it is called shell script. Do you want to run a -bat (like) command at specific time? Look for cron

Don't run windows -- ever.

I taking about the Linux/Unix programs -- usually called 'at'  -- that provides a 'batch' facility to run background jobs typically when the system has a lower load.   With today's multi-core machines this can be helpful (my machine has a FULL eight core processor -- typical for the project).
