In a shell script I'm launching an app which is particularly chatty and
wants to spew a load of stuff to the command line as it starts up.
Unfortunately it also spews its error messages to stdout WHICH MAKES
My solution is
if [ -z "$!" ]
echo "Erk - failure!";
And all is well and good. The problem is that chatty_app also doesn't
background itself but putting
doesn't work i.e it never gets to the test so non of the other stuff I
want running (which must run after chatty_app) works.
Anybody got any ideas?
