I add the following script line to the red-hat crontab, script should run on Saturday in 5:00 in the morning. In order to run the script
/var/scripts/PLW.pl every Saturday at 05:00 morning. I want to check the exit status from the script.
my question : is it possible to add in the crontab after the script line the something like this
0 0 * * 5 /var/scripts/PLW.pl [[ $? -eq 0 ]] && run_once.bash
so if exit status is 0 the
run_once.bash script will be activated.
You can do something like,
0 0 * * 5 /usr/bin/python /var/scripts/PLW.pl && /bin/bash /path/to/run_once.bash
&& /bin/bash /path/to/run_once.bash will only run if previous command run successfully. So instead of using exit code, you can use
&&‘s inbuilt functionality.
