Subject getting the exec task to run a script which spawns a child process
Date Fri, 28 Feb 2003 17:35:45 GMT

I use the exec task to run a shell script called has "bar &" inside of
it, which spawns a background child process. finishes pretty quickly, but the exec
task waits for bar to finish before moving on.  This is a problem for me because bar is supposed
to run indefinitely.

I searched this mailing list but I haven't found my exact problem.  I found,
which explains a workaround for getting to run indefinitely.  Do I use the same workaround
to get bar to run indefeintely?
