RUN-PARTS(8)                System Manager's Manual               RUN-PARTS(8)

       run-parts - run scripts or programs in a directory

       run-parts  [--test]  [--verbose] [--report] [--lsbsysinit] [--regex=RE]
       [--umask=umask] [--arg=argument] [--exit-on-error] [--help] [--version]
       [--list] [--reverse] [--] DIRECTORY

       run-parts -V

       run-parts  runs  all  the executable files named within constraints de-
       scribed below, found in directory directory.  Other files and  directo-
       ries are silently ignored.

       If neither the --lsbsysinit option nor the --regex option is given then
       the names must consist entirely of ASCII upper- and lower-case letters,
       ASCII digits, ASCII underscores, and ASCII minus-hyphens.

       If  the  --lsbsysinit  option  is given, then the names must not end in
       .dpkg-old  or .dpkg-dist or .dpkg-new or .dpkg-tmp, and must belong  to
       one  or more of the following namespaces: the LANANA-assigned namespace
       (^[a-z0-9]+$);   the   LSB   hierarchical   and   reserved   namespaces
       (^_?([a-z0-9_.]+-)+[a-z0-9]+$);  and  the  Debian cron script namespace

       If the --regex option is given, the names must  match  the  custom  ex-
       tended regular expression specified as that option's argument.

       Files  are  run in the lexical sort order (according to the C/POSIX lo-
       cale character collation rules) of their names unless the --reverse op-
       tion is given, in which case they are run in the opposite order.

       --test print the names of the scripts which would be run, but don't ac-
              tually run them.

       --list print the names of the all matching files (not limited  to  exe-
              cutables),  but  don't actually run them.  This option cannot be
              used with --test.

       -v, --verbose
              print the name of each script to stderr before running.

              similar to --verbose, but only prints the name of scripts  which
              produce  output.   The  script's name is printed to whichever of
              stdout or stderr the script first produces output on.

              reverse the scripts' execution order.

              exit as soon as a script returns with a non-zero exit code.

              use LSB namespaces instead of classical behavior.

              run each script in a separate process session.  If you use  this
              option,  killing  run-parts  will not kill the currently running
              script, it will run until completion.

              validate filenames against custom  extended  regular  expression
              RE.  See the EXAMPLES section for an example.

       -u, --umask=umask
              sets  the  umask  to  umask  before  running the scripts.  umask
              should be specified in octal.  By default the umask  is  set  to

       -a, --arg=argument
              pass  argument to the scripts.  Use --arg once for each argument
              you want passed.

       --     specifies that this is the end of the options.  Any filename af-
              ter -- will be not be interpreted as an option even if it starts
              with a hyphen.

       -h, --help
              display usage information and exit.

       -V, --version
              display version and copyright and exit.

       Print the names of all files in /etc that start with `p' and  end  with

       run-parts --list --regex '^p.*d$' /etc
