4# Usage:
5#
6# run-in-pagsh [--fg] name command [argument ...]
7#
8# The argument `name' is a short description of the program to call,
9# without any spaces. It is used for making a PID file, which ensures
10# that only one instance of your command is running.
11#
12# The arguments that come afterward specify the command to run and its
13# arguments, if any.
14#
15# If the command will run in the foreground, then you should use the
16# `--fg' argument, making sure that it is the very first argument to
17# run-in-pagsh.
18#
19# Examples:
20#
21# run-in-pagsh interchange ~/interchange/bin/interchange
22#
23# run-in-pagsh --fg clean-mail ~/scripts/clean-mail
24#
25# Make sure that the ~/.run directory exists and is writable.
26# See http://wiki2.hcoop.net/MemberManual/RunningUnattendedCommands
27# for instructions on how to accomplish this.
