To run number of commands sequentially

Filed under: Linux Tips & Tricks — Kunal Jain @ 10:14

To run number of command sequentially, put a “;” between each command

./configure; make; make install

To run a command only if the one before succeeds, use “&&” between them instead

./configure && make && make install

Similarly to run a command only if the one before it fails, use “||”

./configure || echo "configure failed"
