SYNOPSIS

rcstart [-vnpslh] [services]

DESCRIPTION

The rcstart script was written to give easier access to init scripts in the rc.d(8) folders. The parameter given to those scripts is its own name minus the ’rc’ prefix. Different parameters are realized by creating links.

The following aliases are available:
Fr rcstart rcstatus rcstop rcrestart
  Use services that have service_enable="yes" set.
Fr rconestart rconestatus rconestop rconerestart
  Use services that do not have service_enable="yes" set.

OPTIONS

The following options are available:
-v --verbose
  Be verbose after this parameter.
-n --not-verbose
  Do not be verbose after this parameter.
-p --paths
  Display the paths that are scanned for init scripts.
-s --services
  Display all available services.
-l --locate
  Following this parameter scripts will not be executed, but their location will be printed until -n or -v appear.
-h --help
  Displays the available options.
services
  A service is provided by an init script in an rc.d folder. The name of the service provided by an rc.d script can be identified through the PROVIDE keyword.

The services parameter is treated as a regular expression by the rcstart script.

EXAMPLES

To restart all SQL servers simply run:
rcrestart ’.*sql’

If the servers have no respective entries in /etc/make.conf, the command has to look like this:

rconerestart ’.*sql’

COMPATIBILITY

The script has been tested on FreeBSD 7.2-PRERELEASE.
