run - run an executable


     run [ -s] [-e] [-n] [-t string] program


     The run command runs program, using  the  PATH  variable  to
     find it. By default, when program has completed, the user is
     prompted (Press ENTER to continue:), before  being  returned
     to  FMLI.   The argument program is a system executable fol-
     lowed by its options (if any).


     The following options are supported:

     - e   If -e is specified, the user will be  prompted  before
           returning to FMLI only if there is an error condition

     -n    If -n is specified, the user will  never  be  prompted
           before returning to FMLI (useful for programs like vi,
           in which the user must do some specific action to exit
           in the first place).

     -s    The -s option means "silent", implying that the screen
           will  not  have  to be repainted when program has com-
           pleted. Note that the -s option should  only  be  used
           when  program does not write to the terminal. In addi-
           tion, when -s is used, program cannot be  interrupted,
           even if it recognizes interrupts.

           If -t is specified, string is the  name  this  process
           will have in the pop-up menu generated by the frm-list
           command.  This   feature   requires   the   executable
           facesuspend  (see  face(1)) to suspend the process and
           return to the FMLI application.


     Example 1: Sample output of run command

     Here is a menu that uses run:

     menu="Edit special System files"
     name="Password file"
     action=`run -e vi /etc/passwd`
     name="Group file"
     action=`run -e vi /etc/group`
     name="My .profile"
     action=`run -n vi $HOME/.profile`
