       run-parts - run scripts or programs in a directory


       run-parts     [--test]     [--verbose]     [--report]    [--lsbsysinit]
       [--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
       described  below,  found  in  directory  directory.   Other  files  and
       directories are silently ignored.

       If  the  --lsbsysinit  option  is not given then the names must consist
       entirely of upper and lower  case  letters,  digits,  underscores,  and

       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

       Files are run in the lexical sort  order  of  their  names  unless  the
       --reverse  option  is given, in which case they are run in the opposite

       --test print the names of the scripts which would  be  run,  but  don’t
              actually run them.

       --list print  the  names  of  the  all  matching  files (not limited to
              executables), 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.

       -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
              after  --  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.
