NAME

       parrot_package_run - repeat a program within the package with the help of parrot_run

SYNOPSIS

       parrot_package_run --package-path your-package-path [command]

DESCRIPTION

       If  parrot_run is used to repeat one experiment, one mountlist must be created so that the
       file access request of your program can be redirected into the package. parrot_package_run
       is  used  to create the mountlist and repeat your program within the package with the help
       of parrot_run and mountlist. If no command is given, a /bin/sh shell will be returned.

OPTIONS

        -p, --package-path
              The path of the package.

        -e, --env-list
              The path of the environment file, each line is  in  the  format  of  <key>=<value>.
              (Default: package-path/env_list)

        -h, --help
              Show this help message.

EXIT STATUS

       On success, returns zero. On failure, returns non-zero.

EXAMPLES

       To repeat one program within one package /tmp/package in a bash shell:

               % parrot_package_run --package-path /tmp/package /bin/bash

       After the execution of this command, one shell will be returned, where you can repeat your
       original program. After everything is done, exit parrot_package_run:

               % exit

       You can also directly set your command as the arguments  of  parrot_package_run.  In  this
       case, parrot_package_run will exit automatically after the command is finished, and you do
       not need to use exit to exit. However, your command must belong to  the  original  command
       set executed inside parrot_run and preserved by parrot_package_create.

               % parrot_package_run --package-path /tmp/package ls -al

       Here is a short instruction about how to make use of parrot_run, parrot_package_create and
       parrot_package_run to generate one package for your experiment and repeat your  experiment
       within your package.

       Step  1: Run your program under parrot_run and using --name-list and --env-list parameters
       to record the filename list and environment variables.

               % parrot_run --name-list namelist --env-list envlist /bin/bash

       After the execution of this command, you can run your program inside  parrot_run.  At  the
       end of step 1, one file named namelist containing all the accessed file names and one file
       named envlist containing environment variables will be  generated.   After  everything  is
       done, exit parrot_run:

               % exit

       Step 2: Using parrot_package_create to generate a package.

               % parrot_package_create --name-list namelist --env-path envlist --package-path /tmp/package

       At the end of step 2, one package with the path of /tmp/package will be generated.

       Step 3: Repeat your program within your package.

               % parrot_package_run --package-path /tmp/package /bin/bash

       After the execution of this command, one shell will be returned, where you can repeat your
       original program. After everything is done, exit parrot_package_run:

               % exit
