Description saint 1998-11-16 12:18:25 EST
If the convention is Snn and Knn as a prefix to script names
in the various run level folders, then shouldn't the glob
be more specific in the script /etc/rc.d/rc?

It could be:
    for i in /etc/rc.d/rc$runlevel.d/K[0-9][0-9]*; do
        ...
    done
and
    for i in /etc/rc.d/rc$runlevel.d/S[0-9][0-9]*; do
        ...
    done

It is:
    for i in /etc/rc.d/rc$runlevel.d/K*; do
        ...
    done
and
    for i in /etc/rc.d/rc$runlevel.d/S*; do
        ...
    done

changed priority, but he does have a point.  Seems reasonable.
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1998-11-22 11:09:59 EST
The current implementation (using K* rather than K[0-9][0-9]*) is
identical to that implemented in SVR4 from which the entire
convention has been borrowed. Adding a more restrictive glob
solves no purpose that I can fathom (other than the obvious
non-problem).
