       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	direc
       tories 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  dont
	      actually run them.

       --list print  the  names of the all matching files (not limited to exe
	      cutables), but dont 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 scripts 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.
