serdo(1) run commands serially


serdo [-c] filename


serdo will open the file given by the command line argument and serially execute all the commands in it. If a command fails, the whole batch job is aborted (unless -c is given as first paramter on the serdo command line).

serdo understands the cd and export sh(1) built-ins (no loops, no ~user expansion, no $FOO expansion, no backticks).

serdo is very limited by design, but it is nice to have if you just want to run a few ifconfig, ip, route commands in sequence. serdo will return the exit code of the last command it ran, 0 if none were given.
