I am fairly new to UNIX so pardon me if the following questions seem trivial.
I have some basic UNIX books, but they do not cover the following:
I have two applications that can run totally independent. My goal is to
link the two programs via stdout and file sharing. Because each process
is computationally intensive, I would like to run the process concurrently
on two different processors (either one machine when dual processors are
available to me, or two machines). I realize this is a global hunger
problem so my initial goal is to have both programs running on one machine
From my simple point of view, two possibilities come to mind:
1. Have each process run in the background of a single shell
2. Have each process run under seperate shells
I would appreciate any information on how to accomplish this task or where
I can get the information to accomplish this task.
Note: I have an HP 715/50 and reading the man pages on the shell (ksh) has
only confused me.
