I have a similar shell function I am rather fond of:

    find /etc/rc.d/"$1" /usr/local/etc/rc.d/"$1" -exec sudo {} `echo
"$*"|cut -f 2- -d \ ` \;

kpd eskarina ~% rc ntpd restart
Stopping ntpd.
Waiting for PIDS: 1151.
Starting ntpd.
find: /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ntpd: No such file or directory
zsh: exit 1
kpd eskarina ~% rc hald status
find: /etc/rc.d/hald: No such file or directory
hald is running as pid 1450.
zsh: exit 1
kpd eskarina ~%

And what is good, Phaedrus,
And what is not good—
Need we ask anyone to tell us these things?
