i dont want to go with the rename option, as if tomorrow i want to add more
scripts to run at startup i will be in a mess.
I will tell in detail so that it would be easy for you to understand my
Intention is that the script file should be called at both startup and
In Linux after doing :- 1. Copying the script to /etc/rc.d directory.
2. /sbin/chkconfig --add "scriptname"
While startup scriptfile is called with parameter *start* and while shutdown
it is called with parameter *stop.*
So i check the parameter value in the script and if it is start , i run my
executables and if it is stop i gracefully exit from my executables.
I want to achie same thing in FreeBSD.
