    Is there a way to get this to process the “_chklist” with a comma delimited instead of a space between the processes?

    e a Bash shell script that creates 10 files under the directory /tmp/ with the names:

    Foo1, foo2, … etc. then write in each of them “Hello in 1”, Hello in 2”, …etc.

    Then rename them to the names CPE471_0_file, CPE471_1_file , CPE471_9_file , etc.

      change the section under: ## Send a quick email update (good for cron jobs) ##


      ## Send a quick email update (good for cron jobs) ##
      [[ “$_failed” == “true” && “$_sendemail” == “yes” ]] &” | $_mail -s ‘Service not Running’ “$_email”;
