Execution Flow

Posted by priyadharshini (priyadharshini), 23 July 2008

           'm using vi editor to type my tcl scripts. Whatever statement i type in the third row of the editor is not being executed. could anyone point the reason?
these are the first 2 lines,
#!/bin/sh -d
# \

Thank you,

The \ on the end of the second line - which is a comment - means that the next line is an extension of it.   In other words it's an extension to the comment - so it does nothing.
