Job Description

We need someone who is very good with scripting. We have a large list of shell scripts that need to run in sequence. If one hangs I do not want the complete run to stop. Each shell script needs to be checked for status and if it is ok send a results file using rcp/scp (or move to anotehr folder). Each failed script needs to be re-tried several times before the failure if reported. so basically we are looking for a script control mechanism here.

For portability we would like this to be writting in perl.

We have a full spec available.

We do not pay up front fees so anyone who stipulates this will be rejected.

Ignore the budget, we can discuss price but obviously we want the best script for the best price.

Please, only apply if you have knowledge of how scripts run under linux/unix. We are not interested in windows and none of our script run on this platform.

Target OS Ubuntu, FreeBSD and CentOS.

Skills: shell-scripting, linux, unix
