Abstract

Often in a computer system environment, a user must enter numerous commands many times. To remove the need to perform this task over and over again he will automatically enter them using techniques such as an 'exec' or a 'profile' with a prescribed set of commands. This becomes critical in the case where it is desirable for commands to execute concurrently or a command can complete asynchronously and where there is a precedence structure to the commands.
