Why can't I use the nice command inside a script? And what can I use instead?
The code below does not work but if I remove the "nice +20" it works fine but I bully everyone else's jobs out of the queue. any thoughts?
nice +20 ./myprogram1
nice +20 ./myprogram2
nice +20 ./myprogram3
nice +20 ./myprogram
PS when I preview the question my PLUS symbols disappear for some reason, but rest assured I use "nice" then a space then a plus then the number 20.....
