Dear experts i have a small problem...i am trying to run multiple shell scripts having same extension(.sh) in one go, which are present inside a directory. In so far i wrote a common script like as below. But problem is that it does not finish running instead it keeps running.I am unable to find out where the problems persist.I hope some expert may look into it. my small code is as below. if i do something like bash scriptone.sh, bash scriptkk.sh it works fine but i donot want manual way to do it.Thanks

 for f in *.sh; do
  bash "$f" -H 

If the common script you reference in your question also has the .sh extension, and exists in the same directory as all the other scripts you are trying to execute, then you're going to infinitely loop over all the .sh files, because you'll be calling your common script recursively.

You can resolve this in a number of ways, e.g., move the common script to a different location, or put all the non-common scripts in a specific subdirectory and modify your common script to find them there.
