Can anyone help explain what's going on with
exec? I'm trying to set up a tmux session with a 4-pane window. Ideally, I want to run a command in 3 of the panes: e.g. a Ruby Thin server and a couple of Ruby daemons. This is what I have so far:
#!/bin/sh tmux new-session -d -s foo 'exec pfoo "bundle exec thin start"' tmux rename-window 'Foo' tmux select-window -t foo:0 tmux split-window -h 'exec pfoo "bundle exec compass watch"' tmux split-window -v -t 0 'exec pfoo "rake ts:start"' tmux split-window -v -t 1 'exec pfoo' tmux -2 attach-session -t foo
#!/bin/bash cd ~/projects/foo rvm use ree # here I want to execute command1 2 3 or 4... exec $SHELL
It all works... but when I
ctlr-c in the first pane that is running the thin server, it stops the thin server and returns to the shell. However, the command is not in the history; i.e. if I hit the up key I don't get the
bundle exec thin start command... I get some other command from my bash history. I'm wondering if there's any way to arrange these scripts so that I get the commands in the bash history.
Also... I've tried many combinations of
exec $SHELL -s ..., and
exec $SHELL -s ... -I and I'm not quite sure what is going on...
Can anyone help explain the general idea of what is going on with
