To start acushare, you simply enter the following on the command line:
A successful start creates a background process that handles license management and shared code. You can specify:
acushare -start -f
to have acushare run in the foreground.
If you want acushare to start automatically each time your system boots, you can add a small amount of code to the system boot file. The name of the boot file varies from system to system. Typical names are /etc/rc.local, /etc/brc, or /etc/rc. Identify the proper startup file and add lines similar to the following:
if [ -f /usr/etc/acushare ]; then echo Starting ACUCOBOL-GT shared-code and license daemon> \ /dev/console /usr/etc/acushare -start > /dev/console fi
The above example assumes that you've placed acushare in /usr/etc. You may need to adjust the sample code to match the conventions used in your environment.
