Here's a first rough cut of Linux script which attempts to launch
PostgreSQL as a somewhat LSB conforming application. It's very
lightly tested and I haven't gone through to confirm that every corner
case is handled exactly right; in fact on my kubuntu workstation (the
only place I've tested so far) the status command returns 4 ("program
or service status is unknown") when I think it should be returning 3
("program is not running"), so I've got something to chase down there.
And I haven't even tried to deal with the "false positive" problem
But before I spend a lot of time fine-tuning it, I wanted to post this
as a proof-of-concept draft and see if people think it's on the right
Did I do anything which is considered "bad technique"?
Am I using any techniques which aren't sufficiently portable?
Is anything just outright *wrong*?
