I want to run several commands in parallel, but I have no idea why the following code piece does not work.
#!/bin/bash ( ping 126.96.36.199 ) ( ping 192.168.0.1 )
It completely ignores the second ping command. Why is that so?
Edit: OK, now I know that you can run them in parallel by doing
ping 188.8.131.52 & ping 192.168.0.1
But why did the above code piece not work?
