In an init.d script using a few
/lib/lsb/init-functions, I got this line to report the status.
log_daemon_msg "Status" "$APPNAME" ; status_of_proc -p $PIDFILE $DAEMON && exit 0 || exit $?
This works, but it produces (APPNAME='hello') :
[ ok ] Status: hello[....] is running.
Why do I get
[....]? What does it mean, if anything? I've been looking into the code of init-functions, but my knowledge of bash scripting is too limited to understand fully what's going on there.
