I know under *nix one can set up a cron script to check at a given interval if a process is running and, if not, start it. However, I am *nix illiterate and don't know how to do this. IIRC crontab -e allows you to setup cron scripts. I have no idea how you would check to see if the DD process is running and start it if not.
Also, every time I want to run a project, I have to type chmod +x /byond/bin/Dream*
and then run DD with the project. Is there an easier way to just put all of this into a script or batch file or something to simplify it?
