http://www.linuxquestions.org – I want to us the time command to run and time multiple commands and output them to a log file. how can I do this? I've tried quite a lot The problem right now is two fold. I thought this should work to at least output the time to the screen, but no luck. Code: time {$CONFIGCOMMAND \       $MAKECOMMAND \       $INSTALLCOMMAND \     } (HowTos)
