One way is to have a standalone as the last statement. This will make the program to wait for any input. Another approach is to use sleep 10 which will wait for 10 seconds.

My terminal should open once I click the icon in desktop. For example, open an new terminal, the .bashrc file run automatically and the same time terminal kept open for new command.

Salil has given you one way of displaying the output of your script when clicked by holding the shell open with the . There is no way to fall back into the shell, because nothing exists there besides your script process to hold it open. Process terminates shell window gone!

I tried to compile git 2.4.3 on Solaris 10. I used the following configuration:

$ ./configure --without-iconv

$ grep -i iconv config.status
 set X /bin/bash './configure' '--without-iconv'
$ac_configure_extra_args --no-create --no-recursion

But when I try to compile it, I get an error that libiconv is missing:

 LINK git-credential-store
Undefined first referenced
 symbol in file
libintl_gettext libgit.a(lockfile.o)
libiconv_close libgit.a(utf8.o)

libiconv libgit.a(utf8.o)
ld: fatal: symbol referencing errors. No output written to git-credential-store

gmake: *** [git-credential-store] Error 1

How can I work around this?

Do you know if there is a working module that can be used to post to WordPress from a Perl script? I've seen that all the modules that contain WordPress are very old.

I need to install that module under a Perl built with Perlbrew. I tried to install WordPress, WordPress::API, but they both depend on WordPress::XMLRPC which depends on SOAP::Lite which depends on XML::Parser which can't be installed because of the error "expat.h - no such file or directory".
I also tried to install XML::Parser::Expat but it gives the same error.

By curiosity I searched for a Python module, and I found python-wordpress-xmlrpc, I installed it very fast and easy, I found that it offers more features than the Perl module WordPress, I tested a sample script I found on the web, and it worked very well.
