Launch and run commands from shell script

October 2016

For example:

I have the running Qemu and I am telnetting to get shell.

Open the terminal and do a
this command will takes to a busybox shell now type "ps" command this will gives all the running process inside the Qemu.

Now i want to automate the above steps in a shell scripting something like
#! /bin/sh 



The code below works for me:

#! /bin/bash 

sleep 1 
) | telnet
