I have a C++ code which fires, does its thing, and waits for input.
I need to get it up and running automatically from boot up.
I am able to open xterm with the following line in the .bash_profile
# run the following programs
but my C++ application "proj" is in $HOME/path/to/proj
who can I do this since it waits on input from the command line. I tried
xterm | path/to/proj
xterm & path/to/proj
