You can can command on the same command in several ways. It depends
on what you put between the command.

; - always run the next command.
&& - run the second command only if the first command is successful.
|| - run the second command if the first one fails.


  Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
