unix_x

shell (sh) command execution, output redirected to a window

Calling Sequence

unix_x(cmd)

Arguments

cmd

a character string

Description

Sends a string cmd to Unix for execution by the sh shell. The standard output is redirected to a window. Unix execution errors are trapped; *NOTE* that only the last shell command error is reported when a list of command separated by ";" is sent: this is not recommended.

Examples

if getos() == 'Windows' then 
  unix_x("dir "+""""+WSCI+"modules\graphics\demos"+""""); 
else 
  unix_x("ls $SCI/modules/graphics/demos");
end
