executes some Windows, Linux or MacOS instructions: output canceled (Silent mode)
Single text containing some Windows, Linux, or MacOS instructions.
unix_s(…) opens a new session of the Operating System (OS) command
interpreter (sh with Linux, cmd.exe with
Windows, etc..), sends
commands to it,
lets it processing
commands instructions, receives the possible
error message yielded by the processing, and closes the interpreter session.
The starting working directory and environment variables of the opened interpreter are set as described for host().
The standard output of processed instructions is ignored: Nothing is displayed neither in the Scilab console nor in the OS terminal (Windows consolebox).
If an instruction in
commands generates an error,
- the error message from the OS is displayed in the Scilab console,
unix_sstops and displays its own error message.
commands, the remaining unprocessed instructions are ignored.
The effects of valid instructions processed before the erroneous one remain actual (for instance, deleted files).
if getos() == 'Windows' then unix_s("del foo"); else unix_s("rm -f foo"); end
- unix_g — executes some Windows, Linux or MacOS instructions: output in variables
