Hello List,

in the "ulm" libraries, in Module "CallShell" there is procedure
"Call", allowing a program to call a shell and execute some other
program or system command. Is there something similar in the "iso"

Thanks and regards, Georg

Hi Georg,

res := libc.system (ADR ("command")) ;

No such animal in ISO, Gaius.

In fact, there seemed to be definite bias against anything that smacked of POSIX. (Hence, one of their blunders is not specifying the exact nature of the command arguments. Some compilers chose the called command as the first argument, as in POSIX, whilst others chose the first passed argument as the first argument.)

By the way, how is the Solaris port going (he asked hopefully)?


should do the trick,
