currently, I'm trying to make some REXX stuff I've got on OS/2 work on Linux. (Debian Lenny with Regina 3.3).
I was used to seeing the standard output of external scripts in the console of the calling script:
Now under Linux, all output of the called script seems to end up somewhere invisible..
Also, I always have to specify the fill path to the called script, the search algorithm that's in the Regina doc
doesn't seem to work here for unknown reasons. Maybe these problems are even related (the external command being started in a separate shell?).
/* 1st script calling another one */
say 'Calling script!'
call './myscript.cmd called from first'
/* call myscript "called from first" wouldn't work , gives a shell error message of file not found */
/* myscript.cmd, called from the above*/
if argl = '' then say 'No Args'
else say argl
/*This output will vanish*/
