Platform: WinXP Pro SP2
I've been a user of another REXX package for many years, but decided to give Regina REXX a spin. In the package I'm using now, in order to run a DOS command/program (including .BAT files), I simply enclose the command/program name/batch file name in quotes (single or double) inside the REXX program. I tried that in Regina REXX and it doesn't work. How can I do this in a Regina REXX program? Thanks much, Joe
If you use the 'Address System approach you can also manage input/output and errors.
Example to invoke gpg with provided standard in and trap output from stdout and stderr:
/* Set up some variables */
user = 'email@example.com'
filename = 'xxx'
gpg. = ''
gpgin.0 = 1
gpgin.1 = 'gpgkeyphrase'
gpgparms = '--yes --trust-mode always --batch --encrypt -a -o - --passphrase-fd 0 -r'
/* Invoke command */
address SYSTEM 'gpg.exe' gpgparms user '"'filename'"' WITH INPUT stem gpgin. OUTPUT STEM gpg. ERROR STEM cmd_err.
/* handle output */
if (.rs \= 0) then do
say 'return code' .rs 'from gpg'
do j = 1 to gpg.0
say j gpg.j
do j = 1 to cmd_err.0
say j cmd_err.j
Mike, thanks very much for the reply. Regards, Joe
