Input and output

    I am working in a small project where I use this software.
    Now I am trying to send some commands from my program to the USE console. I am working in a C# programm, and I am not able to do that. Is it possible, for example, to send any parameter when I create the process executin the "use.bat" file?

    And the second thing where I need help is that I would like to know if there is any possibility to redirect the output of USE to a log file for example, becouse I would like to process the USE results in my programm.

    I hope you can help me.

    Best regards,
    Andrés Vigil

    Hi Andrés,

    ist is possible to call the batch file with arguments. Call use.bat .h to get the whole options.

    USE has no option for a log file. We use pipe operators for regression tests to write to files. Another option may be to redirect the output of the instanciated proccess in your C# program. Maybe this could also work for the input to USE.

    It is use.bat -h

    thank you so much. I had tried to redirect the output, but I had some problems. Now I have fixed them.
    And calling use.bat -h helped me so much also.
    Now I am working as I wanted. I am working in a project that could be interesting for you and for more people that use your system USE. When I have some good thinks to publicate, I would like to share in this foro the link to the webpage of my project.

    Best regards,
