[REBOL] Re: Command/Pro call interact with external program using STDIO

From: jeperk:swbell at: 29-Jan-2003 10:08

Hello all, To introduce myself, my name is John Perkins. I just bought both SDK's and joind the list yesterday. I was failing at this yestersay and I really hoped it was just my lack of REBOL skills. I was expecting a bit different functionality in this area. The documentation seems to say that piping is functional, however I'm not seeing it either. I hoped that the call/output function could be used for monitoring a program that constantly spews output. Instead, this seems to ack like call/wait with no way to continue since the output never stops. The other odddity is that you have to use "/" instead of "\" in paths passed as an arg in a Windows exe call. Are we missing something similar on call/output and call/input? Thanks, John Perkins Michael J. Mastroianni wrote:
